Are you suggesting this wait for posting twice in one thread, or even posting in 2 different threads? I could definitely envision a scenario where someone wanted to reply to 2 different threads within 90 seconds (maybe not 30), especially if they already had 2 threads open in 2 different tabs. 90 seconds is a long time.
Agreed it should be a 5 second wait between posts in different threads, and 90 second or so wait for posts in the same thread

I don't think there should be a time limit on posts, unless there is an issue with people abusing it. I can recall a number of instances where it was beneficial to be able to make a few posts in a short amount of time, and it can get complicated if there is a ban on it.

Is there a present danger in keeping it how it is?

FTFY

I prefer the old amounts per page (especially since I mostly use mobile), mainly because it will better keep track of where I'm holding in a thread
i agrre with yo ssi regarding this
-Posts per thread page default view, changed from 15 to 25
but i kind of like this
-Posts per board page default view, changed from 15 to 40

Another idea might be anyone with over x amount of posts should be considered bot free, and would have no search restrictions etc

Imagine how confused you all would've been if I would have had to wait 90 seconds between these posts?




Now which smart alack is going to say, "and here's Exhibit A for a time limit"?!

I propose limiting posts to once every 24 hours, if you want to post more you need to spend 10 DanCoin. DanCoin can be reloaded on Binance or KuCoin, and eventually at CVS. Alternatively, you can earn 5 DanCoin for every unsolicited like on your posts.

Actually, I think they both have a 5 second wait.
There is
What about the amazon master bots?
Very rarely do I get the error ;D
Agreed it should be a 5 second wait between posts in different threads, and 90 second or so wait for posts in the same thread
90 seconds is too long in the amazon thread

Suggestion:

After you click "show me the post", an additional warning, "are you sure?" then, "no, for real, are you absolutely certain?"

And a similar warning if you're quoting someone you have muted, and if you click post after you see all those warnings, a hammer comes out the screen and whacks you on the head.

So can the admins account.. Not impossible but not likely.

Agreed as mentioned:

Perhaps an exceptions for the select few.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I was thinking specifically the name on the Amazon master threads for their specific thread. Obviously if there is a need for any other user / thread, that should apply to.
