Perhaps a queueing mechanism would be useful where posts are held until moderator releases or bounces them with reason for bounce attached???
The downside of course is without protective code the possibility exists for multiple submits when a poster realizes that the post is not immediately public. But heh?? Protective code?? Are we onto something?
Posting here on the suggestion of Jake. I believe the following will make things easier to the mods job if people read the prefilled info.
the idea is to do this. When a member clicks a New Post button - 1. he already gets a prefilled Text Box in his New Post box. He will insert his answers inline or delete the prefilled text as the case maybe. 2. Or he will get the list of instructions above his text box
The thing to note is that the prefilled textbox will probably appear in ALL forums - ALL tools - so I have changed the text to be more 'generalised' than specific to LR.
Even though i am not an advanced PHP programmer - I can understand a fair bit of php code when I see it . I have done similar hacks to the open source PhpBB board to make a solution like the above possible. It should equally be possible to do it with the UBB boards as well (like this one). But its something that the site admins and mods like you have to work on it - provided they reach a consensus on the content of the text and that it should be included in all the boards and .
