Ok, I prepare myself for getting stumped in the ground for practically posting a feature request in here (again!). :)

What I miss sometimes as a moderator is the possibility to use the mod control panel on search results. A simple case where this might apply to is an annoying user who crossspams and I have to go into every post in every forum he posted to delete them one by one. It would help a lot if it would be possible to have the modCP GUI on search results and just select all the posts by the user to eliminate them with one click. This could also improve the coming merge feature if one e.g. wants to merge posts out of threads from different forums it would be easy to just search for the terms of the posts have in common (which should be there if you want to merge them :)). A 3rd application that comes to mind is if you want to create a new forum and have to move all relevant posts into it. Much easier/faster via search and move.

I know this might need some heavy thinking but is it worth it? Discuss! 8)

To appease Paul I also posted this in the Feature Tracker. :)

Random fact: This is actually the first post where I used the 8) smiley ever.

grmbl, no feature requests here, grmbl

This sounds supiciously like a "Would x be useful?" topic I posted in the private teams forum @ http://www.phpbb.com" target="_blank a week or three ago ... ?

You mean this topic?

Yeah, I remember shamelessly binging this up while you only wanted to know if MD5 checksums of posts are useful for checking of duplicates. ;) How was the decision for that BTW?
