How do these work ? It appears there have only been a handful of moderator actions since the new board started . yet i can see that several more have taken place .

After you go into the Mod Control Panel, look at the tabs on the top. The one that says "Moderator Logs" shows all the actions, by all the mods...... :wink:

If I had to venture a guess, I would say that after the Admins review the logs, they might occasionally delete them, to save space. Just a thought.

hmmm... I dunno! When I look, I see a total of 20 logs and 6 of them are mine. I don't see anything logged by David Benton or GOLDEN-ARM, but I do see one for UPRR engineer. Unless all the mods see the same thing I do, there must be something filtering the list by user. But what/why is a mystery.

Something to remember. If you haven't modified a post, there's not a log to see. For the Admins to keep an eye on who is making what mods, and for you to keep track of your own. When I make a modification, you'll see it........ :wink: Go into the Moderator Control Panel. Go to the 5th tab (moderator logs) You'll see everything that's been modded. The first tab is "Main page", and has only the most recent mods. I see two locks by me, and an addition to the Circ-7 list, when another member had info to add into a locked sticky. I can see all the other stuff too. You have to be in the correct tab, to see it. Regards

I see Otto made a mod on June 21, looking at the first page. That page shows the last 5 modifications. Have you made a mod, since then, that you are not seeing? Hit up Mike or Otto, in a PM, and see what they say......

at 18:25 hours I locked a topic, and it showed right up. Maybe there hasn't been any mod traffic, until then?

It seems obvious to me that we are not all seeing the same thing. Some say a picture is worth 1000 words so...

GA: I assume this is the right tab that you've been describing.

Yes it is, but I would remove that page from your post. The Forum has a rule about sharing stuff that's not available to the entire forum....... :(

(Forum Rules, Item 1., section M: Do not disclose, either directly or indirectly, information that is not generally available to the public or is otherwise privileged or confidential. (2007-09-19) ) Just a thought.......... :wink:

Thanks for the feedback. I'd thought about that, but I don't believe the image violates the spirit or intent of the rule. Whether it is against the rules or not, I'll let Otto or Mike decide. [Edit]: Otto has decided that the image was not for public viewing.

However, you did see what I mean that it's not the same information you see when you go into the moderator logs, right?

That's the same one I see, along with the "last 5" mods page, that's all there really is. You can scroll through the pages, to see whats happening. I don't see stuff in a mod que, so I guess that function isn't active, i.e.: waiting for approval from Admin, before allowing mod to occur. Interesting stuff, in this new version. Ir's getting familiar, like the last one did...... Regards :-D
