There is currently no way to create an em dash in drupal.

I ran into an issue recently where an author wanted some soft emphasis in her essay changed to hard emphasis with em dashes. This was throughout most of the essay, and I had to copy and paste em dashes from Microsoft Word.

addition to author page

On the author pages, please change "EBR Essays by X" to "Essays by X."

Need for a "submitted" state

Currently, the first workflow state is "solicited." This allows editors to create a stub or placemarker for the eventual essay. The next state is "markup," where we would mark up an actual submission.

no need for "draft" state

Currently, an essay is marked up and then moved to "draft." It is unclear what tasks are performed at this state before it is moved to "under review." We agree that it might be that a thread editor wants to check for errors in markup before sending it out for review, but that was the only task we could agree on. Otherwise, the state seems redundant. Solution: eliminate draft, move all existing "draft" essays to "review." For the future, essays are saved as "under review" once markup is complete.

thread editors can't edit texts in their own thread

Hi, currently thread editors can't edit texts in their own thread. We'd like to make that possible. Thanks, Ryan

Secondary Thread Icons

In the past, secondary-threads had their icon display slightly apart from the the main icon. I might be missing it, but it looks like there is no visual representation of secondary threads on the new website. If that is the case, I think it would be nice to get something equivalent to the old website display on the new website.

Boarders Around Thread Icons

On the main page, some of the icons blend together. I like the new, simple look of the icons, but I was thinking that a thin (1px) black border around each might help to visually distinguish them from one another.

making blurbs invisible to peer reviewers/making reviews visible only to other editors

Ewan, I just tried to test this by creating a new user (RMB) to whom I assigned a "reviewer" status. However, even as "reviewer," this user cannot see any content but what is published, so they can't contribute "reviews" of any texts, even those in the Under Review stage. Before this is fixed, I can't really tell whether the problems below are fixed. Thx - Ryan Please test. Thx. Hi Ewan, Can you make blurbs invisible to peer reviewers, in addition to the author field?
