Require users to agree with each instruction before adding link
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

This is a suggestion, which I would be happy to discuss the merits of. Concern was raised (T179325) that the tool encourages users to act too quickly, not giving the necessary care and time to verifying that the suggested paper is copyright compliant.

I would suggest adding a small checkbox to each of the 4 guidance instructions, requiring users to verify that they have checked each step for a given link. This doesn't slow the process down too much, but does require users to give some thought to the instructions, rather than simply trusting that they have read them.

There is no point forcing users to click the same checkboxes hundreds of times.
