*moderated - members whose permissions setting "Follow Forum Moderation Rules" is set to No.

This product does not require any template edits.

Why Should I Install This Product?

Below are 2 reasons why this product is helpful.
There are many reasons why you should install I'm only listing 2.

Reason #1

To easily distinguish members who belong within a moderated group. For example, you may have the usergroup USERS AWAITING EMAIL CONFIRMATION in moderation. This member may send you a pm/email questioning as to why they can't post, etc.

Reason #2

With the new Infractions system, we can now modify a member's permissions based on another group. For example, you can easily change the permissions of a Premium member to that of a moderated group without ever changing their usergroup.

The problem with this is that it's hard to tell if a member is being "moderated". (Their usergroup does not change nor will they display as moderated within the modcp. This all depends on your current setup.)

In a large site with many staff members this can be problematic ... especially, when members starts emailing or sending private messages to staff regarding why they can't do certain things. What happens is that now we have 2-3 staff members working on one issue.

Where Is It Displayed?

Tagging is displayed in member profile and postbit (ie showthread, private messages, etc).

Aren't Posts Already Tagged As Moderated?

Yes, they are. However, the tagging of a member is separate from post moderation. So, it will still display even if a post has been approve. As mentioned above, it will also display while reading private messages or viewing a member's profile.

- hardcoded staff values (usergroupid 5,6,7) to use less overhead

Very useful thanks.

Are there any settings to this, as I am looking at a users private message and profile (he is in the usergroup awaiting email confirmation) and it is not displaying anything like in the screen shots.

you will need to set "Follow Forum Moderation Rules" (usergroup permissions) to NO for member to display as "moderated"

I set Follow Forum Moderation Rules to no for users awaiting to be verified. I then went to this users profile who signed up today and who has not verified his email as he is showing up as users awaiting email confirmation. http://www.gamerzneeds.net/forums/members/a55wiper.html

I do not see any moderated appearing next to his name.

does this not work for 3.7.3 ?

Any chance this would work for 3.8?
