Dear editors and certified contributors,

If you want to find out which are the missing fields of a submission, hover the the completeness score.

In attachment a screenshot for submission 94461.

This information was now added to the Editor Manual.

We also plan to display this information directly on to the submission page, see ticket #2983. Currently, this ticket doesn't have any votes though.

PS: If you're not familiar with receiving reply requests for announcements, remove the reply by either replying "read", else comment or ask a question.

This should be very helpful. Consider this read.

Read. I do note that in the example, none of the missing information was necessary to confirm the validity of the submission. When you tell a submitter that an entry like this is "incomplete" you may discourage them.

Yes this is a very good feature. Thanks again to Mathieu for implementing a few months back Smile

Correct. A submission can be valid and at the same time not 100% complete

When you tell a submitter that an entry like this is "incomplete" you may discourage them.

We'd have to ask user Pommel how he feels about the 75% completeness score Smile

I wasn't aware myself, so I figured I probably wasn't the only one Wink

As my grandfather used to say: Some people think they are champagne in a tall glass, when actually, they are more like lukewarm piss in a plastic cup.

Read. I would be curious to hear back from some regular contributors regarding if and how this enhancement changes their submission process.

Read. I think the feature is good, giving me a quick view on how complete my submission is. But also knowing that a submission can be good even when not reaching 100% though.
