Show "preapprove poster" checkbox to community maintainers only
Short, concise description of the idea
Edited 2008-11-9 to align with what the option really does Don't
show "preapprove poster" to community moderators on the entry moderation page unless they're also maintainers.
Full description of the idea
Currently, that option is present for all community moderators, whether they're also maintainers or not,
but can be used by maintainers only. The "successfully approved" message ignores that and claims the poster was added to the "can post unmoderated" list for the community. This suggestion would remove that option (and the attempt to add the poster to the list) when the moderator isn't also a maintainer. Less confusion from options that silently fail to do what they claim Less worry by half-awake moderators that their mistakes may have harmful consequences
- Disappointment from moderators who enjoyed having that option offered
, even if it doesn't actually do anything.
