Please lower the flood limit

Hi;

Please lower the flood limit from 1 min to 30 seconds. It is very annoying. sad

If this is not possible for all wheels then please allow the 'Real Member' wheel with this privilege.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

I do not think he will change that as it is already a privilege given to mods.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

Real Members also need that privilege. You do not understand the annoyance because you are not one of them.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

Do you think that I was not once a member like yourself, then a Real member? Of course I understand, I also captured the post title as a Real member with the flood control.

Don't you think he should lower it?

Re: Please lower the flood limit

Opposing the lowering?

I get it! You do not want any one else to reach 78,193 posts.

Yes and I will continue to oppose it.

I get it! You do not want any one else to reach 78,193 posts.

Records are made to be broken. They serve as incentive to the people who come after them. I have toyed with the idea of capping out at a certain maximum say 10000. After that there would be no more. That would put an end to the post battles and make more quality posts as you say.

Just for you to know I would trade the whole 78000 of them for one more tongzilla post. Or the mathsyperson gf post, for a few more teakettle posts, yea quality posts like that.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

My second line was a joke. Do not interpret it too seriously.

Facepalm....

Re: Please lower the flood limit

That does not matter, I am not offended by the comment. My post totals as I have told someone else a long time is due to the fact that I am and was in here more than anyone else. It is only natural I would be among the leaders. I would point out that I am not among the best over at the SE.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

I'm not after a huge post count. I want the flood limit to be lowered because I think my time is precious.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

The Flood Limit of 1 min between 2 posts is really very irritating,I whole-heartedly admit it.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

But you already have a huge post count. If it were awarded to Real members only then every other member would be at a disadvantage would they not? If it is awarded to everyone then the forum becomes an instant chat which could not be moderated.

This is a point to be noted,Agnishom. What Bobbym told is quite Rational.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

You could lower the flood limit from 60 to 30 for all members. That would not make it an instant chat.

If it were awarded to Real members only then every other member would be at a disadvantage would they not?

Why do moderators have it, then?

Re: Please lower the flood limit

Then when a spammer or GIB gets in here he could post twice as much filth?

The first rule:

This is a Forum, it is not instant chat. Leave your message, and come back later (hours or days) to see what responses you got.

The forum was originally meant to be for posts and slow reponses, with hours or days between. It has already become a semi chat with hundreds of threads of chatting. We need more?

You could implement kaboobly tags for the chat threads.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

I do not think that can be done.

Mods need it because when they have to moderate they must do it quickly.

Moderation is about editing, not posting.

Re: Please lower the flood limit

Sometimes he must post a message quickly, to stop an argument perhaps.
