Staff Notices for....staff?

Regarding the staff notices functionality…is there a plugin or something which would allow us to use staff notices so they are only visible to staff?

We ran into a situation where someone put a staff notice on a post thinking those were only visible to staff (it was a quick heads up about a problematic user in a thread), but obviously the notices are visible to all, so we had to remove it quickly.

Having the ability to drop quick notes within a thread, especially a problematic one, which are visible to only staff would be an invaluable tool for consistent moderation and cohesive “behavior” from staff, so I was wondering if something like that is available and I just can’t find it.

Have you experimented with whispers?

In addition to what Stephen mentioned you could perhaps utilise the Discourse User Notes plugin to keep track of problematic user(s)
