In 8.5 there use to be the option to email the author of a thread that you are about to delete to advise them. I cannot find any information on this feature in 9.x. Is it still available or was the option removed?
Example from v8.5...
This feature of thread deletion was removed in favor of abuse management. Abuse management provides the author with a route to appeal the action within the abuse management workflow with a similar end result (thread deletion). When a moderator wants to just remove a thread, the delete option does this more quickly.
So if us moderators/admins need to delete a thread but want to alert the user (so they are kept informed what's happening and why) it's being deleted in a nice simple way...?
Flag the item as abusive. Flagging content as abusive as a moderator immediately marks it as abusive and hides the content from the site. The abuse management workflow will notify the author and allow the author to appeal the designation. If the designation is not appealed or the appeal is denied, the content will be permanently deleted when it is expunged from the abuse queue.
