Option not to review article when adding maintenance tags
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

According to this old screenshot in the documentations, it was possible to not automaticly review articles when tagging them. I'd like that feature back please. (or at the very least documentation be updated)

(Screenshot from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Page_Curation/Help#/media/File:Curation_Toolbar_Add_TagsBlank_Aug_10_2012.png )

It was apparently removed in T41208: Marking something for deletion or adding maintenance tags should automatically review it
but it would be useful to have this feature back, because sometimes a reviewer will want to tag a page, but delegate the final analysis to some other reviewer.

The only current method, is to tag the article (which automatically marks it as reviewed) and then manually un-review it. The drawback is that the article creator will get 2 notifications then. one for the review, and one for the unreview...

I'm leaning towards decline on this. The option was originally removed in 2012 in order to streamline the reviewing process and match the behavior of Twinkle. I'm not convinced there is enough of a need for it to justify re-adding it, especially since the interface is already quite complicated as it is.

@kaldari Twinkle now includes a checkbox to disable patrolling of the article. There are many situations in which it is inappropriate to mark a page as patrolled when you are tagging it.

There are many situations in which it is inappropriate to mark a page as patrolled when you are tagging it.

@TheDragonFire - Can you elaborate on that? When we were originally developing the Page Curation tools we were asked to make tagging automatically mark the article as reviewed (to save the reviewers a step). In what situations would a reviewer tag an article, but not want to mark it as reviewed?

Moving this to 'Triaged but future' because many Page Curation tasks are currently part of the 2019 Wishlist Survey

Perhaps the default case should be not marking it as patrolled? I.e., rather than on option not to patrol the page, we simply change it so that, rather than automatically patrolling the page, we don't patrol the page at all unless the "mark this page as patrolled" option in activated

as noted in T148353#3451322, Twinkle has this option now. If the default is to mark it as patrolled (T148353#5356026), then it isn't much of a throttle on the reviewing process, but allows users to add tags without needing to review the entire article
