I have previously asked for a CM message to be raised when a user is destroyed for spamming
but I have thought of a potentially better solution that doesn't need to involve the CMs.
If I come across an account that's spammed Stack Overflow (say) and needs to be destroyed I can check to see if there are any other accounts on other sites and then do one of the following:
- Check for spam posts on other sites and flag those. If there are no visible posts I can move on to the next option.
- Drop a note in TL to say that this account has spammed Stack Overflow - this would be one message per account.
- Do nothing.
Unfortunately, because there are often no visible posts and the relevant mods are not currently in TL I find myself doing 3. more and more often.
It would be nice if the system could raise an automatic annotation or preferably flag on the profile for the other sites' mods to see and process next time they are logged in. It doesn't require any extra human intervention and doesn't rely on people being online at the same time.
Of course this would apply for all deletion and destruction reasons. The other sites' mods would see the reason you chose and any notes you added. Personally I wouldn't mind if they also saw that it was me who "raised the flag" so if necessary they could ping me in TL for more information.
It could also apply to suspensions (thanks @rob but I think this might be less useful as suspensions are more common. If suspensions were considered then perhaps it should only be for those a year and over or if the user has been suspended multiple times.
