    30 seconds between posts?

    The 30 seconds between posts rule has been slowing me down recently. 25 seconds would be much nicer.

    0 is great for a bot. 20 is much better than 0. 30 can be annoying, I am one one forum that is 1 minute. I give them one post a day, if that. I pulled our business sponsorship and forum discount because the new admin was anti vendor. My buddies and I paid for the forum cost, when we all didn't renew they had to resort to big boy pop up ads and click through ads. They asked for us to come back, but they put rules in place like "Vendors could no post in the classifieds" "Vendors could post 1 post per day in a special vendor classified area" that there was no traffic in, and no way to create traffic with only one post per day.

    Defense in depth is always better. Even if the current measures are 100% effective, it is still worth some insurance just in case.

    I'm waaayyy too slow for it to ever be an issue for me. I know, because I never got a warning.

    Slow can be a beautiful thing I guess. I have to say, I love the new system....truly a bot's worst nightmare.

    Moderators and Admins are exempt from the limit, so you may have posted two posts within 30 seconds, but of course did not get the warning.

    Maybe we could add the AQ members to the no or very low time limit.

    It's a place where Guides and Experts up, can go to discuss various forum issues. They have a few extra options in addition to the Aq forum.

    I believe AQ members have the "TFP Guide" moniker, so whichever group that is associated with. Doesn't really affect me, I end up reading and editing my responses over and over so 30 seconds is a distant memory by the time I post something.

    Edit: See, took me so long that Patrick beat me to it
