Reported messages (create topic)

Something I still miss in phpBB is an option that will automatically create a discussion thread in a specified forum when a post is reported.

In this way, it is for the moderators on a board very useful to discuss what to do with the reported message.

That's very useful.
I doesn't have to be a topic, simple comment-like discussion below report hidden from public will do.

Me and other moderators/admins use such feature all the time on one forum discussing reports.

This is a good idea, but I think a comment system on the report itself would work better. Would make it more streamlined and not add 1 or more SQL queries when reports are created, closed and deleted to create, close (lock) or delete the report discussion topic.

Report comments could be implement either like the profile comments mod or as threaded comments; eg:

Comment 1
-Reply 1
--Reply 1-1
---Reply 1-1-1
--Reply 1-1

Comment 2
-Reply 1
--Reply 1-1
-Reply 2

Hope that layout made sense. :?

I prefer self an option that is able to create a topic, but maybe it is possible that you can set the option you want to use from the ACP.
- MCP - Commentsystem - Active - Yes / No
- MCP - Create topic in forum X - Yes / No
- Send Moderators a notify of the reported message Yes / No
- Delete topics after X days

The last option can be useful, because the moderators can subscribe the partical forum and will receive a notification when a message is reported.

Also when discussing a topic everyone will receive the notifications, and this can be very effective in my opinion.

That's a very old abandoned mod :-) More recent is this one, but I really think it has been abandoned as well. As far as I understand it from that topic, the version in the link worked up to phpbb 3.1.3, but stopped working in 3.1.4 due to some phpbb core changes.
