  • Cc greiner wspee saroyanm added
  • Keywords goodfirstbug content added
  • Owner ire deleted
  • Priority changed from P2 to P3
  • Please do not assign tickets
  • Please add wspee to CC on websites module tickets
  • I think this is P3 because neither teams have capacity to onbeard someone ATM?
  • I'm skeptical about "content review" because of the emphasis mistake at the bottom (we agreed not to add this to our job descriptions) and I don't think that Thomas has reviewed and approved this content

Did our copywriters see it? Not sure what the policy here is but I would say it's worth to copywrite jobads?

You seem to have put your comment in the review url field. I assumed this was an accident and have removed them from the review url field.
