Suggestion- "Eliminate" mod tool

matthias00matthias00 Registered User regular
I was just thinking that it might be a cool thing if mods could "Eliminate" people instead of banning them. Eliminating someone would mean they would be banned, and at the same time every post they made is deleted too.

Basically, if xXGokuSephirothXx is massposting goatse, a mod presses the "Eliminate" button or whatever they do, and, after confirming the elimination, xXGokuSephirothXx is banned, and at the same time all of his posts are deleted.

Good Idea? Bad Idea? Moderately Okay Idea?

    Thought you meant the users could use it and destroy a mod.

    I bet we would ahve much more polite mods.

    true, but you also have to remember that mods can delete posts as they see fit.

    Wow, they'd have to put a timer on it or I'd just run rampant with it.

    Uh, yeah.

    This is more of a "panic button"-esque thing than anything else in my mind.

    "CRAP CRAP CRAP THIS GUY HAS FILLED THE G&T PAGE 1 WITH GOATSE" *Eliminate button is pressed* BAM. Goatse is gone.

    It's certainly possible. But perhaps, adding onto your suggesiton, and the replies if they contributed before, would be to delete all their posts from x date on.

    It's easy to eliminate threads.
