Should the activity tab in the profiles of moderators list moderator actions too? For example, opening, closing, deleting, and undeleting. This information is already available from within the posts themselves, so it makes sense to tie it in with the rest of the moderator's activity.

Note, I'm not suggesting that all moderator actions be listed. Only those which are already publicly communicated.

    why isn't it a feature request? – juan Mar 23 '10 at 19:55
  • It's more of a feature-extension than a request, no? – Sampson Mar 23 '10 at 19:56
  • @Jon, if you don't mind, I'll tag it [feature-request]. – perbert Mar 23 '10 at 20:00
  • If you want it to have the .00001% chance of getting implemented, I think it should be tagged as a request – juan Mar 23 '10 at 20:02
  • @voyager: I don't mind at all if you guys feel it's appropriate. – Sampson Mar 23 '10 at 20:10

    i'd like this. sometimes i cast a close vote without leaving a comment. especially for close as duplicate, since the post i said it was a duplicate of is already listed without requiring me to leave a comment. in those cases i might want to check back later in the day to see what happened to that question, but i have no way of finding it again. – Kip Mar 23 '10 at 20:42


Only thing to take into account if implemented for all users would be to extend the length of the list, or allow to paginate one or two pages back, as the activity tab would grow much faster were this to be implemented.

To be a little bit more broad, this information should be in all activity pages. If I can open and close, why isn't that reflected in my activity?

    True, but our votes aren't binding. I'd still like to see a summary for me personally, but I don't care so much about seeing everyone else's history. – mmyers Mar 23 '10 at 19:52

    @mmyers: a compromise to this would be to log open/close actions in the activity log only when a question is actually opened/closed. This would then match the behavior on the revision history for questions themselves (voter names logged when question state changes). – Shog9 Mar 23 '10 at 20:12

    @Shog9: I'd settle for that. But I'd still like to see my own votes even (and perhaps especially) if they don't result in actually closing or deleting the question. – mmyers Mar 23 '10 at 20:58
