Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I realized that Mod messages/suspension notices are not delivered to the inbox.

I'm not sure why that's so. With most activity being delivered to the Inbox, something as important as Mod messages should also be delivered.

You may argue that the suspension notice is sent to email - but if there's no email address provided, once a Mod Message has been issued, if there is an overlay(I've never been suspended, so don't know), dismissing the overlay would mean that there's no way to read the mod message.

Isn't the bright orange banner at the top of the page enough, or do the recipients of mod messages not get that the same as mods do when other mods send them? – casperOne May 10 '12 at 19:46
The only way to find out is to suspend yourself... FOR SCIENCE! – Lorem Ipsum May 10 '12 at 20:05

@casperOne They get the banner, but when it's dismissed, it's gone forever. – Adam May 11 '12 at 2:50
Banner blindness... What was that? – Robert Harvey May 11 '12 at 3:22
