Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A check-box should be available to mods to allow them to do useful manual retagging (the type that is not possible to do automatically, like separate the volume tag into logical-drive and audio tags on SU) without flooding the front page.

The check-box should be associated with a text field or something that would hold the meta post that the mod is acting in accord with. This would generate a list on that post with all the posts that have been edited in accordance with the meta post.

This would accomplish three objectives:

  1. Not flood the front page when doing these types of edits
  2. Create an easy way for the edits relating to a meta post to be tracked
  3. Allow for some review over the process should a user want to look it over for some reason (I.e. a mod cannot do anything they want, and not have it show up anywhere. I don't anticipate this being a problem, but it can't hurt either)

Thoughts?

+1 Yes, I'd rather want a number next to review than a full page of edits when these are necessary; or some other way to link to this page, such that it gets viewed as much as /review or /tools but not more than that. As a side suggestion, it might be useful to give this out to 20k reputation users as well; as we don't want to burden the moderators alone and there are high reputation users up for this. For SO users: Please note that other sites don't have the interesting tab and thus show the questions ordered by answers and edit bumps... – Tom Wijsman Feb 16 '12 at 4:08

@Random Not a dupe as this is 1) mod only 2) tied to meta posts with a way for review. – soandos Feb 16 '12 at 8:15
