I've noticed that some people tag sentences as @not a sentence, @change, etc., but don't leave any comment, which means that someone else will have to leave a comment and wait some days before taking action. Is there a way to force users who use such tags to leave a comment suggesting a correction or even posting something like "Not a sentence. Please change it" or automatize such a thing?
Sometimes I do that too, namely when a sentence should be changed, but I can't think of a really good suggestion at that time. I tag it anyway so I won't lose sight of the sentence and can come back later. In other cases, maybe people want a corpus maintainer to look at a sentence without engaging in discussions. I've never thought of it as a problem.
Some people complain when I do something when there's no comment :/ Maybe I should just "follow" the tags?
TRANG asks corpus maintainers not to edit sentences until at least 14 days after a comment goes unanswered, so if there is no comment, all a corpus maintainer can do is to add a comment if there is only a tag and then wait 2 weeks.
> so if there is no comment
That's why I suggest a way to "force" comments if someone links a sentence as @change, @delete, @delete maybe, @not a sentence, etc :)
I suggest you to kindly ask people to do so in the cases that are problematic to you, by explaining what it is problematic. I think that's a better approach than "forcing" anything.
Since a tag has a meaning in itself, there are many cases where a comment is not necessary. For example, marafon has tagged dozens of French sentences @change for me without leaving a comment, but the "what to change" was so obvious that I didn't need any comment. If it's not that obvious, I ask in the comment "why this was tagged" to the author of the tag directly. Same goes for "unlink" sometimes, etc.
Thank you! :)
"not a sentence"-tunniste ei välttämättä vaadi mitään toimintaa. Tietokannassa on monta "lausetta", jotka eivät ole oikeita lauseita.
Often a non-sentence is a translation of another non-sentence. So what kind of comment should I put? „Change this into a sentence as soon as the original has been changed”?
It seems that there is no general policy. Some admins make them red, others tag them, others just delete them.
