Tags you should know about

The community has come up with several "utility tags" to improve the quality and reliability of sentences.

  • @change - The sentence needs to be changed.
  • @check - The sentence needs to be checked.
  • @needs native check - The sentence needs to be checked by a native speaker.
  • OK - The sentence is considered correct by at least one person.

How to help

  1. You need to be an advanced contributor; otherwise you will not be able to tag sentences.
  2. Whenever you notice a sentence that is wrong or sounds strange, add the tag @change and post a comment to suggest a correction or better phrasing.
  3. Whenever you notice a possible mistake, add the tag @check and post a comment explaining what you think the mistake may be.
  4. Whenever you add a sentence in a foreign language and are not completely sure that it is correct, add the tag @needs native check.
  5. Whenever you can, browse through sentences that are tagged @change, @check, and @needs native check to discuss the sentences with other members and help decide what to do with these sentences.
  6. Once a problematic sentence has been addressed, tag it OK. More generally, you can browse and check others' sentences and tag them with OK. But do this only when you are completely sure that they are correct, and do not use the tag on your own sentences.
