The edit reason is not enought. User should
get notification. It is very necessary. Most of my questions in this forum concern the issue of phpbb compliance with the law in particular security issues. Hence, I asked about forcing password changes for admins, 2FAs, etc. as well as for the protection of personal data. People should
have an overview of all moderation activities on their posts and accounts. Same warnings or banning info is not enough.
AmigoJack you are right, too few people are interested or do not understand these problems.
This is overkill. Some moderator edits are are simply correction of spelling errors, and giving a notification for something like that which should pass unseen is a waste of resources, possibly leading to further reactions and more wasting of resources.
Also, which law is applicable? (bearing in mind that there is no internationally accepted, nor enforceable legislation).
This is actually opening a can of worms since being quoted should
(I'm using your terminology here) then also result in a forced notification so that the first poster can verify that he has been quoted correctly (and even completely).
The options AmigoJack gives include the possibility for the user to request
receiving notifications, not the board enforcing notifications upon the users. That to me is the user friendly way to go.
If this is were a request for an extension I wouldn't be replying in this topic, but I'm against including this as a standard feature in phpBB, hence my NO.
