Default Question/feature request about warning system on ED forums

When I receive a PM message from a member I get a wee pop-up window asking if I want to view the message, really handy and useful feature

Would it be possible to have a wee pop-up window when a mod adds some warning points to your account?, so you can be made aware of it being done?

Getting a warning and then another warning a few minutes later
but being totally unaware of this happening is possible with your current system.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, have a nice day

A good idea, but not sure if possible. I will ask.

We will when possible send a PM with the warning

Yes, it is a good idea.

I am curious, however, under what circumstances would a moderator have time to issue a warning but not have enough time to send a PM. The PM should not take more than 30 seconds.

Maybe on occasions when there are lots of postings incoming on a certain matter that are deemed necessary to delete

Three out of three times someone was too busy. I find that statistically unlikely.

You either believe what I have said or you don't, I wont be giving an insight into what we have to do as moderators.

It's easy to keep track of that one thread and couple posts you made, we have to keep track of that one thread, plus all the other threads, your couple posts, and all the other posts. When we think the user should know better, or has been given other hints at his path to warning by seeing posts deleted, etc, we don't worry about a PM. You guys need to be responsible of your own posting habits.
