Report and then what?

Hello all! So I couldn't figure what happens after you report a mistake in a sentence. Do the moderaters get to read it? I really don't know, and I would like to. Thanks very much!

The course contributors read it. Eventually, if your suggestion is accepted, you'll get an email saying thank you. They have tens of thousands of reports, so it will take a while before you hear anything.

I read that only the first user, who has reported the corrected answer, gets an auto-reply.

Of course, this is bulls..., if the same suggestion by other users get all auto-deleted in the Incubator (will it?).

There should have been a 2nd auto-answer like "your report / suggestion / alternative" has already been report by another user....but this is an auto-msg that it was accepted by the system.

How shall the other learners ever know if their report has been handled?

As anomalousjack has already pointed out, old / incorrect sentence reports are often NOT fixed, even after >1 years, like 2,3 or 4 years.

If you click on a discussion you can clearly see that when multiple users wrote, what (or that) they have reported, or the course / forum moderator has suggested to report the alternative answer.

I think you'll be interested in reading this post about the numbers of replies to reports :)
