Could you add Alt text so that hovering over the image displays the text?

I doubt that many casual viewers know what the "Report this post" icon is for without hovering. ;)

We could do both. Add a class to the post container (without any styling included for proSilver), and add the line to the mini-profile.

I'm not against the idea, but I personally wouldn't like something that takes up more space :/ We should try to keep the theme clean, especially now that it's responsive.

Since this is only for moderators and admins to see I don't think that we require anything explanatory (they are supposed to be advanced users), such as a whole new line at the mini-profile or a space for a new icon.

Can't we do anything with the space that we are already using? Perhaps we could add a warning graphic on top of the avatar, like a watermark... although that requires an avatar to be in place... or we could add some warning box at the top of the post's content (it takes up space but at least it's part of the post)...

I agree with this. It is best to give style authors the ability to use the class even if it is not used in the core style.

In /viewtopic.php, change 'POSTER_WARNINGS' => $auth->acl_get('m_warn') ? $user_cache[$poster_id]['warnings'] : '', to 'POSTER_WARNINGS' => $user_cache[$poster_id]['warnings'],.
