Staff notes to a post add the note to the user instead of post

I added a staff note,via the moderator wrench to a post. Then to a second post.

Now it seems that in all my posts (disregarding the topic) i see near my username the staff notes icon. I thought i added the note only to that post, and not to my user.

When i click the icon, i get this:

Which correctly takes me to the post.

For me it feels a little weird to have the icon always there near my username. I expected to have the icon only at those posts for which i added the note(s).

Is this the normal behavior?

Yes, this is normal. Staff notes are designed to be primarily attached to ‘users’ rather than ‘posts’. If you want to have staff-only information about specific posts, maybe whispers would be more suitable:


I see now. Thanks for the explanation!
