I noticed that this "This is a good article, submit for review/geekgold/etc" checkbox when posting is cleared when you hit the preview button.

I also have a sneaking suspicion that even though it appeares cleared, the article is still submitted for GeekGold review! (but I can't test this without annoying the moderators)

Sometimes I think too many people check that box...

Possibly. On the other hand, guidelines on when to do so are pretty thin on the ground, neh?

My understanding is that Moderation review is automatic for REVIEWs and SESSION REPORTs. It becomes optional for submitting to other forums, thus allowing you to make a casual comment without passing Moderation yet alternatively offering the chance at GG for truly timeless and cogent commentary.

Heh. This makes perfect sense apart from the interface which shows it as an optional box (not even starting out checked by default). Perhaps time for a different shade of bug report.
