Ticket #844: remove deleted posts from recent posts list

If a post on the forum is removed by an admin, it still shows up in the "Recent" list. It shouldn't show up there anymore.

isn't the better move to mark in the post deleted by admin. this simply removes the trace and covers up the real problem. nobody but the admin and anyone who happens to look at the thread knows what happened.

not speaking of outright spam, which nobody would argue against deleting outright with no trace.

moderating down comments so you have to specifically choose to see irrational/repeditive/offtopic posts rather than a few deciding nobody can see them ever would make for a better solution. but I don't want to reopen the ticket especially.

Well, editing the post to remove all content and replacing it with a note from the mod identifying the moderator and explaining the reason for the deletion is a good idea - but the downside with editing is that the original deleted content will not show up in

Ideally, we'd follow your suggestion and all edits (by mod or not) would be visible wiki-style. I support that idea, but it's a lot harder to implement.

1) replying to a slanderous post by CK isn't irrational.
2) there's no such word as "repeditive"
3) CK himself said the posts were on topic (

And so i speak up for myself when no one else will, and you'll call me some more names?

kat, apologies, I wasn't specifically talking about any of your posts and or none of jims over reactions to V* or E* posts. just in general. not having seen most of them I have no opinion but can guess who's pressing who's buttons and vice a versa.

and I later saw the link to deleted posts, but if they are removed from recent list, I don't think I will want to check deleted posts however many times a day to keep track of them, so although a good compromise no real solution. maybe deleted, non spamy posts could be marked forked to deleted or something. leaving it up to moderator to decide if a post is spam, delete or whatever.

have the new problem now where deleted posts that are truly inappropriate will be memoralized in deleted posts where they should probably be edited content deleted
