Ability to check chat history of users who are in chat-restricted
In the stream I mod, we are using the chat restriction feature to prevent trolls from spamming messages. In some case where we see the troll is spamming even if they are in chat restriction mode, we take further action to permanently ban. But since chat history of chat-restricted user appears not being logged, other mods / streamer cannot see the context of ban.
Can we make the chat history of chat-restricted users logged? I'm pretty sure there will be many other scenarios the chat log is going to be helpful for moderating the chat.
I moderate three streamers who have variously been defamed, slandered and threatened but we cannot retrieve the messages as they are restricted users. It is extremely important to have proof that these messages exist and therefore that the history remains permanently in order to take legal action and protect oneself.
From the POV of a Moderator, This would be incredibly helpful, as more and more users are using third party apps that state when a user has been banned or timed out, the restrict chat feature has become incredibly helpful to discreetly remove someone from chat. Not being able to see their restricted messages going forward is difficult to make required decisions in the future.
