A big thanks to everyone who nominated or voted this for MOTM September 2007!
e-steki User ModLog


What is this about?
This modification shows the user a table in his UserCP with the latest moderator actions that are performed in his posts/threads.

1. Why this and not Moderation Auto-PM?
  1. Its not intruding for the user. In fact, I decided to make this because the Moderation Auto-PMs I was receiving by tons were too annoying to bare.
  2. Its not in the Modification Graveyard, so there is a much higher chance of updates and support ;-P
  3. It allows more types of actions to show (unfortunately exept hard deletes).
  4. Its more visually appealing ;-)
  5. Users have to make more clicks to discuss an issue with the moderator, which makes it a little harder for them to protest ;-)
  6. Most forums have some "moderation routines" that involve many moderator actions. Especially in this case MAP can be REALLY annoying.
  7. You can select to hide the Moderator column, so no hatred will begin after the action as the user will not know who performed it.
2. Features
Admin Features
  1. Absolutely NO template modifications and you even get to control where the table will be placed in the UserCP with a simple setting!
  2. Ability to hide who the moderator that performed the action was.
  3. Fully phrased.
  4. Your moderators will not see their own actions, but the actions performed by other moderators on their posts/threads (customizable).
  5. You get to control which action types will be shown and how many of them.
  6. Ability to set a cutoff limit, so that actions that are performed before X days will not show.
  7. Ability to specify which mod/admin usergroups' actions will display.
  8. Displays actions from the moment you install it, even old ones, it doesn't display only the actions that are performed afterwards.
  9. Supports e-steki Featured threads.
  10. A nice, usable and extensive manual instead of an ugly readme.txt ;-)
End user Features
  1. Easy spotting of the action type by the nice colorful small icons (provided by famfamfam.com. Thanks!)
  2. Actions that were performed after the user's last visit will display in bold. Of course, they are sorted according to the date and time they were performed.
  3. There is a link to the thread that the action is about. If the action is about a post, then the link takes the user to that specific post. There is also a link for the forum that contains that thread, in case the user does not remember what it is.
  4. The table is collapsible, and if it has nothing to display it doesn't show, just like the other tables in the UserCP.
  5. The username of the Moderator (if the admin has selected him to show) is formatted according to usergroup and links to his profile (so the member can send him a pm to talk about it, if he wishes to do so)
  6. Full date and time displayed.
Don't forget to Mark as Installed!
Support will be provided only for a few days after each release.
Thanks a lot to famfamfam.com for the icons and to SirAdrian for his answers to my questions.

As the admincp screenshot was resized by those stupid attachment limits that Paul M refuses to change, here is the original one:

Got it installed w/o any problems. I adjusted the settings in vboptions, went an moderated one of my own topics, checked the usercp but didn't see a listing of any sort. I did turn on that option in the main options. Also, checked to see if the hook was present and it was.

I check over things once more to be sure I did everything right.

Edit: Posted a new thread, close, stuck, soft deleted and nothing new in the usercp?

Have you got the setting "Show actions that the same user has performed?" to Yes? (default is no)
Otherwise your own actions will not show.

What moderation action did you perform?

Yes, and I closed, pinned, soft deleted and finally hard deleted. Also, I have all those action id's put in the settings as well.

You are not supposed to put them there!
You put there only the ones you DON'T want to show! (I would be a sadist if the setting was the opposite way )
