> Would it be too hard for moderators to drop a note to a monk on approving a node in a section different from the monk's choice?

Yes "it's too hard", because it's not done by a little group of "moderators".

From a certain level on every monk° has access to the Approval Nodelet.

I agree that moving is confusing for new monks, I remember the first time it happened to me.

You might phrase a feature request that the OP is automatically messaged and / or info gets attached to a moved note.

But I'm not optimistic this might happen soon.

    In fact, why is the owner of a node not notified whenever any kind of change is made to it by another user? This would be pretty easy to implement.

    Update: Done. :-)

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      Do I want my mailbox filled with approval or frontage messages? Not sure...

      You are welcome to implement this, but you should anticipate the outcry of people who want to filter those messages.

      btw reaped posts are notified.

        How about a setting "Receive notification on [] reaped posts [] approval [] approval in other sections than I intended" in your profile?

        I wasn't thinking of moderation/consideration actions as changes. See RJE for examples of what I mean by changes.

        Update: Fixed RJE link; thanks to LanX for noticing. :-)

      There are quite a few Monasteries with many more zombies skeletons in the dungeon crypt, for instance: Sedlec ossuary (Czech Republic).

      Once it was considered ornamentation in the spirit of memento mori ;-)

      (I dug up the links because you mentioned having 'zombies in a dungeon' in an earlier version of your post)
