Action reminders for moderators

(Andrew Waugh) #1

Every now and then someone creates a post on our forum which raises my attention, but my reaction isn’t immediate.

Two examples:

A user creates a post online complaining that they can’t submit via email. I go and look at the logs and see that there have been bounces from them (or not). If they have reached the bounce threshold I clear it, then I reply to the post online and say “Check your spam, talk to your ISP yada, yada”.

A user writes a post which is not quite against the rules, (i.e. calling for a deletion), but I would like them to revise it. I reply, either publically, or via PM, and say “Please revise your post”.

In both cases, I would like discourse to remind me (in some configurable period of time) so that I go and check the situation/reaction/response later.

Is this technically possible?

I suggest using bookmarks for this.

That is what I am doing now, it was more a timed reminder I was looking for: “Remember you wanted to check this up on this 24 hours after you responded”.

Perhaps it is more of a helpdesk ticket timer kind of thing. Perhaps I’m just crap at remembering what I don’t write down in a calendar.
