    As it stands, moderators can leave a reason for why they delete public forum posts, but users can't do that on their own profile. It'd be nice if that could be changed, even if it's just a private notification the person on the receiving end gets

    Well you can put a reason, it's just... not publicly shown anywhere after.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    You can set a reason, it's just not visible because there's really no reason to make it visible. Mods only drop a little message to just give a quick reason why a post was deleted. They actually don't have to, they just do mostly to make people happy.

    I would imagine that the mods themselves can see the reasons we put for deleting profile posts, but otherwise they serve no purpose really.

    Oh, interesting. I suppose I have noticed that. It'd be nice if it extended to replies to posts as well, though

    Edit: And, obviously, it'd be nice if at least the person on the receiving end got some sort of notification as opposed to just having it deleted with no reason given
