Allow moderators to change topic timestamp

(Southpaw) #1

Admin should have the option to permit Moderators to change topic timestamps.


We have employees tasked with posting specific topics that need to be backdated. Currently, my options are

  • Grant these additional employees Admin :x:
  • Change the timestamps myself :tired_face:

Currently, Admin can change a topic timestamp.

timestamp1

Moderators cannot. :crying_cat_face:

timestamp2

There’s already some granularity as far as Moderator permissions. :raised_hands:

Could an additional option to “allow moderators to change topic timestamp” be added?

Since mods can muck with post date by resetting bump I think it is reasonable to allow them to change dates.

@vinothkannans can you extend this so mods can do this. I do feel though we should log that it happened in staff action logs, so confirm there is an entry there.

It’s done. Now moderators can change timestamps.
