If one Moderator/Owner currently starts to moderate a message, are all other Moderators/Owner prevented from doing so?
If more than one Moderator/Owner currently is moderating at the same time, does who ever finishes first prevail?
Although the slim likelihood of both the Sender and a Moderator/Owner would be interacting with a Pending Message at the same time might be greater than two (or more) Moderators/Owners doing so, there currently seems to be little or no problem. I suspect that would continue to be the case.
If there currently is a 'lock' that prevents more than one Moderator/Owner from interacting with a Pending Message, could it not also be used to prevent any second party (whether Sender or Moderator/Owner) from doing so.
That being said, such a 'coincidence' seems too rare to be worried about.
If it is such a worry, Senders should think more about what they post before sending...
Currently Claim only prevents other Moderators or Owners from moderating a Claimed message (or approving/rejecting a Claimed subscription request) by email.
All Moderators (with appropriate privileges) and Owners can alway moderate/approve via the web.
I agree that "fairly massive changes" don't seem worthwhile to change the Claim feature.
Otherwise the suggestion is to use existing structures in more places.
The same way a Moderator/Owner can Forward a Message Approval Require email notification to Reject a Pending Message,
a Sender should be able to Forward their Your Message Requires Approval email notification to Delete the Pending Message.
I agree with the original poster's notion, but it is not a pressing concern of mine.
It does seem that the current way Groups.io functions in a 'parallel manner' for Moderators/Owners, it could also for Senders.
I wouldn't argue against this improvement because it might prevent whoever acted first from determining the outcome...
