I had just added a new company then realised that I had forgotten to add a note asking the admin to add an alternative name.

I went to the pending list and selected the Revise option. This brought up a field to add an admin comment. Firstly is this correct, or should it bring up the whole entry to be edited?

I added the note to the admin requesting the alt name to be added. However when I submitted the form, I got an error message:

Quote:
Error: No Itemdata for validation


In this case I'll wait for the entry to be accepted then add it as a correction, but the revise system doesn't appear to be working in this case.

on the pending company link there is no [i]alternate name[/b] field

when I add an alternate name to a pending company entry
I click the web page link
I don't know if users have that link when they go to edit their pending submissions

I used a sock puppet account
I could only edit what appears on the submission screen

... I would think this is a good safety feature thumbsup

I was able to use the edit feature to add a note to my submission

... Steve, I don't see a note on any of your pending company submissions

Sorry that's not quite what I meant.

I agree - on the Company creation screen, there is no field to add an alt name. When I want an alt name added, I usually make a request in the notes to admin field when entering the company.

In this case, when I realised I had forgotten to add the request for an alt name as an admin note, I went to the pending companies list and clicked on Revise.

None of the normal fields for a company entry came up, only the field for an admin comment.

When entering the comment and clicking submit - I got the error message above.

The company was GTI Software, which you have now approved.

For the record, I was going to ask for an alt name of G.T.I Software (note the two full stops), as they often use this format in their in-game credits.

I just approved your correction to add the alternate name

I did my sock puppet test with a RPGG submission
I will have to try it with a VGG submission
and see if I can recreate what you had happen
