Deletion of message by unknown member   Basic Help for Hosts

We had a member post to one of our discussions and his post was deleted. The member did not delete the post and is up-set that it was deleted with no explanation given. I am the co-manager to our forum and after speaking to the other manager it was determined that we did not delete the posting. Is there any log that shows who may have deleted the post? We have determined that from past managers of our forum that one of 6 that still have edit powers may have deleted the post. We are moving to get permission from our forum host to remove any one who is not a current officer in the club so this can not happen again.  I look forward to help with the problem

Unless it changed, there is no record of who deleted a post . . .

In my opinion, that would be a neat feature.......... If forum hosts and Managers could see who deleted posts.  If it was a person who has no controls that deleted their own posts, or if it was someone with Moderator or editing controls and I think it'd be neat also to be able to have a log of those deleted posts, so that hosts or Managers could see what was posted and who posted it after it was deleted.  Also, of course, you do know that someone who doesn't have Moderator or editing controls CAN delete their OWN posts, but only their own posts, right?

Just a random thought.  LOL

It's something that's been asked for over the years, but not something that engineering has elected to devote resources to. 

If you didn't delete a message, and your staff didn't (or if you have no staff) then the only option is the poster themselves.

Oh, I can understand that.  Actually, being able to see who deleted posts isn't really a big deal for me........ Thanks for the reply though, Gunter.
