At this time "Custom Profile Fields" have two limitations and I don't quite understand why.
1. Privacy options are limited to:
a) Users can see this field; owner can edit it
b) Users can see this field; admins can edit it
c) Users cannot see this field; owner and admin can edit it
d) This field is only visible to admins
2. "Show on Topic View" availability depends on "Privacy" option selected, i.e. becomes active ONLY when either option 1.a) or 1.b) is selected.
Is there a reason for that? I would very much like to create a custom field (let's call it "Notes"), visible/editable ONLY to/by admins AND moderators and also have it shown on topic view (say, "Below signature"). That would enable moderators to make behavioral notes about nasty users, visible only to moderators at every post made by said users.
In short, I would like to:
1. have a fifth option (This field is only visible to admins and moderators)
2. have "Show on Topic View" active for any "Privacy" option.
Is this reasonable/doable?
