Full description of the idea
Adding an area near the bottom of the page where there is already a drop down "mass action" menu to have check boxes allowing users to select all comments or deselect all comments, so that they may be screened or unscreened.
- A quick and easy way to select all comments in order to put forth a mass action on them, such as unscreening.
- A quick and easy way to deselect all comments.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- Additional coding would need to be added to the comments page.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- There is already a mass action menu on the comments page, by adding just two check boxes with the option to select all, or deselect in the same area it would save users, particularly community maintainers, a great deal of time unscreening comments. The check boxes and simple text are small enough to be included on the same line, so it wouldn't take up very much extra space visually, all that would be needed is the proper coding to accomplish this.
