We will use a 1-4-10 system for all URs which require User Input. This means that any UR which is closed as "Not Identified" will be open for at least 14 days after the first comment from an editor. If you need to ask more questions, you need to wait up to 14 days for a response to each question, so the UR might be open much longer. If you understand the solution for a UR immediately and do not need to ask questions, you may be able to close the UR the first time you look at it.

  • We work as a team. Anyone may send a first response or reminder notice. If the problem is not identified and the reminder time has expired, anyone may close it. If we have a new idea, we discuss it with the other editor(s) working the UR.
  • No automated responses. We prefer targetted, customized responses and questions.
  • We always analyze a UR and all available clues before making our first response
  • If editors need to discuss the analysis or approrpriate response to the reporter. We do not discuss in the UR.
  • UR reporters and other editors are all respected members of the community and partners in closing URs. We treat everone with respect and courtesy. Even when they are wrong or make an unpleasant response. :)
  • Always close with an appropriate, targetted comment thanking the UR reporter for helping with the map.
