Actually, the mod should be able to suggest a new subverse and OP should approve. If OP doesn't approve within a timeout period, post is deleted.

Just to keep the balance of power weighed more towards the OP and help keep mods more like friendly janitors from disneyland.

I think this would work a bit better.

What if OP doesn't approve?

What is the point of a timeout period when the mod has ultimate say and all a user can do is quietly acquiesce?

How about restricting mod actions to those posts that fall beneath a certain threshold of downvoats? That at least gives ultimate power to the user base and prevents mods from abusing their positions by moving posts they may find objectionable.

I would propose that the post end up hidden, and the user can choose whether or not to accept the new subverse, or possibly choose a subverse of their own preference to send it to. This seems the least destructive, at least to me.

I agree with this approach much more.

This is a great idea, it's basically the same effect as deleting it as it removes it from the sub verse but it keeps it around so if somebody still wants to circle jerk they can keep circle jerking in the delete subverse.

This would make everything completely transparent! We would know what mods deleted, what was said, and from that we can guess why it was done, and judge whether the mod made a good decision or is being too nit-picky.

This is the greatest free speech protection this site could have.

Yeah but mods could do shit like move things they disagree with to the more extreme subverses.

Example: v/news Black Lives Matter Protesters Riot; Begin Attacking Random White Bystanders

Your post has been moved to v/niggers.

Although I have thought this over and really like the idea of being able to move threads, it does have some potential issues. Unlikely a forum where the mods generally work together on the whole board and have unified rules, Voat and Reddit have individual mods for each sub. You would need to some cooperation between moderators. Hopefully a mod wouldn't start shit shoveling threads to another mod's sub

Easy enough to solve the potential issues with choice. Leave the title up in the original location, throw up a brief splash that says its been moved and then redirect them to the post in the new location.

That's what that little downwards triangle is for.

Uhh no. It's not that fucking complicated, just don't delete shit. Literally every threat I've seen looks fine.
