Change comment status

colors colours
The status of a comment indicates what should be done with it. Reach the form to change comment status by clicking the button showing the current status (e.g. 'new'). Only Editor(s) can do this.
The possible statuses are:
new
comment has yet to be reviewed
accepted
yes, the suggestion should be adopted
rejected
thank you, but we won't be taking up this suggestion
undecided
the comment has been reviewed but the editor isn't sure what to do and will revisit it later
optional
we'll make the change if formatting etc. allows
noted
the comment has been reviewed, no action is necessary
revised
we quite like the suggestion but want to make the change in another way (a new comment should be added to that effect)
 
The same colours are used in summarizing comments and in annotated PDF files.
