Reason for Moderatoraction in Log and add reason for edit to Post

I have a small suggestions. I think, by means of transparency it would be much appreciated not only to see the changes  the admins und moderators have made on a post in the moderator log - but rather a short explanation for their deletions/edits of a post.

Additionally it would be nice as a core feature that a Moderator/Admin can add a public reason to a edited Post (like the outdated mod "reason for edit") and finally in this way that the post is no longer editeble by the user after the mod/admin-edit.

That's actually a good idea that will help a lot of users :)

If I may add to this, it maybe also is a nice idea to have the users informed when a post of theirs is deleted with the reason why (e.g. in a PM).

well, hmmm....

the moderation center DOES have a spot for comments to the items flagged for moderation...   So, the first part already exists, it's just a matter of training your mods to use it.

The second part is available as a mod.

I agree that it would probably be useful as a core feature... but in the mean time you can make due. :)

Although locking the post from further edits is something that it does not do....   and would be a moderately difficult thing to implement, since the SMF system does not currently handle "can't edit and individual post". It's either all posts can not be edited or all posts can be edited.

Yoshi,
that also appears to be a mod. :)

Oh, thanks, I noticed it a while ago.

Seems all of your features are already available somehow :)

It shouldn't be too difficult to implement honestly: SMF already knows if the post has been edited by someone that is not the owner (that information is stored in the posts table), so it would just be a matter of "check the permissions"...more or less. :P
Probably a nice mod though.


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Limited (and to be improved) logging of reason of editing is now in the core, and I don't think it would be infeasible to log that into the moderation log if the person making the edit is not the original post's author.

In fact, that's all you really need to do: identify whether the person making the edit is the author. Trouble is, the way it stores it currently only tracks the *name* of the editor, not the id of the editor as well, so if you get into the realms of changing display name it can throw that all off.
