Is IPB planing on adding the feature that moderators can only softdelete topics and Administrators harddelete topics?
This is very important to us since we have had Moderators before who went insane by deleting topics they weren't supposed to delete.
Thanks for answering.
IPB already has that feature, but it's called something else (invisible/approve).
which version of IPB? I know of the trash can?
That would be the trashcan.
No, this is different. vbulletin uses this feature also. It would allow moderators to delete a thread, and enter a reason, and the post/thread author will be able to see the reason why the thread was deleted. It is different from moderated/invisable.
The post/thread author generally can't see it, just groups that are set to see it, that's usually just mods and admins, but I've seen forums that let everyone see the notices from soft deleted posts.
In my opinion it would be good if we could make it so that the author of the post can see the deletion reason for his thread/post.
I cam up with an idea..
Softdelete = Move's to TrashCan
Harddelete = Delete pernamently
Like if you get bot spammed, like pornography for instance.
Personally I'm a big fan of making soft delete show a public note like "this post has been deleted" possibly along with a reason.
I also started a topic about this a while back...
