You mean a ACP config option about locking (or not) the post when it is reported?
Well... some1 could make an RFC about that. Anyway, there's already a mod made for that same thing.
Why would it be a separate RFC? Thats what this RFC is about... And I was making a suggestion for the front-end implementation of it.
Seeing as the general consensus (so far) in the topic seems to be to lock posts, you pointed out when locking the post isn't a good idea and I made an additional suggestion on how that could be fixed. Thats what RFC's are for.
The reason I think it could be better in the core (and not as a MOD) is because I think its useful for the majority of board users, not a minority. But the configurable option would give board admin a choice if they are, for example, a support board to disable this behaviour without code edits. The only cons against a config option is the fact we are adding another config option and the fact that it would now require changes to the database (adding a config record) and a query on the page.
I may do that among the rest of the RFC I was intending to do.
But, because I didn't plan that, I'll need to know where that option should appear. Any suggestions?
I'll finish the RFC as stated in the OP post first, anyway. If it keeps going at the speed it is going until now, it'll be ready by Friday .
