Hiding Posts

Post by Tilum on February 15th 2009, 7:31 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hello All,

On some forums that i am a member on, it is possible to hide a post. This would remove the name of the author and all of the message. This would make moderating easy as you wouldn't have to edit a post to say "Content Removed" All you would do is press a button to hide the post. Also, the post that you hid would not be uneditable to stop members editing moderation comments out and putting offensive content back in.



Example:
Lets say that a member posted a swear word, this swear word was "Boo", so a moderator came along and was like, OH he just posted "Boo" i'm going to have to hide that, so the moderator:

a) Inserted the [Hide] Tags. Members posted after this and then saw the swear word "Boo". Also, the member who posted "Boo" cam back from his 24hr ban and edited the post, removed the tags and put "Boo" back in.

b) Hid the post, all he had to do was hit one button. Members that posted after the moderators post didn't see anything, it was all fine. When the member came back from his 24hr ban, he went to edit his post to replace "Boo" and noticed that there wasn't an edit button! The word did not re appear.

That's a made up example, but can you remember when that disgusting member who came and posted all the graphic pictures of car crash victims? Skittles, who was the moderator at the the time, has to go through editing all of the pictures and replacing it with => Removed etc, all she would have had to have done was press Hide, and it would be gone!

As you can see, it is easier to hide the post, than delete it as this would cause confusion.
If you have any questions please post below.

Thanks for reading,
Tilum

I am on the fence. I can see the advantages but it seems like just a soft delete feature and really doesn't serve much more purpose than deleting a post in my opinion.

I'm an administrator for an author's official website.

The feature you are describing is essentially the same as we use. The options we have are essentially "Do Not Delete This Post"... "Soft Delete" (with a reason for deletion option)... and "Hard Delete".

Your Hidden feature is the same as our Soft Delete feature.

And I love it. I like it more than the images you showed though, which has a huge, black box in the middle of the thread.

Our feature flattens out the post so that it doesn't take up so much space but is still there.

I'm voting yes. This feature is a must have... completely removes any doubt for why a certain post is removed from view.
