Nice debate. So, what's the verdict?
Hello dear LF,
The concrete actions coming from this council thread are shaping to be along these lines:
- Enable an open/public moderation log where every deletion is documented, so every person can bring any wrong removal to our attention easily.
- A sort of "staging area" where all deleted posts go, still keeping them in public sight for members.
The "hide post" idea from Sumit is a good one, we might try it to complement actions by non-moderators
Delete, Hide, Expel buttonsDelete
= For insulting posts.Hide
= For regular non-moderators to have a vote. +1 / -1 style. Readers have a setting to see the full thread with hidden messages open.Expel
= For off-topic/misplaced messages, so they aren't penalized with complete removal.
Let's allow some time (maybe one more week) so others can provide feedback and interact further.
