Quote from: JessyKa on June 29, 2022, 04:24:47 PMHello Community,I could not find an according question.When deleting posts as an admin there is no way of informing the author about the deletion and the reasons.This often leads to trouble when users think, theirs posts are deleted when still there but can not be found at the place the users think they should be. Or users are angry when posts are deleted and they don't know why.In another forum (not based on smf) they have a transparent solution for this: every moderator action (deletion, changes and moving of posts) are documented. When a post is deleted the user is informed by pm about it. He then gets a copy of the original post and also the "reason why" and who deleted it. Therefore he has a possibility of discussing the action. Might not be wanted by any admin but at least it is transparent and reliable.I wonder if there is a modification available acting similar? That is: informing users when there is a change done by moderator/admin.Thanks!
