Is it needed?

Just wondering if this "Trash forum has a predefined purpose or can I remove it? Does it server someuseful function like if a topic is deleted it it goes there by default for reviewor is it only a logical thinking thing where moderators can move posts to that forum manually for review type thing?

It functions just like the trashcan on Windows; to hold deleted items for later review in case you may have deleted the wrong item.

To use it, you would need to select "trash" from the drop down instead of "delete". I tell my moderators when in doubt trash it instead of deleting because we can restore the post if it was removed by mistake.

Personally, I like having the "trash can" and my moderators feel more comfortable trashing a post or topic instead of deleting them.
