Website users who are logged in, and who are not the moderators of a record, can make some changes directly, and others are saved as suggested changes -- just go to the same Edit option you use for your own records.
New events (such as adding a death date and place for someone who does not have either) can be added directly without approval needed from the moderators. They will still be notified by email of your additions.
Editing any existing information is saved for the record's moderator to approve. After being saved, but before the moderator has responded to them, these suggested changes are visible under the Suggest section. An additional field is available to include a message to the moderator about the suggested changes. This is only visible to you and the moderator, and is not saved once the moderator responds.
For the person submitting, these are listed just below the person's information, with the buttons to "Cancel" or "Remind". Here they may be canceled if needed. Unless canceled, suggested changes will show up for the moderators of the individual records until accepted or declined. If accepted, the changes will be applied directly to the records themselves.
The moderator of these records are automatically emailed a notification that you have entered a suggested update. If suggested changes sit for a long time without the moderator responding, the reminder option will re-send the email notification.
Clicking a name under the list of researchers brings up this person's profile page.
For the moderator, these are listed on the home page, and on the person's record under the "Suggestions" section. To accept changes, click the checkbox next to each one and the "Accept" button, or the "Decline" button to delete it without it updating the record.
If you choose to decline, the system prompts for a reason to decline. A couple pre-defined reasons you can be selected, or you can write your own. Whatever is written is emailed back to the person who made the suggestion. The website administrator will be copied on all messages, to monitor what kind of changes are being declined, and what the responses are.
