We have not even in the past kept every single infracted post - there are reasons that make deletion necessary or at least the better choice, in such circumstances even before there was no public flag of any action at all since th epost in question was gone. The poster pretty much always received or should have received a warning/infraction with an acompanying message as is the case now as well - so to anything remotely akin to what was discussed here your comments are off-point its already known to at least the user affected what happened and not less so than in previous situations. Regarding access to the infraction history: you are right. It should be accessible to the user, that its not appears to be a software limitation that right now cannot be remedied as it would require customization that is not readily available in a supported manner and as such would require someone to actively develop and maintain a customization. It should definitely be something to implement again when possible though. I doubt it will ever be a problem should someone ask for a copy of their infraction history to receive at least screenshots though and be given more detailed information for specific infractions. Mod text is probably the best way to mark a non-deleted moderated post right now (and actually were better in vbulletin too). Exclamation marks I need to even notice - but not having actually issued warnings outside spam deletions on the new system yet I appear to have missed them, certainly not noticed while reading the forums. Mod text also allows for signing - which neither the carding system in the vbulletin nor any exclamation marks now allow for. Soft deletion is what happens mostly and deleted posts are found - however in the search results for a posts by a specific poster they are not flagged as deleted as they were previously but rather not displayed - in order to find these you either need to know the thread or go through any warnings issued which is why I did not find anything in the first pass. Atleast that is the case given my forum permissions, admins might have more they can see. This is decidedly not a good forum behaviour in cases like this. Reporting is neither moot nor will it always lead to action and we do not and have not in the past logged reported but not deemed actionable in public. As for actions: they should as I agree generally be accompanied by a moderator message but I actually believe they mostly are now and have been previously.
