If you do not have participation rights in a debate you will not be able to directly create claims. However, if you follow the same steps as for Creating a Claim, you will be able to suggest a claim which can be accepted by any discussion Admin. Until a suggested claim is accepted it is only visible to you and discussion Admins.
Once you’ve suggested a claim, you can add additional suggestions under that claim - both Pros and Cons. You can also move your suggestion to another location, if you later realise there’s somewhere it would fit better. To do so, click the ‘Move’ button located just below your claim. The claim will appear in your clipboard at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen (see: Moving/Linking a Claim).
If you decide you no longer wish to suggest a claim after you have submitted it, click the ‘Archive’ button to archive it. Archived claims will not appear as notifications for discussion admins to review, however they can still be edited or moved. Archived claims can be unarchived by clicking the “My Suggested Claims” tab from the Discussion Menu, checking “Show archived suggestions”, selecting the appropriate claim and clicking ‘Unarchive’.
When responding to suggestions, Admins can either accept them, or comment to discuss them with you and/or other Admins - for example, to collaboratively fix an issue before accepting the claim.
When your suggested claim is accepted or an Admin has replied, you will receive a notification. Until your suggestion is accepted, you can edit it (see: Editing a Claim), comment on it (see: Commenting on a Claim), or archive it.
You are able to suggest claims, comments, or submit participation requests to a combined total of 10 pending suggestions or requests per day. For more information, see Understanding Suggestion Limits.
