  • User Notes

    This may seem like a silly question, I'm just setting up a new site to bear with me....What are site admins mainly using the 'User Notes' feature for? The documentation suggests that it can used for keeping comments about a user attached to the user's profile, as in keeping it in one place. And I understand about assigning permissions to view them. However, seems to me it would be easier to do this in a restricted forum. Am I missing something here? Can anyone direct me to some examples?

    Thanks again for the help.

    I don't think they are used on many forums.

    For example... a user misbehaves so the admin enters a usernote and warns the user. Then that same user misbehaves again. The admin checks the usernotes and sees that this is a repeat offense so punishment is in order.

    Or they can be used for accountability. For example, you can allow regular users to post notes about others. If a user is curious what others think of some one, then he can check the usernotes of that user.

      There is a good hack on that when a user has a note, a little icon pops up beside there name so you can read the notes.

        Send infraction to the user

        I can find "User Infractions" in AdminCP left panel, but form where to leave an infraction to the user?

            Please start your own thread in the relevant forum for the version that you are running.
