Bug in Activity Directory where admin moderates another user's posts

Reported by: nonegiven's profile nonegiven Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Activity Keywords: Activity Directory


There is another bug, or rather lack of consideration perhaps, in activity stream where admin moderates other user's posts.

A user posts a post ... It appears in Activity stream under their name.

An admin moderates the post for what ever reason, e.g. help, fix or censor ... the post then appears in Activity stream under their name.

(The moderation changes the name of the author.)

The original editor then changes the author name back to their own ... and it too appears in the Activity Directory!

It all appears complete with thumbnail images etc.

It looks confusing. It looks bad. It is exposing. Something is not being updated somewhere. Something is being added as new where it should overwrite as a correction. Too much information.

Perhaps admin corrections should be invisible, or there be an option to make them invisible?

Sorry, I see the problem but do not understand the technology behind it.

I suspect this might be part of WPMU problems but PLEASE as BP and WPMU are all part of the same stable now don't bat the tech problems between the two departments like Microsoft blaming hardware makers and hardware makers blaming Microsoft!

Sorry ... first line should read Activity Directory not stream

I don't know if this functionality existed pre-1.2, but it doesn't exist in 1.2+. Editing exists for forum posts, but not activity items. If the issue was with forum posts, and the issue still exists, feel free to reopen.
