Private Withholds

An Idea

As of right now, if someone has the url for a page, they can get to it even if it's withheld, and anyone can post on the withhold page. I feel as if there are two things that need to be changed with this.

    Firstly, if it's at all possible, the "add post" button should be removed from the withhold page. There's no point in having it as there's no notification sent to the game manager (or higher) that withheld the submission, sometimes causing a multiple month delay in getting the submission unwithheld.

    Second, I feel the withhold page should not be accessible to anyone but the submission owner. I've noticed a few situations where third parties will chime in unnecessarily and exacerbate the situation, making it worse than it needed to be.

To anyone that reads this, getting a submission withheld is not a personal attack. We gain absolutely nothing by withholding your content. Content is withheld because it breaks the rules. All we're asking is for you to adjust the submission to abide by them.

    Good idea - this has been implemented, along with some visual tweaks to the Unwithhold page.

    Yes, I will definitely agree with this idea. The withhold page will be only accessible by the owner, withholder and site staff. Plus the add post button should be removed as well from there.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this idea. Any withhold page should only be accessible to site staff, and the submitter whose content got withheld.

    What about owner, withholder, and studio leader if it's a studio submission..? :)

    Maybe add an option for the owners to mark their submission as "awaiting for evaluation", so that the withholder can get notified when that happens.
