Great to see things being developed. Personally like Custom Commands module as can use it for snippets. The Administrator’s Notes addon is useless. Should have the ability to store notes as tabs similar to a proper notes service.

For admins – notes are stored. For other users it’s a persistent pop-up (for now), displayed until dismissed (making sure it’s getting read). It may be used by admins to notify users about maintenance, for example.

Perhaps, I will add a floating panel to store notes for users.

Practice shows what useless for one can be crucially important for others.

The idea was to have a better implementation of older motd, which users could read upon login.

The useless part is the in-ability to store notes. To create notes between admins/users or one way - great, but storing notes even better. When you roam/travelling and limited with gadgets - its handy to be able to browse own/others notes in a central place.
