#1965 new enhancement

Improve spam/unspam/approve/unapprove

Description

Currently if you spam or unspam (or approve/unapprove) a post, you go to a new page in the same window that handles the process.

  1. We need that to be ajax if possible. If not (which is understandable) can it default open in a new window?
  2. We need some message that says what you just did. Right now you can't tell until you check the mod options

FYI, this is generally only an issue on the spam/pending views. Since there, we click 'approve' and end up losing our place in line. So the workaround is this:

  • See pending. Right-click Approve (or spam) and open in new window
  • Close new window
  • Refresh

It's not terrible but it's not great. Lower priority IMO.

(Also I'm not worried about two people pending/unpending the same posts. That was always an issue)

Related. We need more distinct flagging of moderated posts/topics

  • Unapproved and spammed topics should say so when previewing
  • "this post/reply is hidden from view' - like we do with plugin!!
  • Flagged users have a flag or make the 'unflag' thing red - more obvious. Name in red?

Also spamed replies and archived are both red, while pending are light yellow. The following colors might be more helpful, based on the color cues we use for plugins:

  • Keep spam red -- red == closed
  • Make archive purple (or yellow) -- yellow is for 2 years sans updates, so 'old'
  • Make pending blue -- blue is for 'needs approval' :)

Also, these are all toggles, which means if two people are looking at say the pending queue and both approve a post, it is now un-approved.

  • Priority changed from normal to high

Few things are as frustrating as forgetting to open in a new tab when going through these lists, let's get this sorted out sooner rather than later.

Low hanging, but great QOL improvement for our mods.
