Displaying your warning level with every post

Another simple suggestion.

The way the current system works, you see your warning leve beside every post you make.

Every one.

But why? I've gotten many messages from members that have felt stigmatized because of this. Even when they were give a minor 1 point warning for something simple, they have to view that warning point with every post they make. But is it really necessary? Wouldn't it make more sense to simply keep that displayed on the users profile page?

It really just doesn't seem like something that needs to be included with every post a user makes. When someone is warned, they have to read and acknowledge the warning. They don't really need a subtle reminder on every post they make.

Simple suggestion, likely just a simple template change even, but I think it just makes more sense this way.

Well, if anyone does want to apply this edit, it is a mostly simple template edit.

Edit the userInfoPane template bit under Global Templates.

Replace this line,

<if test="authorwarn:|:$author['show_warn']">

With,

<if test="$this->memberData['is_mod']">

That's it. Now the warning information will only display to moderators.

One small issue with that edit is that it will now display warning levels of administrators and members otherwise protected from being warned. Though it doesn't make it where you can be warned, it just displays a link that goes to an error page. Not a huge deal, but just to note.

<if test="authorwarn:|:$author['show_warn'] AND $this->memberData['is_mod']">

:P

It is, but it'd be a template change to every skin, which could be pretty annoying on boards with several skins.

Simple template overloader hook should take care of that.
