OK, strange question here. With the upcoming improvements to group messaging, I am wondering if there is/will be a built in system for messaging just the moderators (not all staff). To go with that, does the admin/moderator system fit the rectangle square analogy (All admins are moderators, but all moderators are not necessarily admins.) With that, if a user is an admin, but not a moderator, do they lose access to anything?
The potential use case is when your site uses moderators and admins for different purposes. In my case, all admins are employees of the company, where the moderators are volunteers. Right now, when a user spots a topic in the wrong category or duplicated, they type a random assortment of moderators into their post to ask for it to be recategorized, or merged. It would be really nice if they could type something like
@moderators and notify all moderators, without bothering the admins.
