Trying to wrap my mind around the moderation end of things here...
So I got "Report" down... but it seems as if this is NOT a tool a mod should use themselves, only members.
I also tried rejecting a reported thread, but it didn't do anything but send an alert to me telling me it was rejected. It didn't delete it or anything?
I guess I still need my "Threads/Posts moved to Moderation Queue" private forum still up because there we can at least get the thread off the forum if need be to be discussed further. I hit "select post" and then clicked on "Unapprove Post" and then it said it was "awaiting moderation before displayed publicly." I then show a little "1" at the top left where it says "moderation" and then it gave me the option to "do nothing" "approve" "delete" -- So I deleted it, and it was gone.
So maybe there is no need for discussion on a thread that is obvious it needs edited, removed from public view, deleted, etc. So maybe I am overthinking my "Threads/Posts moved to Moderation Queue"??? I mean threads could always be MOVED to it if it was a bad one that was pulled from the forum but still be discussed by the team??
Years ago on my old forum would sometimes get into REALLY passionate feelings and heated topics that sometimes we would have to figure out keep it open? close it? edit some of it? remove some of posts but not entire thread? this sort of thing... so this is why I am trying to figure out the tools on XF so I can know how to tell my team the best approach on handling situations.
Also, I notice we have a "warning" section in the admin cp? But where oh where or HOW would one go about giving out these "warnings"????
