I have been looking for it, I KNOW it is there, if I find it I will post a link.

BUT, this also gives the coders here some idea of the real, actual way to do this.

EDIT: Granted this is not a BB code, but why do you need one to accomplish the task? Seems like a gross overcomplication of a simple deal.
A mod like what you described sounds like a lot of work to build as it would surely require a new database table or at least a new field in the post table. But I think that's the only way to go for what Revenga wants.

I agree, I don't think it can be done with BB code so you're left with other alternatives and ideas.

I wonder though, what would you be writing that you can't just use User Notes for, and train your staff to be checking them regularly, or even start a thread in the admin/mod area with anything you want to say about a post you don't want reg. members to see? Shoot, the flag feature even, would start a thread in admin and you can comment there.

Having a hard time understanding why this is even necessary.

So be it then, no big deal. I'll search around a little bit and see if I can find something. Thanks again for all your help.

I help run a gaming community and when people get banned from our game servers, they are given a message telling them to appeal at our forum. They create an appeal thread in effort to get unbanned and tbh most of them get rejected. However there are times when it would be nice to make a comment to only our admins/super mods to help move things along quicker within a post that no one else can see rather than creating new topics in our admin section. That's why I was hoping I could do it using BB Code.

But it's no big deal, I'll look around for other mods that can accomplish a similar task. I'm sure I've seen them before, but it's been a while.
