Comment authors should get an email if their comment is deleted or approved. This adds transparency to why (and when) an admin has approved or deleted their comment. A simple thank you email could be send if a comment is approved.

When deleting a comment the default email text could outline the possible reasons why it was deleted.

  • comment issue is resolved and is no longer relevant to the documentation
  • comment is a support question. (please open a forum topic)
  • comment is not adding to the documentation or is a duplicate comment.
  • comment code contains errors or is broken
  • comment code not adhering to code standards
  • comment contains self-promotion or spam

Admins should be able to edit the default email text(s) when they approve or delete a note.
Comment authors should be able to opt out of these emails in their profile page.
