Question Merged Posts are Soft Deleted rather than Hard Deleted (vB4) [Request]

I've noticed when you merge two posts together, one of them is hard deleted.
If a moderator wanted to, they could hard delete posts by using the merge post feature.

I want my moderators to be able to merge posts, but I don't want them to be able to hard delete posts.

Hence I need somebody to make something like this:

The 'second post' which is merging with a former post (or vice versa), that post isn't hard deleted/ those posts aren't hard deleted. Instead it is/they are only soft deleted.

Currently the only workaround is if a moderator copies the original post(s) first & deletes the copied post. Then they'd merge the original post(s) with whatever post they want to merge it with.

Preferably the option should be added here:
AdminCP -> Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators -> [username] (Edit/Edit Permissions)
Merging posts will soft deleted instead of hard delete. [Yes or No]

Another suggestion would be to split up the 'Manage Thread' options.
So a Yes or No whether a moderator can merge/copy/moderate other posts.
As I don't want all my moderators to be able to merge & copy. I want some to just be able to moderate.
