Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Context for images: I know that Monica is a staff member of Codidact, which also makes her a mod, so if there's a question you have about the images, here's the context.

I have recently learned about Stack Exchange's new update on the tagging of accounts. Here's an example photo of a mod in Stack Exchange in the homepage:

However, Codidact doesn't seem to show an icon at its homepage, let alone text to mention it.

It'd be greatly helpful to add the mod icon (Codidact Mod Icon) beside a moderator's username for verification that it's the true user. Let's not have a "Staff" one for now, the staff size isn't too big, or even the mod size.

The icon appears in the "user card":

It doesn't appear in the post lists (question list, search results, etc), but it doesn't seem like mod/admin status is important to call out there, where you aren't yet seeing what the person actually said beyond a title.

The latest changes Somewhere Else make some meta sites look like overdone Christmas trees, with big blue and orange markers everywhere including comments. I think we can be more...sedate than that.

What I'd really like, someday (not a priority now) would be for mods/admins to be able to use the marker when it makes sense but not when they're just acting as ordinary users. That I have special privileges should mean nothing at all when I'm answering a question on Cooking or asking a question on Software Development. Even on metas, mods/admins should be able to weigh in as regular users without unduly influencing the voting. We'll need to think through the design of optional display of these markers, though; it's an ares where the code is probably easier to sort out than the behavioral norms.
