Something that’s been requested, and that I’m in favor of, is creating some sort of “moderation notes” page for each user. This would only be accessible by curators, and curators would be able to write down any actions they have taken when discussing an issue with a user.
For example, if a user is uploading a lot of copyrighted photos, the first curator who notices the problem can either write some comments on the related observations or send the user a message about it, and then note that on the moderation notes for that user, like “Sent user a message about their posting photos taken from the internet and asked them to remove these observations.” which wold be date and time stamped. Then another curator who notices the problem can check the moderation notes and see that the user has already been contacted about it. That way the second curator doesn’t spend time writing another message, and the user isn’t bombarded with multiple messages.
To be clear, this would not be a page for curators to write personal opinions about the user, just a place to note actions taken and perhaps responses given, concrete things that will be helpful to other curators.
Does this sound like something that would be helpful? If so, how do you imagine it looking? Similar to the current flag page? Should curators be able to comment on another curator’s note as though it was a flag?
