  "Review" Page

+ 1 like - 0 dislike

I was realising that the navigation bar was getting overcrowded, so I decided to create a "Review" page, and link it from the top-most bar through javascript. It worked with TamperMonkey,


but for some reason, I couldn't do it through the custom HTML at the top of the page.   

So, can the link, <a href="review">Review</a>, be added the same way as the other buttons are? Then the links to each review queue can be deleted from the NavBar.

What should we call the link? Review would strongly clash with the Reviews section. Would Community Moderation be too bulky? I like the review page, and that with this only one link is needed in the top menu bar for all the review queues.

The community moderation questions inserted as links in the Pages menu of the Admin Panel, to let them appear in the top menu bar.

@Dilaton Yes I briefly considered the problems with the clash with "Reviews" but forgot about it soon after. "Community Moderation" would clash with the subcategory of meta. Probably "Moderate" would do. 

I am not sure, if we should keep the import votes seperate, as this is not for moderating existing content but getting new questions from elsewhere.

Generally, the top menu bar naturally looks for Admins more crowded than for others who do not have privileges to do certain things ... ;-)

@Dilaton I agree, we should keep import votes separate.  

@Dilaton Hm, I meant adding the link to the topmost bar; it's nice to have it on the navbar too, but it may be good to have it in the top most bar; which only polarkernel can do (it should be possible with javascript, but I couldn't make it work, as I mentioned in the question.)

@polarkernel Thanks! 

There's a typo: editng should be changed to editing


I think it is fine to keep it as "Review" in the top - most bar, there is no category link there anyways.       

Yes, there is no clash in the top-most bar itself, but for consistency reasons and because some people might otherwise think they can access the Reviews section from this link, I personally would call it Moderation there too, if @Polarkernel does not mind to change it.

@Dilaton I agree, P.S. It is "Moderate".
