@Fergus:

Would it be possible for us to order the pages listing Members-Only and WIP submissions by the date of the last action taken on them (creation, revision, comment, etc.) by the author? By pushing pages with the most recent actions to the top, it would greatly improve quality-of-life for the Editors who focus on reviewing submissions, as it would allow us to more easily see which pages the authors genuinely want reviewed, and which ones are just sitting on the site doing nothing (much of the stuff from 2022 and prior, and especially from 2021 and prior, does this).

My gut feeling is that it shouldn't be too hard, but I am not yet fluent enough in SQL to do this by myself yet.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
