Edit Multiple: Remove option for removing co-creators

Description

  1. Log in

  2. Post a work with another user as co-creator

  3. Go to the mass edit page

  4. Select said work for editing

On the mass edit page, there's a list of Current Authors and checkboxes you can check to remove. It's broken and we want to get rid of this ability.

To allow you to change which of your own pseuds you're using on the work, we'll need to add a Creator/Pseud(s) multiselect like the one that appears on the edit page for single works.

If this is done before we change the co-creator system to use invitations, deselecting all pseuds in the multiselect should remove you as co-creator. If it's done after, we might need to do something different to allow you to remove yourself.

As sarken, I went to the mass edit page and selected 1 work where I had the co-creator nines and 1 work where I had invited nivens as the co-creator. There wasn’t an option to remove the co-creators:

I agree with Nary that it would be nice to display the co-creators somewhere, e.g. in the list of works at the top of the page (and, tbh, I’d like to see it on the page where you select the works you want to edit), but I think that’s probably an issue for another time (while it did previously display co-creators on the form, it wasn’t exactly useful enough that this is a massive downgrade… I mean, it didn’t even tell you which co-creators went with which works). (I also think it’s weird that we have creator stuff and collection stuff lumped together in the form field, but again: a problem for future us.)

Seconding this. The format would be similar to the list of co-creators next to an item on the subscriptions page, and I'd like to see that in both places (works to edit, works being edited).


When editing multiple works with co-creators that are not my own pseuds, the form shows a multi-select to add or remove my own pseuds, a checkbox to remove myself entirely, and a field to add new co-creators. There are no options to remove other co-creators. Looks good.

Should we create an issue to add that information, so the idea doesn’t get lost? Do we need some kind of design discussion or is the consensus here sufficient? (I’d say it is.)

Yes to issue, yes to consensus here.

I made for displaying co-creators. This issue is ready.
