    Ok, so I get it that it's annoying when new members join and spam staff profiles begging for help. I thought about this and thought maybe we could have some kind of automatically genearated message system to fix that. So say a new member joins. Seconds after they register, a message is auto generated on their profile saying something along the lines of "Welcome to the forums! If you are here due to a problem or to report a player, please go to the appropriate forum section and post a new topic there." If this cannot be implemented, I suggest that staff hide their online status.

    or, just make it that new players cannot post on staff profiles, simple.

    (Not trying to be racist) Spanish people will not understand though, so they will resort to spamming our inbox.

    Maybe there can be like a language option or something.

    If staff dislike a comment posted on their profile, they could just delete it, or do what multiple players have done already and disabled posting on their profile to people that they aren't following.

    If a user is spamming the forums, we have a tool for that, we can delete all of their conversations/messages/threads and/or ban them. Its common-sense not to spam (especially if you are muted for spamming).
