I own a private board, and have a couple of people I trust as leaders. Recently one of the leaders deleted some posts by a user who was harassing another user. While I agree with the deletion, and trust this leader's judgement, I'm the type of guy who likes to see the specifics of things. All I can see when I go to my board control panel is that messages were deleted from x topic by x user at x time by x leader. Why can't I see the actual content of the messages?

I can imagine how not being able to see the content of messages has the potential for abuse - what if a leader of a private board starts deleting posts maliciously, against the wishes of the board owner, but there's no evidence of any wrongdoing?

I think it'd be a nice feature to add, if at all possible.

It seems silly that this doesn't already exist. Without it, there's a lot of opportunity for a leader to go rogue. And before someone says "well make sure you trust your leaders", it's possible for people to spend a long time gaining the trust of another person only to betray that trust at a really bad time (I'm sure there's a few high profile thefts in EvE Online that have occurred this way).

Bump.

I submitted this as a feedback ticket suggestion, and was notified that it got "filed" for future perusal. May be a good sign.
