Hi,

as we're having kind of a problem with spammer registrations (I think done by cheap Chinese hands), I'm trying out to use the "Moderate User's First N Posts" feature.

My problem is that we have like a 100 sub-forums and I want to elevate certain users to access the Moderation Queue for all of these forums. Is there a better way than setting the "Moderation Forums" option for each of the moderators and activating every single sub-forum?
An Account Moderator obviously has only access to disable accounts etc, but he can't see the newest postings of new users, can't he?

Thanks for your suggestions
Steffen

Thanks for that quick patch!

So there's no way to use e.g. a group for this?

FUDforum doesn't have "global forum moderators". Only forum mods and account mods. Not sure if it would make sense to treat account mods as global forum mods?

Honestly, I don't see a reason to not do this. They can access personal data of all users. You won't give this to anybody you don't trust..
