It would be awesome if moderators had their own control panels, where they can view qued posts, or members currently suspended or accounts waiting for activation, etc. I realize that we can just add them as admin and limit their power, but thing is that when you have mods installed that add more things, you cant limit them. Plus, they can peek at some other things as well. So, with a moderator control panel that is basically a downsized admin control panel, it would be simpler. Now we would be able to set some moderators as semi admin, and others as simple mods. This also helps security, if an account is hijacked they cant get into the admin panel, merely the moderator cp.Good idea?
I would like to see this.It could be similar to the Admin CP but for Moderators.It'd be nice to be able to Globally View Queued Posts and Topics, as well as manage Announcements, Moderators Note would be good and even maybe some sort of Moderator Live Chat built in?
There was one - It was removed in 2.0 ;)Everything can now be done in-line

Yes, I would like to see a modCP too. :thumbsup: Some of my moderators complained that it doesn't feel like a moderator without a separate control panel.
The Mod CP was supplanted in favor of inline moderation.
You can't do some things which would be nice, like viewing a Global List of Queued Posts/Topics.
We already have a small moderator center, in the bottom of My Controls, so why shouldn't they expand it.If a Moderator Center was to come, something like Luke's Report Center within it would also be great. I can see great potential.
Yeah, if it handled reports, then I could see need for a mod cp - otherwise, it's not really needed.Is there a reason why we don't have a report center? Other than just it hasn't been done yet.
The inline moderation in place right now is better than a Moderator Control Panel. Also, I do believe Luke's Report Center should be integrated in with IP.Board in 3.0 as we do need something like that (and it would be nice to have it integrated into IP.Board).
I don't believe there is a need for a chat staff function - that is what Personal Topics (as described on Matt's Blog) will take care of in 3.0.
I suppose Personal Topics would take care of it. But I still think the Mod CP would be good providing it actually had useful features in.
The thing is, the report center has been suggested many times, normally IPS have a reason for not adding in a feature
Weren't they going to include Luke's Report Center before he got laid off by IPS? Or am I imagining things :PAnyway, I think it would be nice to see a Report Center in IPB 3, maybe thats why it has not been added, because they are planning it for IPB 3?
Sure, the Mod CP had some uses, but inline moderation did nearly everything the same, and is just more convenient. I don't think IPS should regress and bring it back, but rather, continue to improve upon inline moderation. ;)
They should atleast add a 'View all Queued Items' in the Moderator Tools then.
Basically everyone has stated that everything that would potentially be located in this "moderator cp" is already possible in a round-about way. But the thing is, I stated that having a separate control panel for mods only, while still keeping the "in-line" admin thing would be quite beneficial.You see, let me make a list of things that a moderator could look forward to in an MCP:Separate login PanelExpanded Quick ClicksLast 5 moderator actionsLast 5 moderator cp login attemptslast 5 warnslast 5 banned memberspm all memberspm all moderatorsmoderator notesannouncement from adminmini componets - "enable for moderator" <-- in acpmessage/alert to admin visible on admin panelquick banquick suspend"watch user"manage atachmentsAll of this would be separated from the admin, adding more organization and giving the moderators a feel of responsibility at the same time. While I was think about this, it could easily be made into a mod. I'd say about 4 new database tables, and a copy of the admin html files, but edited.Hopefully that puts things into perspective for you guys.

You see, let me make a list of things that a moderator could look forward to in an MCP:
Separate login Panel
Expanded Quick Clicks
Last 5 moderator actions
Last 5 moderator cp login attempts
last 5 warns
last 5 banned members
pm all members
pm all moderators
announcement from admin
- "enable for moderator" <-- in acp
message/alert to admin visible on admin panel

Moderators can do that already. At least on my board they can. (view all the logs that is)
I personally regard Mod Logs as Admin Things, because the Admins should be watching over the Mods.
Its helped me a few times, where mods where able to see what other mod did something in the past, to help with an argument. Also iv noticed that most just look at the actions count, and its turned into somewhat of a competition.
No no, your taking it out of context. It makes them want to get on the site, stay longer, and do what needs to be done before the other.But, thats not the point, this could probably be disabled, or set for one some groups.
