Maybe my googling is just terrible, but i can’t find any documentation explaining exactly what the Staff Actions log actions and subjects mean. Could somebody please point me to that or post it here?
Its all so very vague and 99% of the time we don’t need to look at it, but when we do need to look at it usually there is some level of urgency to the clarity we are seeking. Some of them seem kind of obvious, but i can see how it may be easy to draw the wrong conclusions in the absence of clear definitions.
Nothing in particular as regards to Twitch. Staff actions and logs refer to in business a mutual exchange of sensitive information to show trust, which is the staff action part. The logs are administrative decision that are made by administrators as additional non-shared information for the good of business and the well-being of others. I posted that document because it explained it pretty good.
“entity export” is a genuinely bad name, so we’d need to get that changed in the source code. I’m not sure about that one.
User archive is the user exporting all their “stuff” (primarily their posts, since in a discussion system what else is there to do, really, other than write posts?) from their user page. You can trigger an export from your own user page if you’d like to see how this works – it’s fairly straightforward. Visit your user preferences and have a look, give it a go.
