A while back we had a discussion about adding a post removal feature to the Blogs for members to remove posts from their own blogs. In the end the idea was thought to be easy to abuse. I thought the idea had some potential, so here's a more revamped suggestion: a "Hide Post" option. Here's how it works... - Users can choose to "Hide" a post in their blog. The post will be replaced with a message saying "This post has been made hidden by the OP" or something like that. There will then be an explanation as to why it was hidden as well as an option to be able to view the post. - The post will, however, not be quotable via the "quote" buttons. - The option can be disabled from any user by any moderator (from Mag Staff to Administrators) - Hidden posts can be made seen again by any moderator (Mag Staff to Administrator, again) - Blog topics can have the feature locked out, meaning only moderators can remove posts from that topic. - Abuse of the power will not only result in the removal of it, but the usual punishments (warnings, suspensions, etc) I think the idea should be taken into consideration. I find it unfair that, ever since there was that huge "kerfuffle" about the Blogs way back when, that people who use the Blogs seriously now pretty much out of the chance of improving privileges in the Blog section because of a select few. It's like an entire class getting detention when only a few kids were fooling around. It's not a huge issue and it may still seem a little too "radical" for some, but it's still a suggestion I thought I should make. EDIT: Typo.
