Good afternoon all.
I wanted to take a little time to post in relation to discussions
regarding Collaborative Docs, one of our new features in Revolution 3.5.
Since the launch of 3.5 we have seen a lot of you taking the time to
post some really useful examples, hints and comments which have already
started to recieve positive rating from others users. Thank you to all
who have posted or left feedback up to now.
Can I start by apologising to anyone who submitted a Collaborative Docs
comment that was declined and hasn't received an email notifying them.
The email system was put in place towards the end of the 3.5 development
cycle. All who submit a comment will now receive notification when it is
approved or declined. If it is declined you will be sent your original
post and be invited to modify it and re-submit it.

HOW IT WORKS
When a new Collaborative Doc entry it submitted, it is held on one of
our servers in a 'pending' state. One of the development team will look
at all the pending comments roughly once a day and check their content
before approving them. They are looking to ensure that a comment is
helpful to the wider community and ensure that it is directly related to
the specific doc entry it has been posted against.
If a comment is not approved, an email is automatically sent to the
person who originally posted the comment. The email contains possible
reasons it was not approved and the original comments placed. This
allows them to modify and re-submit the comment if they choose to.
HOW TO POST
