Oohh, I see. Neat.That's helpful already.
It still restricts the user to do inline-navigation, as opposed to the multiple tab workflow most users are used to. Is there a reason not to show the link in inline posts as well? The post anchor is useful inside threads, too.
I think it's down to cleanliness. I'm not sure id want links to the original post if I were quoting the post above mine. However I can see why you would if you were in a long topic of multiple pages (assuming pagination was activated), perhaps if the post you're quoting is > 25 posts away from the post you're making, it could link to the original, perhaps said: could be linked up with a quick link to the specific post. 0.5.1 should make finding posts in topics a lot easier with the new find feature.
By "dynamic" I mean any environment where these kinds of privileges may be changing frequently. It's not just about moderation, it's about their roles in general (reading and posting privileges). And I understand what an administrator is, but that's not a clean separation. Admin and moderator are roles (not specific, granular privileges) and in one case represented as a group and in another represented as a privilege.
It's not that NodeBB doesn't suit my use case. After finding the moderator option, I can pretty much do what I want to do. It's about the spaghetti process it took to get there. I'd just like to see this be simplified and presented in a more coherent manner.
