Pre-moderated postings in conversations

Now that we have "x new posts" on Personal Spaces, that's all well and good.

If a Researcher is on pre-moderation and posts to a thread, this shows up as a new post but there's nothing to read there.

Can this be changed so that it doesn't show up as a new post until it's been passed by a moderator?

==========

If that's not possible, then perhaps a workaround: allow Researchers to mark conversations as "unread", similar to email programs like Outlook or Thunderbird. This way it would still show a new post, allowing the Researcher to check back later to see if the post has been passed.

Well I've been posting in Anyone Fancy a chat and Lord Wolfden's posts appear as new posts before AND after they've been moderated, if that's any help

They do? smiley - erm I only noticed this because of his reply to my Pirate thread on MiscChat, which showed up as a reply before being moderated; I didn't notice it showing up again afterwards, although that may just be my being unobservant...

I only noticed it because it came up after I posted and I clicked on the link and it took me to one of his postings on a previous page

I think part of the point of premod is that the researcher loses certain priviledges (like being able to take part in the flow of a thread) and that it's good if people aren't able to read their posts in real time.

This is because most people I've known on premod have been trolls, and a period of time in 'lag' seems to make them have a think about their behaviour.

I woudn't want that to change, although I know it is somewhat annoying if someone actually wants to read their contribution.

The same could be said for lord wolfden he was done for flooding and spamming, he seems to have learned his lesson for the moment. Lets hope it doesn't happen again
