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.
