For some time now, Steam Workshop modders and mappers have been asking for a bit more oversight when it comes to submissions. These requests have been the result of phishing scams and other less than savory activities. Now, it looks like the community is getting what they want.

Over the weekend, Global Offensive players noted a change in the submission process. Now, when creators submit something new, a banner pops up telling them "Moderators need to approve the latest version of this item before it will be visible to other players in the Workshop."

The change has been confirmed by Valve -- in a statement to PCGamesN. The confirmation also notes that as a result of the changes, creators will now have to wait longer for their content to appear on the Workshop, but it should help to get things under control.
