Distributed Moderation

edited July 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Just an idea for a extension from a board that I frequent, They run a custom piece of board software where all edits, deletions, thread moves and the like have to be approved by 2-3 moderators. ( For example if you want to edit a post, you edit the post and then stick the reason for the edit in a box below, it then needs to approval of two moderators. Even the admin can't do edits and deletion without going through the same process. It needs a decent ammount of moderators to work, but it seems to wotk rather well on Barbelith and avoids acusations of dictorships and the problems of a moderator/admin having a bad day or not having a good realtionship with a particular poster. Just an idea if someone wants to run with it as It would be cool if more pieces of board software offered this option.

    Sounds like a major pain in the ass for a private board, but might be useful on a community level.
