Precaution:
As the ext is still in development, major changes still can be applied which could require full extension purging and reinstallation, so use it on your own risk. DO NOT install it on production boards. For testing purposes only.

Special Thanks:

I was actually going to start working on a port of this, but you've already got further than I have. I'll be watching this one.

Just peeked at the code. How are you restricting the use of the BBCode to moderators? The idea of the original MOD was to now allow users to use the moderator message.

Nevermind, missed the function in the listener. :)

Well, I can see that as useful so a user can see he got a moderator message.
Otherwise, he has no indication unless he returns to the message he posted.

true, but you don't get a message now when you edit a topic/post (and lock that post) of a user, so he won't see that either.
Anyway, i really don't know how the notification system works, so i can't tell you if i will implement this, i you want you can make a feature request for it on github, if you don't use github, i will post it myself.

If a moderator is leaving a message about the post, should the user know? Many times a moderator will make a comment that really shouldn't be seen by anyone other than moderators/administrators IMHO.

also true, but this actually started as a moderator only bbcode (mod break) or some kind, but the option to show the message to mods/admin only is on my todo list, i know you had it in your mod Rich, and i agree on that this could be useful.

Hi,
Is this still [dev] or can it be considered stable now?
