Topic Starter can delete posts

Post by ob1 on April 4th 2012, 9:21 pm

The biggest complaint I have on my forum is "thread hijacking." It would be awesome if I could allow topic starters to moderate a thread they start. But I don't see that option currently available....unless I'm missing it.

This option can be highly misused. Its a complete No No for me.

Please add a poll so members can vote.

I know exactly what you mean Sanket. I can see that this would be a problem on some forums. Especially more public forums. But for tight nit members only forums like mine, it would be a great option. Just an option for administrators to use if they wish. We can all then choose for ourselves.

My vote: No.

The reason is that this would cause issues with staff's ability to moderate the forum, especially if a conflict develops between the topic starter and another member.

If your forums having trouble wouldn't it be better to just assign more moderators to deal with the posts?

Giving delete options to everyone just leads more chaos. Let alone the issues where topic creators could delete the posts of anyone they didn't like/didn't agree with for no reason at all.

I don't know... moderators are around for a reason, and if they can't find bad posts on threads soon enough, it's time for better mods.
