on a busy forum, Admins know the phpbb3 Warnings sytem inside out. it is effective and brings home to members that what they have done is not acceptable and other moderators can see at a glance, how many warnings a user has received. only other moderators and the warned person themselves, can see the warning though. this all works brilliantly and is a big help to a site's healthy operations day to day.
After having seen that continue well for a few years, I now wonder whether a second system, exactly the same as Warnings really, same principles as above but called something else, "Merits" I'm not sure, but Moderators do see members helping other members, being nice when others are being harsh etc. Wouldn't it be great if you could hit a "merit" button, the member gets a hidden "acknowledgement of excellent conduct" sort of thing, same as before? only other moderators and the nice person themselves can see the "merit" though.
Does anybody else feel this could be good in 3.2 ?
