Whisper! Send non-public messages in threads

How to send a whisper

Whispers are a feature that allows for private discussion between forum members inside a public topic.

You can create a whisper by starting to create a reply as usual, selecting the :gear: icon in the toolbar and clicking Toggle whisper:

The composer will indicate that the reply is a whi sper by showing (whisper) next to the title.

the rest of this thread is for testing out the whisper functionality - feel free to spam it

I found out that this is a staff-only feature and I was looking at the code and it seems to be hard-coded (hard to change)

And their advice is to use private messages instead of users for private posts

A particularly disapointing part of the threads is this comment:

No whispers is staff only, any expansion of this concept will be a nightmare to change.
