Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Sometimes in Gaming, we use flag for mod attention to communicate among mods (about something specific to a question or answer).

It'd be nice if this was explicitly supported by the ability to annotate posts; I know we have chat but this would be more asynchronous, and it could also be used to leave notes/reminders for your future self.

I don't know where in the UI I'd put it, but functionally it'd be like comments only visible to mods.

I like this idea. I usually either favorite or comment on stuff I want to get back to later, and neither of those works exactly right for this purpose. – Bill the Lizard Sep 7 '10 at 0:44

I imagine it could be identical to the mod link on a user page; it would show a number next to the mod link on the post:

Since it's been nearly two years on this answer, I'd like to point out that annotations are best made to the poster's account, if the infraction is severe enough (i.e. a misdemeanor). Every account has a moderator flag history anyway, so it's pretty easy to find the infractions, and suspensions take care of the felonies.

Sometimes the problem is with the post itself and not the user, that's what motivated my request – juan Jun 19 '12 at 13:41
