Thread Soft Delete

Post by Richsballpythons on July 14th 2010, 10:00 pm

Ive noticed on the forums when you delete a thread is GONE. On other forums i Mod at when deleted by member or mod its soft deleted. Where we can undelete it if needed for legal issues and so on.

So my suggestion is rather make the thread permanently deleted, but make it soft deleted to be recovered later if needed.

Well move the thread to the garbage, don't give anyone else permissions to view that garbage/basket. Serves the same purpose.

Basket is basically a forum itself.
General>Categories and Forums
Click on Basket
Then change the permissions there.

Thats not really possible, since you give them moderator access.

What you can do is, ask your moderators that deleting posts on the forum is not allowed.

Then you can keep a check via the General>Security
Moderation tab.
