I'm not sure what features would make most sense for such an
interface, so I think asking people who will actually be using it
would be the best way forward.
This is how the view looks currently:
The split dropdown lists the actions a moderator can take on a review:
Read the revision. In case the review has been updated since the
report was created, another link titled 'Read Latest' will be shown.
Edit the review. The way I've implemented this functionality
currently, a new revision is created, but we don't track that it was
created by an admin (and not by the review's author.)
I personally feel that we should add a new field (user_id) for each
revision which will keep track of who created it. It can be null if
the revision author is same as the review author (which will be the
case most of the time.)
Deleting a review is straightforward.
In case we don't really want to delete a review (I'm not sure why we
might want to do this) - we could add a 'hidden' field. A review that
is marked hidden will only be visible to the author and the
moderators, but will 404 for anyone else.
What would happen to a report when an appropriate action has been
taken on the associated review?
We could just delete the report, or we could add a 'status' field
which could have values like 'resolved', 'wontfix' etc. (Am I
I personally feel adding a 'status' field would be worth it, and will
leave more oprtions for the future.
I also toyed with adding bulk editing capabilities, so you could just
select some reviews and mark them all as resolved. I used the
bootstrap-table plugin for it:

sorting and similar table related stuff.
But, as I said before, I'm not sure if adding features like these
would actually be useful.
In case you're interested in the code, here is the pull:
