phpBB Has a report post feature like most other forums. When a report is made, that report is accessible through the MCP.
If the moderators want to discuss the report itself, the only way to do it (according to my research) is by going to a private forum and create a topic there with a link to the report (or something like that).
Create something like a topic that allows moderators of the forum from where the report was made can discuss the report itself.
A way to solve this
In the report view page, for instance:
Code: Select all
Note: this also applies to PM reports.
I was thinking it would be a good idea to do a simple text base system with no BBCode, no HTML, no emoticons, etc... The objective here is to discuss the report itself, decide what should be done to the infractor without the need of opening a topic about a report and then use a link.
All posts would be simple text 2 colon table (in aspect) with the username on the left and the text on the right. Under it the moderators would have a textarea to write the commentary and a submit button (more features perhaps?). As usual , this would also contain a subscription system that works like the subscription in topics that allows moderators to be informed when there's a new comment to that specific post.
- No need to open a new topic when a discussion for a report is needed
- No need to go back and forth between the report and the topic when there's a discussion about it.
- Making a discussion for every single report may be a bit space consuming if it turns out not to have a discussion after all.
- The moderators themselves could try to abuse this feature.
