as a moderator, I’ve for a long time wanted the ability to “follow”, or somehow track an individual in order to monitor them, and this plugin does exactly that. However, i’d love if a “stealth follow” was available to staff and moderators, where we can follow a user, without them getting a notification, and without our name showing up in their followers list.
This way, we can use this feature to monitor certain users that are either trolling, harassing, or that we suspect will post malicious content in the future, and hopefully catch them before anyone has to flag it.
I just followed a user for the sake of tracking him, and he decided to follow me back, which i dont want, but i cant deny him from following me either.
I dont see this as essential, but it’d be a neat bonus to have. And i’d love if you implemented it, but its not an expectation. The plugin is great as it is
