You mentioned in one of your earlier emails on this (21 Oct 2004) about being able to email the editorial board. I think that this may be the best way to go at this point of Board members voting, as it has not come up elsewhere. We are intending to add an Editorial Board/Review Board section for entering users into this class, and listing them on About page. This group would have an email function, as do all groups. We are also considering adding the ability to add email templates that can be associated with groups of users, such as a Board. The Board members would need to be enrolled as editors to have Table of Content and Article preview access, and they would then respond to the Editor by email with their votes or abstensions, who would then make the decision about inclusion and order, prior to publishing. How's that sound?
