i can't have a demo, because you should be a moderator of my board :)
however, i have uploaded few screenshots
you can see what this mod will do
see above (first post)

Only admin_board changes and one gif to upload to your templates/theme/images
in each topic you will have a bin icon, like delete/move/split topic, to move topic in the bin forum you defined (in adminCP)

Move topic already works to keep tracer or to move a topic in a specific forum

Yeah one click to move a topic, very useful for locked topic or topic waiting for Moderators or Admin approval

About your suggestion, that would be a split+move option (which already exists)
Currently i'm not for because that will get "viewtopic.php" too heavy :?

Will this work for individual posts? Or only full topics?

Only topics, not for post
post = split + move option

Bin is useful if you (ADMIN) don't want allow your Moderators to delete topics before you read them
example: you create a bin forum (only Mods & admins can view it) and enable pruning
Topics in bin will be deleted automatically :)
and you keep your total posts number

it's in that way i use it

Make it heavy! :D

This mod would rock if it worked with individual posts.

The mod does not work correctly for version 2.0.8, whether it is installed by easymod or by hand. I get XML errors when trying to access the forum period when I hand installed it and I got XML errors when I tried to access a subforum when easymod installed it.

Do you use the Rewrite Mod ?
There is no reason to have XML error with it :?
Your XML error come from an other feature, because if Bin mod will have XML error, the ModCP will have too :wink:

About subforum, do you have the Categories Hierarchy installed ?
if yes you have to add few lines to use Bin with CH
