Dashboard for the discussion system
We want to make a dashboard for the discussion system to allow users easy access to a list of the latest comments, comment statistics and many more:
Similar dashboard with different content for the GTEGeneral Translation EditorA General Translation Editor (often referred to as GTE) is a person, who has global access to validate strings on all projects for a specific locale., PTEProject Translation EditorA Project Translation Editor (often referred to as PTE) is a person, who has access to validate strings on a specific project (for example BuddyPress, WooCommerce or Twenty Fourteen) for one specific locale. A project translation editor can approve strings that are added by translation contributors. Per project translation, editors are appointed by a general translation editor after a request by the project author or by the contributors themselves., CLPTECross-locale Project Translation EditorA Cross-Locale Project Translation Editor is an account owned by a plugin or theme author (or the authoring organization), which uses professional translators to localize their product. The cross-locale project translation editor can import/validate strings on a specific project for more than one locale. This role has the same capabilities as a Project Translation Editor over multiple locales instead of one. Cross-Locale Project Translation Editors need to meet a set of criteria before being appointed by General Translation Editors. and translators. It will display the last comments limited to language (GTE) or language & project (PTE) or project (CLPTE).
We will start with the GTE dashboard:
Overview of all comments in a language.
It should be visible if another GTE is already involved in a thread.
It should show the number of comments in the thread.
Reply inline? Maybe later, for now just a link to the right comment (with reply open?)
The new discussion system allows you to make comments around a translation. A validatorValidatorSee translation editor.

A validator can add comments to bulk rejections.
You can add comments to bulk rejections.
And can add comments to single strings, when she rejects, approves or sets as fuzzy the string.
To access the full discussion for this string, you have to click on the “contextual menu” and then you have to click on the “Discussion” link.

At the bottom, you can start a new conversation related with the string.
The system sends some email notifications. The notifications are opt-in. To receive it, you have to opt-in here.
These are the notifications the system sends:
The translator will receive a notification when a validator makes a bulk rejection or rejects, approves or sets as fuzzy a single string.
The developer receives a notification when someone asks something around a “typo in the English text” or request more context for the translation.
The GTE/PTE/CLPTE will receive a notification when someone replies to a notification she made before or when someone asks something related with her language and/or pluginPluginA plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.
