Allow admin/mods to edit members posts
We really need the ability to edit a members post as opposed to just deleting.
This would be ideal for our bot to be able to edit out a members post, or create our own customer filters which redact certain phrases such as emails and phone numbers.
It would also allow all admins/mods to edit things like the rules and information for a channel, taking a bit of the pressure of waiting for the original poster to be online.
Other fun text bots could be useful too, like our sarcasm cog which converts text to LoOk LiKe ThIs as a joke. At the moment, the bot just parrots what the user said however it'd be cleaner to just edit their text.
This used to be standard practice in many old forums, and a lot of Discord servers see use as a fire-and-forget message dump where people might not be available to repeat whatever they said immediately after deletion. People often say a lot of smart stuff and then have that tiny nugget that is against server and/or general guidelines. It would be a shame to delete the entire message, as opposed to just the offending part.
As such, I'd support this idea - though with two very strict caveats: 1) it would show "Edited by moderator" in big bold letters, and a record of the edit should be available for other mods. 2) it's a separately adjusted by server owner and does NOT come automatically for roles marked as "Administrator".
Edit: Also Discord servers with a separate channel for server rules would sing hallelujah for the ability to edit rules directly, instead of copy-edit-paste-deleting them.7
Had someone post a virus link. Being server owner, I would prefer the ability to edit their post by deleting the link, and replacing it with a warning. It lets other people know moderation has occurred, and the poster sees that their conduct was inappropriate.0
Not quite the same, instead of editing a users post: Define a post as 'shared' just after creating it, so that given roles/ people can edit that same post.
