We should have probably let you know about the last update. This is one of the features. Supporters are probably seeing new things like view edit history on posts that have been edited. Basically it just keeps things honest. Most edits are to correct spelling or clarify, but sometimes content is altered that make a subsequent post look out of place. Now you can see what happened.
We have also given supporters the ability to "superflag". If you report a post, it can be removed from view until a moderator reviews the post report. This "hold for moderation" is only given to supporters at this point, and we trust your judgement.
Here is what else was added:Who's Online per Thread/Forum
A longtime request: the "who's online" list will now appear inside individual forums and threads, showing specific visitors to certain areas. Look for it in the right side of the page. NOTE: this does not expose any additional information than the platform already did before. We've always shown who visited what thread/forum, but it was all gathered on one big page for the entire site. The update distributes this information so it can be shown in context around the site.Who Posted?
From any thread list page, you can click the reply count to get a table of who posted in a given thread and how many times. Useful for a variety of purposes, and sometimes just interesting to look at!Zero Credit Forums
We can configure certain forums NOT to contribute to users' post counts. If you don't want posts in "Off Topic" to swell users' post counts. This is NOT retroactive, and we are not currently using this feature.Profile Infractions
Moderators can issue an infraction directly to a user's profile now. Previously we could only give an infraction for their posts and other content. Mostly this has to do with improper commercial links or spam.Thread Starter Notation
Within a thread, the user who started the thread will now be labeled "thread starter" in all their posts throughout the thread.PM Preview
Preview functionality was added to PMs (this is mostly useful for users on the BBCode editor).Deleted Posts Visibility
At the request of partners, we've added new permissions that can allow you to see your own deleted posts and threads vs. seeing all of them. In some situations, sites allow users to see their own deleted posts (so they can know with certainty that it was deleted, and view the reason left by the mod). We have not implemented this at Epicski, but may enable this for the supporter group. We really don't delete many posts.CK Editor found your post delicious
We realized that folks were often clicking the "CLEAR" button in the reply editor by accident, thinking it was a submit button. So we made a design change. "Clear" is still there, as a link, but it should no longer compete visually with the submit/preview buttons.
Some moderation tools, otherwise, this is it.
