I would like to have the ability to have posts moderated on my board before they become visible to members. The ability to put users on Moderated or Unmoderated status would be nice.

hmm I would like this functionality but not on the hole board but on some forums. Though it's not a feature i really long for

I'm sort of surprised that there isn't more interest in this.

Does any other forum engine support this?

Just imagine a bigger forum...

Yahoo groups have that feature, but you can put any user on moderated or unmoderated status. When you feel that a user has shown that they aren't just there to spam your board or some such thing, you can take them of moderated status.

I use that feature on a Yahoo group that I am a co-moderater of. It has about 2700 members, but moderating isn't a problem. I would use that, but I don't like sending my site's traffic to yahoo where there are ads that some of them find offensive.

It's a nice feature, but it's rather something for 2.0...
