    It's a tad annoying waiting a whole day to post something, especially if your last post was somewhere late.
    With that in mind, I propose only having to wait 12 hours to post, as that still does prevent spam (I presume that's what the 24-hr wait was for) but at the same time you are able to make more posts (Say I wanted to ask a question in 2 different boards)

    Very sorry for the inconvenience. This was indeed put in place to prevent massive amounts of spam that some former less mature members sometimes liked to engage in. However, it should only apply to newer members so once you've been active for a bit more that will no longer be an issue.

    But you're not supposed to ask the same question in 2 different boards :P Ask it in the correct one instead of two incorrect ones.

    I'm against it, this rule has been established even before I was here(2009..?) and well I never heard anyone complain about it before so it may or may not be just you.

    @Minox is this rule only for newer members? I never knew :o

    It's not a rule, but rather a limitation for newer members.

    When I said "ask a question in 2 different boards" I meant to ask a different question in each board, lol. (For example, something about DS in the DS thread, and one in Xbox discussions)

    Oh, okie-dokie.
