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.

"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.

Ehkä tämä auttaa päättämään, mitä poistaa ja mitä jättää, ja kuinka paljon asiasta kannattaa keskustella:
