Just got a message saying I can't post again so soon after having posted another. WTF? When did that appear? It sucks. If I'm a supporter, that shouldn't apply to me, as I'm not posting spam. yuk

Interesting. I just ran into that "problem" as well...

I can see the point as it prevents bombers and spammers.

No big whoop as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather a little protection against idiocy though I can see how it might be annoying if I were to regularly post numerous posts with a typing speed of a mad man / god.

Which I don't.....

This could be a problem for me. I usually post about twenty session reports at once. How much time do you have to wait between each post, now?

I have no acutal reason for this but I'd assume it's not a limit on posting images, files, session reports or reviews but rather a limit on forum posts only.

It's really kind of unusual that this has not been implimented before this. Almost every other forum in existence has this from the get-go.

If it is a limit on uploading the above mentioned things then I'd definately agree that it is a problem as most people do "batch" uploads of images and such....

But I don't know if that's the case.

Admins what's up?

Only about five second delay is required between posts. It is indeed to make things harder for spammers. We recently had a case where a spammer was able to post more than a few messages in the few seconds of time between when he was discovered and and when his account deleted.

As a fairly new member I was wondering how you go about contacting the site concerning account problems?
