This answer is posted by a staff member, but you have to go to the user's profile to actually see that.

Can we add [Staff] labels to staff member flairs like on all meta sites? [♦ Mod] labels aren't necessary IMHO, rene and I are just experienced users of the API, nothing more.

    I confirm I did visit the user profile as well for the exact same reason.

  • Agreed, that sounds quite useful here as staff often act as an authoritative source on API matters. Apr 21 at 17:17

    Agreed that this seems useful. On other Meta sites, I believe the Mods can add the status-review tag to a Meta post for Staff to review a change request. Does that work here, or perhaps not since this isn't considered a Meta site? Not sure. Apr 27 at 19:51

    @NotTheDr01ds that would work, but it feels rather strange to put a [status-review] on my own request. Of course I can ask rene :)

    @NotTheDr01ds StackApps is a little special (in a good sense of the word) in that regards - kind of like MSE, the mod-only tags are present despite this not being a Meta site. Apr 27 at 20:02

    Just confirming that the status-review tag on this post did add it to our radar. :)

Tada! 🎉 This was an easy change on our end, it turns out we already had functionality to turn this on for individual sites. Our code doesn't define Stack Apps as a Meta site so Stack Apps doesn't get it by default, it's a special case.

    I'll make sure to code in a special case to our special case so that the joke is preserved 🤠 bool IsMetaSite => IsChildMeta || IsMetaStackExchange || (IsStackApps && question.Id != 9377)

    Happy to hear that - I love how the [status-review] tag gets it triaged and in front of us so quickly.

    Always nice to be able to verify that it works at the very place one asked for it. Thanks for the quick fix!
