Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

I still think it should be made a core part of PHPBB.

As it is being able to merely delete and lock one's own threads seems a bit incomplete.

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

A post revision system to defend against abuse of topic curator, I could get behind that.

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

whoops, sorry about that. Clicked the wrong checkbox. :oops: Anyway, good points have been made all around. I agree that soft deletion/edit logs would make this more attractive. Incidentally, however, this thread getting unlocked demonstrates exactly the sort of thing that can mitigate abuse of this...

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

I know of quite a few sites that will host phpbb forums, and most of them don't allow mods. And all of them are modded by the hosts, basing features in phpBB based on free forum hosts is an awful idea imo. I'm afraid you've misunderstood, I didn't say that I was suggesting this feature just because...

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

Which is why making them separate permissions is a good idea. I know of quite a few sites that will host phpbb forums, and most of them don't allow mods. However, giving this feature a test run as a mod might not be a bad idea. It would most likely go into the posting perms for forums, either under ...

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

That is also a good way to accomodate this.

As it is, it's a major tiebreaker between phpBB and smf.

Re: [Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

Perhaps, and in a substantial majority of cases, allowing users to moderate their own threads is unwise. However there are a few cases where it's appropriate. Roleplay forums could use it for example to allow GMs to moderate their own campaign threads. In most RP systems I know of the GM is pretty m...

Re: Subversion on Git

Happen to have gotten into a debate with my mud project admin over svn versus git, he'd probably get a kick out of that. :mrgreen:

[Suggestion] Delete/modify posts in own threads

A simple yet useful moderation option that allows a user to delete and / or modify (two seperate perms) someone else's posts in their own threads. Such an ability would come greatly in handy for a role-play board, for example, by letting a GM moderate his own threads. It's also a common feature on o...
