    Default Proposition

    Hello Areopagus Mods
    The suggestion of a proposal to consider:
    Inserting the option of editing posts - the possibility of removing post by the author.
    In my opinion, worthy of consideration
    Regards wojpen

    Hi wojpen,
    every poster can edit or delete his own post content and subsequently the Staff would delete every empty posts.
    Members have report button for that too.
    What if a poster would delete the starting post of a thread? The whole thread would be deleted. Not good for other posters.

    I think some moderation tools have to be restricted to the forum's Staff members only, because they are experienced in these stuffs and can delete and in case merge or move posts without causing damages and additionally can edit posts numbers references or links contained in a thread when a post is erased.
    Staff deletes only nonsense and pure thanking posts, all other obsolete posts go to trash and are not deleted.

    Doesn't "unwanted" posts get moved to a different thread and not permanently removed?

    They simply go to trash. Moving posts to trash doesn't affect Users' post count, old broken links posts for example were good posts they don't deserve deletion and good posters post count downside.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Deleted posts (thanking, spam, useless posts) are soft deleted and remain soft deleted (invisible to forum members), just in case, after a while they are physically deleted and this affects Users' post count.
    Some posts are physically deleted upon User's request. Some posts coming from normal Users hidden sections (Administration sections for example, Master Zone) go deleted.
    Only the Admins can physically delete posts, Moderators can soft delete only.
