Recently there's been some spamming here and although so far it hasn't got out of hands, there's a few things I would like to get fixed, if possible:

- Every time someone reports a post, I get an e-mail of it. That's somewhat annoying, especially since I read all the posts here anyways. I didn't find any way to disable it myself, so...
- I think it would be easier if GM's (Global Moderators) could ban people too. It's kind of frustrating to remove spam topics made by the same accounts day after day.
- Don't remember how account creation works here, but if it could be made a little be harder that might discourage people from creating accounts just to spam (and prevent bots too). For example in our BH forums I have to manually approve every account before they can do anything, but that might be too laborious here (then again I certainly doubt we have 2700 people playing DS...).


And just to clear it up, when I said spam I meant actually spam, not the nonsense that goes on in the Spam section for example.

Global moderators can now ban people.

I'll see if I can disable emails on reported posts.
