I would like to see moderator tags in default SMF

Tags who are available for moderators and administrators. It is useful for important messages (for example, "Stop flooding please" and etc).

useful for whom?

I have been running many sites with SMF for over a decade now and have used the moderator tags mod on exactly one of them.

I think that this function belongs as a mod. After all, it's a total of three clicks to install it. :)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

As the author of said mod, I strongly disagree about it being core, not least because most communities don’t need it or benefit from it.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Agreed. I also use this mod, but I don't think it should be included in the default features.

No, it’s that he’s talking about a mod that already exists but that he wants core, not that a mod doesn’t exist for what he wants.
