Unfortunately, this is true. As AMs and even just regular editors aware of these changes, I think the best option is to monitor our areas and if someone changes a classification, we can let them know about the changes. It's not perfect, but we'll likely catch the major editors and that will help.
Another option... My state isn't Michigan, so I can't see the Michigan top editor listing in the client, but maybe you or someone else can get a list of the main editors and PM them with either an explanation or a request to check this thread or something like that. Then we can try to notify the major editors in the state. It will at least help out. Any other ideas to help make people aware of the changes would be great. I think the major editors are the ones who are most likely to notice the changes.
It would be great to have a way to send a message to all Michigan editors, but I don't see that happening. Maybe we can at least send messages automatically to all AMs? I'd imagine the regional coordinators have access to the names of everyone who has AM rights in the state and can send a notification to at least the AMs. Then each AM can work to get the editors in their areas to read up on the changes. Anyhow, just throwing out ideas.
