This add-on introduces potentially breaking changes to moderation permissions. Please review usergroup permissions carefully!

A Collection of improvements to XF's reporting system. Fully phrased.

On install, all existing warnings are copied into a new warning change tracking log and associated with reports. This process occurs as a background task, and is non-disruptive.

Note; when reports are sent to a forum, the warning<->report links can not be created!

Feature list:
  • Improve performance of Report Center by reducing stock XenForo N+1 query behaviour
  • Permission based access to the report center:
    • Default permissions set for groups (global/content) for groups with warn or edit basic profile permissions.
    • New Permissions:

Big thanks for this add-on. We really appreciate the improved functionality of the reports center. This is a must have add-on for our site and probably yours (unless you do no moderation).
We commissioned Xon for many of these features, and he continues to add more functionality. At this point our forums could not function without it. It is a substantial improvement for managing reports. From delegating more granular permissions to significantly improved logging in various forms it has greatly improved moderation efficiency and accuracy.
Xon continues to extend XF in practical ways that make you wonder why he's not hired. This addon is no exception. One thing that has always lacked in the reports is better searching. It's baffling to me you can only search by report username. So many more parameters are useful for searching for. Thanks!!
A must-have add-on that improves on various essentials in which Xenforo lacks. The ability to search through reports and auto-create report threads is a big plus on our forums.

The support and response time on questions/errors/fixes are outstanding.
Would definitely recommend anyone to use this add-on (or any of Xon's improvements add-ons).
