I reported a post from a staff member. At the time, the post in question was up for around 15 minutes or so I believe, which means that the edit was not a "last minute" fix but rather the member acting upon the reported post.
The comment was a clear unnecessary post. With unnecessary posts, it's known that members receive one caution had they not used a caution in the past. If they had, punishment would be 3 points as usual.
Whenever I looked at the thread again later, I noticed that the staff member had edited their post to make it not an UP. They were never cautioned or warned for the post but instead got the chance to edit it & alleviate their post.
Why are staff members given the chance to edit their post as opposed to receiving normal punishment but community members are not? That seems pretty unfair.
I would only like to receive an answer from Rolle himself. Thanks!
To say that you can't act on it since there is "no concrete evidence" is silly. You can see clearly that the post was edited most likely after the post was discussed in #staffgeneral. To back up this claim, you yourself can read the chat and see what the outcome was decided for the post. It was obviously marked, but the point is that the staff member was allowed to edit it and have no punishment.
On top of this, you can see the staff member viewing my profile around the time that the post was reported. This, again, backs up my claim that a. the staff member was allowed to alleviate their post + b. it was not a "genuine" edit as they viewed my profile after it had been reported and had the time to edit their post to circumvent any repercussions.
