I agree with your proposal of doing away with the message period, no ‘this message has been deleted’. It just takes up space and if we delete it, to me, that means it’s gone.

Hmm, ok. So should I just get rid of the 'This message has been deleted' and any message deletion action (from the member or from the moderator) results in the message completely disappearing?

Hi Mark, Neat freaks (moi) would prefer for the deleted message to be gone. No need for: 'This message has been deleted.' Thanks, Linda
I had hoped to have the first version of this completed by today, but I ended up having to make a lot of changes to the code and it's not quite ready yet. For this version:
- Members can edit their messages, and if they are moderated (or the group is moderated), their changes will have to be approved by the moderator.
- Members can delete their messages without approval needed. Deleted messages are replaced with 'This message has been deleted'.
- Moderators with the correct privileges can do all of this as well.
- Edits to messages are kept and are viewable/diffable, just like wiki pages.
One question for you all. Right now there is no way to make a message completely disappear. If a message is deleted, it's replaced with 'This message has been deleted.'. Should I allow moderators to completely nuke a message so that it's like it never happened?
