It’s probably not possible:
But is there any way when a post is deleted the original post that was deleted gets quoted in the message the automated admin sends everyone involved in that post chain?
If this were possible I think it would do a great deal to eliminate the “phantom post deleted” complaints people have. Folks might be replying to a poster that replied to someone else and have no idea why their post got canned when the first person in the chain got deleted.
Some message like the following would be great:
“The following post was removed by the moderators:
Due to the way the forum software works, any replies to this post also were removed.”
This way if a post is removed, you can see right in the message if it was a post you made or someone else that was the issue and you happened to be part of the chain.
