Topic Moderation - Adding the Creator in the Equation

Post by Ace12 on July 8th 2009, 4:38 am

Like the title? xD
Well, hello all, I guess this would be my second topic xd

Well it seems one of my admins had brought up a suggestion to allow the creator of a topic to moderate it. I felt it was a good idea, and thought it might be put into Forumotion. I didn't see this in my brief "Refused Suggestions" topic browsing, so I thought I should put it up here.

These are her exact words:
Grace wrote:I think members should have control over their own topics, be able to delete any posts, save us Admins the trouble of having to do so. xP

Some of you may have already read this on KC, and there will be a few problems...

1. Members can be immature, and may delete posts they don't like or ones that don't agree with them. xP

2. What's the point of reporting them then?

Solutions...

1. There would be some restrictions, like you must be in a rank to have this privilege, and if we see one sign of abuse of this power, then it will be immediately taken away from that user.

2. Members can still report posts, if the topic creator isn't on at the time, or, they can take a screen shot of misuse of power in topic moderation, and PM it to an Admin.

Well...there you have it Very Happy

I can see members abusing this feature. They could edit somebody's comment, and not put an editing reson, then that person would get banned.

Actually, I kind of forgot to mention that there would be no editing feature, only a post deletion feature. Sorry >_>

Oh, well I don't see much point of it. Members could just use the little "report post" button, and ask for it to be deleted.

Wouldn't that show up in the moderator actions though?

Possibly, but the fact that they techinically aren't ranked as moderators could prevent their actions from being logged.

Voted no. Might be a good idea but in some way, if this feature was added then everyone would be like mods.
