Basically what I am proposing is a checkbox next to each topic and a dropdown and button somewhere on the page that supports modifying topics: Sticky, Announcement, Delete, Hide (require approval), Show (approve), Normal, Lock, Unlock
Instead, in YAF one must modify each topic internally by editing the first post. I find this quite time consuming and frustrating :(
It would also be nice to have a button that hides (require approval) and shows (approve) each post in case a moderator has questions for the administration about the contents of a post inside the topic itself.
On a positive note, I like the progression of YAF so far, I believe it has the potential to be great :)
EDIT: I can photoshop something if need be
