This is completely speculative, but just writing it up since it's come up a couple of times.
It would be nice to be able to annotate special users in a way that shows up in the transaction logs (maybe a special icon, portrait border, etc.), similar to how the badge systems work on some forums. For example:
- Administrators (could be hard-coded)
- "Phabricator Gold" Members
- Verified celebrities
This could also just be an attribute on projects, like "members of this project get a specific badge". The main value of this would just be making these users easily identifiable without having to go dig around -- in the case of administrators/employees this helps users avoid confusion, and in the case of contributors/gold it could be a bit of a way to show off.
I'm not sure how useful this would be overall, but we can collect other use cases if any arise and scrap it otherwise.
