    My God, why 60 seconds?! Do you know how long 60 seconds is? its a freakin eternity. Now i know its needed for a board this size, but couldnt you lower it? the 30 second limit was long enough, 60 is borderline ridiculous.

    Heh...you're just spoiled, mate. lol

    I totally understand that it's necessary, and as spam bots get more advanced, the time tends to increase to go along with it, unfortunately. Take it as an exercise in typing...really...slowly. [​IMG]

    Not to be picky, but where were you having the problem that needed you to reply or make a new topic in a gap of 60 seconds? [​IMG] I don't see why anyone would need to reply that quickly.

    And it should prevent the one on one conversations that happen on some threads that seem to play out like a im convo and not a board

    Although we've all been pretty much guilty of that

    60 seconds is a long time..some of us have tabbed browsers and a hankering for typing fast. [​IMG]

    Alls well that ends well though, just have to find other things to do in between replying to posts. [​IMG]

    i reply very fast usually, unless theres someone else responding as fast as i, my visit to a board lasts 5 minutes, and i respond in about 5 topics on average. I just hate sitting there, ya know?

    Kyoji, you need to be on many boards at the same time, then you don´t have this problem [​IMG]

    seriously, i see about both sides of the field, on one hand sometimes i do the same and make lots of replies to a few topics on the other hand i can see why they put the flood control up

    It's one of those topics where, on a major board, both sides are going to be uncomfortable. It's just hard to find a middle ground that serves both purposes equally.

    I have to admit, I can usually reply to a topic and want to reply to another topic in under 60 seconds. But I usually just have to wait a few more seconds and I can Post again.

    60 seconds isn't too long.

    I think there was a Flood Control Of 3 minutes once on another board... now that pisses you off [​IMG]

    60 seconds kills... especially if you want to post in two forums on the row... flood control... have a beer... 30 seconds is already high enough i thing but 60 can make you snooze...

    it's necessary to stop silly people who think it's really funny to flood message boards with crap.
    sometimes i even get caught by it when doing the news for the latest roms lol

    hm... question of the day... does it then make a big difference if a punk is able to spam 50 posts or 100? you've got to delete them anyways, so... just curious... what does it help to double the time?

    I guess because unless they're really dedicated, they aren't going to sit here waiting for the minutes to tick by as they post crap to the boards. [​IMG]

    to be honest... if i would be a spammer i would not care to sit there for 1 minute... i take a spam tool and let it run... which doesn't care about the time limits [​IMG]
