Very cool, another add-on I missed from VB, though I had made that one myself. May I suggest at some point adding an option for a minimum post count, below which no thread is made? The purpose is so members/moderators can be notified when long time members are banned. No one cares when the occasional spammer gets banned, no thread is needed if they have less than 10 posts for example.
