    Yes, the 30 second limit is awful. That confusion wouldnt have arisen if it weren't for the damn limit. *hinting for some votes*

    Perhaps the function is useful in slowing the progress of spammers.

    Don't remove it... if you removed it then some already post obsessed people will probably go down with RSI as they try to break the 3000 posts a day mark... you should certainly carry out a risk assesment before embarking on such a risky change as this.

    Things like that are put there a reason. It stops people from flooding the board and it delays nuisanse posters.

    It's not a recent change to the system.

    It basically just means that you can only post every 30 seconds. If you try you'll just get a little message up, then you can wait and repost. As most posts will take longer than 30 secs to read and respond to then you should rarely encounter it.

    Indeed. It shouldn't really be a big problem for anyone but spammers really.

    no, it is still there.

    hopefully it will be integrated into the board when it gets upgraded (soon :confused: )
