#1956 new defect

All w.org users should be able to report posts or topics

Description

Previously any w.org user could add the tag modlook (or any tag actually) to a forum topic and flag it for review by the forums support and and moderation team.

The only way to add the modlook tag to a topic currently is to either:

a) Add a reply and including the topic tag in that reply
b) A moderator or above edits a topic and includes the topic tag then saves updating the topic

Should also work the same for removing them, if not we can't remove the tag without editing a reply or writing our own.

Normal process when handling a modlooked item:

  • Watch the tag
  • Enter topic thats tagged
  • Remove modlook to prevent others from jumping on the thread
  • Actually handle the topic

There's this plugin - https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress-report-content/

it also reports who reported :) We'd want to hide that ... or maybe not. If everyone knows everyone's reporting, that could be interesting.

1956.patch implements a "Report topic" action to the sidebar.

Who and when is recorded at the time of reporting, and the list of previous reporters is visible to those with moderator capabilities under the report action.

The report feature adds the modlook tag to a topic, this means our existing modlook view can keep being used, and users already familiar with the term can manually add it if they wish.

When a topic is flagged, moderators can easily remove the flag using a button in the sidebar as well.

I opted to allow users to report the same topic multiple times, and each time they are recorded as a new report. To avoid the logging going crazy, I chose to limit this to only log 10 reports from a single user on any one topic. If moderators observe that many reports on a topic by a single user, it should raise some eyebrows and they should look into the matter.
