I suggest adding a simple pulldown menu for the
editors (a la metamoderation) to give simple short
reason/comments for their rejecting a submission.
Examples would include selections like: "too many
grammatical errors", "unclear wording", "broken
links", "not interesting", "obscene or objectionable
content", and "other" with an area for a customized
I think adding this to the system would give /. users
like myself a means of receiving more feedback than a
simple (rejected), and from at least one /. editor I
hear it would give them a break in regards to the
amount of emails they send out to people who ask "why
was my story rejected?"
