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.

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.

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

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?

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

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.
