"You cannot make another post so soon after your last. "

this restricton is killing me - what is the limit, like 10 minutes? i answer a private message, then i cant post a reply to another topic.

couldn't this restriction maybe just be put in place for new users / abusive users?

i understand its probably a plugin and likely not very tweakable, but just had to say something - been killing the forum for me and i just haven't even be replying half the time.

thanks

edit - as soon as i hit post:
"You cannot make another post so soon after your last. " foiled again!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

on that note - haven't really seen too many 'abusive users' lately.
maybe the restriction is working?
maybe i'm not visiting the right forums?
maybe its just died down...

No abusive users as all first posts need to be approved by me, so I'm able to catch 99.9% of spammers. Very time consuming but it keeps things quiet for you guys. I had that posting flood limit put in when we were getting some of the bots posting up 30 or 40 posts at a time, but I'll get that removed as we won't need it anymore.

Has this been removed? I just got the "You cannot make another post so soon after your last." dialog.

If you changed your mind, what's the time limit?
