Ticket #838 (fixed bug)

Moderators can edit Admin's posts.

  • Created: 2013-03-16 21:32:00
  • Reported by: raygene
  • Assigned to: quy
  • Milestone: 1.5.4
  • Component: code
  • Priority: low

This is an anomaly that should be corrected in core. Moderators should not be able to edit posts made by the Administrator(s).

How about Admin notes? Should mods be able to modify it?

I do not see why they should not be allowed to do so, if they have the rights to moderate a forum.

The hierarchy has to be observed in everything. The administrator is more chief than the moderator.

I agree, but there are cases where the edition of such messages can be useful. If you don't trust your mods, then don't assign them.

I think this *must* be at least an administrator choice (with a checkbox option in the admin panel). Something like:

* Allow the Moderators to modify Administrators' posts [_]

Honestly, I consider obvious that an admin's post shouldn't be editable by anyone else, especially if this privilege is allowed by default. It is not a question of confidence, it's a normal hierarchy.
