"Ability for a moderator to leave a reason when they edit a post&


Guest Jorim

Recommended Posts

The following features have been added or enhanced since the first 2.2 Announcement:

  • Multiple bugs fixed that were reported from Public Beta 1
  • First version of 2.1.7 to 2.2 upgrade routine is included.
  • Ability for a moderator to leave a reason when they edit a post.
  • Administrator can leave a note for other admins when banning a member.
  • Redesigned Quick Edit and Fast Reply editors
Why isn't that function available for everyone? When my users edit there posts they (most of the time) add an extra line with "Edit: The reason" just to clarify the changes. It would be great if there's always an extra field to add the reason and with an option in the admincp to make it oblige (or not).

I don't think I'm the only one who likes such a small change! :)

Offcourse, but an extra line inside the line "This post has been edited by Jorim: zo 10 september 2006 om 16:15 uur" like "This post has been edited by Jorim: zo 10 september 2006 om 16:15 uur. Reason: Because I'd like to edit" would be very straightforward. There will be a mod that will fix it, but why don't include it? It's very annoying that people change there post en you won't know of they just fix some typo's or change there hole story!

The edited part is part of the post so it should be in the posting area. The sig part should always be te last part of the post. So I don't agree

I agree with you. :thumbsup: I happen to think the reason for editing looks great in its own seperate box, as it is now.

The reason that it's not available for members is to prevent member's from deleting the reason.

(And please don't ask for an option to make it so that either members or moderators can only edit the line).

If a member makes a post edit, they can put it in the actual post.

...And so can moderators. Why can't it be a user group setting? That way, you can only assign it to "promoted" user groups if you want, those that can be trusted.

Why not disallow them to remove reason after they write it? :thumbsup:

You've got a point with that, but why don't separate the box? I guess that the editing reason from a moderator won't be displayed in the reason line (or maybe it will, but you can separate it from the user-reason).

So don't make this moderator function for users, but give users the same function!

I don't see why members need to show the reason for editing, its their post they know why they edited it. No other members really need to know why and if they do need to know for whatever reason they can put it in their post.

Moderators however edit someone elses post, which can confuse the user and with a reason for editing it sorts that out.
