In Permissions, Separate "Moderate discussions (delete/edit other's posts, lock topics)" into 3 permissions

    Please change each the "Moderate discussions ( delete / edit other's posts, lock topics)" from a single setting to three separate settings.



    Moderate discussions ( delete / edit other's posts, lock topics)



    Should become:

    • Lock Topics in Discussions
    • Allow Edit Other's Posts in Discussions
    • Delete Discussion Posts


    One reason for this request:

    This would allow you to set TAs (or other roles) to having only the permissions needed for that role instead of none of them or all of them. For example, the ability to only edit other's post but not delete a post in discussions.


    Per Cosme Salazar in More granular permissions for admins and In Permissions, Change "ADD, EDIT, and DELETE" into Three Separate Settings I have divided out the multiple functionality settings into their own requests. There are now 10 separate requests.
