    When I first started modding, I made a number of moves/edits without notification.
    Believe me, the loungers, VIPs and other Mods quickly straightened me out! (Ouch!)

    I'd have to say that as a general rule of thumb; that the more contentious a post is the greater the necessity for the editor to make a statement about the action.

    When I go to edit an existing post, I see this:

    [attachment=87733:Screen shot 2010-01-14 at 12.47.44 PM.png]

    All admins and mods who are editing other users' posts should be using this form to publicly announce the reason why it's been edited (if appropriate - otherwise PM the member directly). When moving a thread, a placeholder should be left that points users to the new location. When deleting a post, the admin or mod should notify the poster via PM unless it is completely obvious that the post was breaking rules (spam, NSFW attachments, or hostile attacks on individuals). I'm not sure what should be done in the case of deleting an entire thread -- suggestions?

    I've spoken to the admins here in the office and only Brian among us has ever edited, moved, or deleted posts or threads. It is likely that he assumed anyone involved in those threads and posts knew his reasoning and so he did not elaborate. Also, it would be very difficult to notify everyone who is watching a thread that it has been deleted and why. It is also difficult to catch all links to the deleted post that might exist elsewhere in the Lounge.

    So, this is our basic [s]unwritten[/s] policy. We may still screw up occasionally, so just PM me if you see something that doesn't seem right.

    Thanks,
    Tony
