moderation stuff...

I didn't know much about the existing moderation stuff in DjangoBB…

phpBB has many stuff around this. IMHO too many

I noticed on python-forum.de this:
* Users report a post
* One moderator didn't what to decide alone what's todo
* the moderator creates a new post in a “internal” forum (readable only for all moderators/admins)
* moderators/admins discuss and do something (delete post/user or ban etc…)

IMHO it would be nice if a “user abuse report” would not saved somewhere separated. A report creates a post in the “internal” forum and all moderators get a mail.

The goals are:
* this solution used many existing parts and needs not many additional code.
* The moderators can easy discuss a report (even if it's only one “have i done” reply)

Missing things are small:
* a report view thats creates the abuse post
* links would be added to the post: link to the abused post, the used how created it etc.
* subscribe to forum feature (so that's all moderator would get a mail)




Some of my Projects:
* Migrate phpBB to DjangoBB with django-phpBB3
* DjangoBB github repro and information about my changes
* PyLucid CMS written in Django: http://www.pylucid.org/

If i understand it, than this “moderation query” is a additional section. That's exactly what I do not want, because it needs another template/source code and add another section.

My idea is to use the features that are there… (The only missing thing is the “subscribe this forum” feature)

I can see the benefits of this approach, but I think it might add too much complexity.
I co-manage a forum with about 800 contribs / week, and a team of 6 mods. At this scale, we often discuss issues in the reports queue itself. i.e.

Moderator1:
So and so did such and such, any tips on how to handle it?
Moderator2:
@Moderator1: I think he should get a warning.

If something is too complicated for the queue, then we'll make a thread about it. But this is pretty rare, so I'm not sure it would be beneficial to create a new thread automatically based on a reports content.

However, I still think there needs to be a reports queue page *outside* of the admin area, for security reasons. The admin pages should not be accessible to most moderators. It seems best to prevent access to the entire directory - not just certain parts of it.

Then you think a “moderation queue” is something like a “minimized forum thread” ? Something like a mini twitter… Every moderator see it and can add a new reply to it.

For me it looks like that implementing this takes more effort than to say we used a normal forum that only moderators can see. e.g. We didn't need a separate “moderation queue” model and views to add replay etc.

+1 - A normal sub forum viewable for moderator only is exactly that…
