Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used

Description:

This mod replaces the Report to Moderator feature.

Instead of being sent by mail, reports are posted as a new thread in a board specified by the admin in the modSettings ("Features and Options"), quoting the post in question. This board should, of course, only be accessible for staff members.

All reports have an unsolved icon (), which can be toggled to a solved icon () using a button right next to the "Lock/Unlock" one in the thread's display. You can replace those icons in $themedir$/images/post/ if you like.

Reports are visible to everyone who has access to the specified board. The origin of the report is shown in the subjects:
[Forum Name] Thread Name
So mods can easily find the reports concerning their assigned forums.

Advantages of this mod:
- mods can see what's been dealt with (and what's not) in their section, and admins can see if mods are doing their jobs ;)
- reports can be discussed, since the report threads can of course be replied to just like any other thread
- reports are archived, for further reference
- no more mailbox checking for reports. reports via mail are often overlooked, so users lose trust in the report feature pretty fast. At least that's how it is at my place :)
- if the user has the appropiate permission, he can see a marker in reported posts, and their status with a link to the report
- quicksolve: reports can be solved/unsolved by clicking the [ report ] marker in posts while holding down ctrl. (tested in opera, ff and ie. can be disabled. only default theme.)

Consequent reports of the same post are posted as replies instead of new threads in the report forum.

Added option (by permission) to show a marker of reported posts in message view, and their solve status

Reporting of PMs to a different or the same board is optional.

Unsolved reports are listed above solved ones in the report board.

Since version 0.96, a permission is required to solve topics. Make sure you have that set up for your staff members!

Does not include a "solve report" icon for the babylon theme, you'll have to set that up yourself. PM me if you have the icon ready and I'll add it :P

1.1 beta 3 support dropped since version 0.95, use that if you still use that version (which you shouldn't by the way)

The first of my mods to reach version 1.00. Huzzah!

\\ 1.4

1.1.7 compatibility and a very minor fix
