As you know there is a built in feature called ‘Staff Colour’
What is the proper use of it. Is it for setting an example to others and important announcements? Im just looking for the proper use. As for now my forum uses it for staff setting an example.

Secondly, to give an
official answer in a public topic where two or more team’s members have differing views and a user do not know which of these instructions should follow (very rare, but it happens).

This notes can be added from the button (post admin actions) and Add Staff Notice.
Sorry for the massive bump. But I’m currently customising my discourse forum, and I’m wondering how exactly I can customise the staff colour. Like what is the css I need to put in for that, or change.
It’s not really CSS but it comes from theme colors instead. In your admin settings --> Customize --> Colors --> [select a color palette] and then choose a new
