My apologies, I should have paid more attention to the narrow minded. The use case is simple, making profile warning count public would bring more incentive for users to avoid getting them, a sort of "shame" factor comes into play. There are a number of other instances where it could be used, but they are rather specific to my own forum.
Please do not make assumptions about something you have no knowledge of.
Maybe, but there are two other scenarios - some would see it as "badge of honour" and try to get a warning and others would see it as a demotivation and leave the board.
You can't really earn a warning by mistake, but then again that depends on the forum rules and moderators. Keep in mind that the idea here isn't to force forums to adopt public warnings, but to give the board owners the freedom to tweak their board as they see fit. If you have a forum where users get warnings for mere mistakes then you can just leave this permission untouched, it's not like these few lines of code will bloat the software.Lumpy Burgertushie wrote: ↑Sat Feb 16, 2019 4:58 pmI would think that having this would make people not want to be a member of your board at all. you would probably run off members that have not had a warning when they see that if they make a mistake they would be publicly shamed.
I think this is a horrible idea in principle.
If that is the case then why don't you create a PR for the changes - believe me it will be a lot more than a "few lines of code"
I would if I knew the change was welcome, but seeing how much this community hates the idea of customizability, I doubt that PR would go through and I don't want to waste my time.
yep and that's why we have all those custom styles and extensions. We really hate customization around here
I'm talking about the Core here, the way these people think they know best how to run a forum and that everyone else should conform to their views.
The forum can be here, that doesn't mean some people (including ones participating in this discussion) won't be trashing topics.
And so far hasn't brought many results.
Please elaborate how this is a privacy issue.
Not every person speaks out, although this issue was brought up in the past.
The permission system was created for a reason. The fact that warning visibility is predefined for a specific acl group goes against common sense.
Perhaps it's not needed for you, doesn't mean it's not needed for anyone.
Keep saying that to any improvement suggestion ever and eventually you'll end up with software that's years behind other.
