I am looking at running a few experiments with my members, particularly as some can be quite anti-authority when it comes to moderators.
What I want to do is setup a forum where they can all discuss and police it themselves. Obviously I will still have the right to close down anything that is against the law etc. However I want all the members who have x amount of posts to be able to access that forum, and they can delete (remove from view) and revive everyone elses threads (not permanently delete)
I would also like to add a few features as well to things like locking a post for replies for x amount of time and I am still thinking of other unlockable features as well.
Is there any little tool that already does this or does anyone also have any other suggestions for something like that?
