  • Time between posts

    Mods: could you pleeeeeease reduce the time you need to wait between posts? I keep running into this, and it's either inconvenient when I have to wait, or I don't notice and don't realise until later that a post I thought was submitted was never accepted! It's long enough that it does more than prevent double posts, so please lower it some

    I keep getting the same message, it only restricts for about a minute or two...its really annoying when I just spent time typing a meaningful answer to one thread, then try to post a quick reply to another thread I was following.

    I know why it was done though...to stop the Unstoppable.

        I concur, I had to wait to post this... Methinks the time was lengthened, Ent to stop spamming...

          Correction: the world's most patient guard would probably be The_Judge.

            I'm with Entropy on this one. Might I suggest five or ten seconds? The current time is almost absurd.

              Oh yeah, the_Judge is more patient than a rock. But definitely better armed

              I understand what it's there to stop, but I think it's impossible to really stop someone who wants to spam if their determined, and now it's getting in the way of us legitimate (hey, my parents were married ) hit'n'run rapid posters.

                Default delay on a phpBB forum is 15 seconds. This is what it is at Crackaz, and I didn't even KNOW there was an enforced delay there until I once set up two posts I wanted to appear right after each other, and couldn't hit the submits in rapic succession because of that 15 second delay.

                  It was a bit high here last time I tested.

                    I agree, it's prety irritating, becaus I often have two windows going (one for different forums).

                      Remember what happend last time an admin wasn't around?

                      I do... So I suggest to keep it atleast 30 seconds.

                        I concur, I keep running into it on occasion. 30 seconds sounds reasonable.

                        (I bet LR is running into this everyday repeatedly. )

                          The solution to that isn't to make the delay so high it irritates everyone, but to ban the people who do crap like that. I was far less annoyed by Unstoppable's spam than I am by this bloody delay.

                              Test.
