I sent an official warning today, but included the other mods on the message, which removes the warning.
Would it be possible to keep the warning status if the other invitees are mods? What I wanted to do was roughly equivalent to cc: the other mods so they know what is going on. Sending a warning, then sending a second PM to the other mods, then repeating that for any subsequent conversations seems a lot of overhead for a fairly straightforward communication.
I tried on my localhost install. IMHO it worked well.
Two things. The icon is atttached to the member, not any particular post. So if an otherwise good member slips up once in a sense they’ll be “branded” perhaps a bit unfairly. Second, the notes are co-owned by all Staff. That is, any Staff member can delete a note.
In other words - have a good staff that you can trust.
