Add count/number of undealt moderative queue to MCP link

Post by DocSommer »

I'm running a board with very less need for moderative actions. Therefore me and the other moderators/admins doesn't look in to the MCP very often leading to having some open cases without noone paying attention for a week or so every once in a while. Therefore it would be nice to realize some kind of notification feature. The first thing I was thinking about is simply to display the sum of events of moderative queue/reported messages (btw: shouldn't be the reported message beeing a part of the moderative queue tab??) next to the MCP link, like:
Moderator Control Panel (5)
....that's kind of inspired by the unread PM count display :D

I also thought about other possibilities, like mail/PM notifications but these are probably less effective for boards with mod-teams since MOD1 might look into cases that already have been solved by MOD2. All in all a real-time count display of unsolved moderative cases seems the most practicable solution to me.

Since the average phpBB community is probably a small/mid size forum I can imagine that this might be useful in many scenarios.

When notifications are merged into 3.1 it will be possible (you may configure it for yourself) to receive notifications when something is reported/added to the moderation queue.

But this may be useful as well for larger boards if moderators do not want to receive all of these notifications.

Yeah that's basicly what I'm looking for. This mod seem to work but doesn't appear maintained/validated for the recent phpBB version.

Still I think it'll be great and useful to have such kind of feature "on board" by default

MODs do not get revalidated for each version, but that does not mean it will not work. If you are unsure, you may ask in that MOD's discussion/support area.
I do custom MODs. PM for a quote!

Yeah I have my forum running as a clone via localhost for testing/messing around so that's no problem - still this feature smells like common sense :D

Yeah it's a good one. This should be included in 3.1 as default. Not sure if it is already...
