Director Messages

Another privilege that notesfile directors have is to flag their postings with a "director message", a single line of text which appears above the standard header. Directors often use the message to flag official postings, such as statements about policy or notices that an inappropriate note was deleted. The director can specify what the message should say, but a single message has to suffice for all situations since there is only one director message per notesfile. Typical messages range from the serious ("OFFICIAL MESSAGE") to the humorous ("Not Operating With A Full Deck").

A director can toggle the message on or off for any posting, even those written by other people. For example, in a notesfile used to report problems, a director might set the message to "FIXED" and use it to flag problems that have been resolved.
