Addition to Report function
« on: September 09, 2008, 02:21:05 am »

I have tested out the report function. It works well. In addition to it's current function, I think the image status should be set to "waiting to be approved" just as if a new image is uploaded and needs to be approved. This way the image is out of public view, if it's inappropriate. If there is a hack out there, I didn't see it. Point me in the direction if it is. Other wise I think it would be a good "todo" for the next version.

Thanks for your suggestion. However, this could be used by a malevolent attacker to disable all your pics, using an automated script to generate a report for all the files you have. The top rule for coming up with code for an interactive site is "never trust user input". I strongly doubt that such a feature will make it into the core.
