Vote here on whether the 30 second limit between posts should be removed. Pleae vote against this inconvenience by clicking 'yes' above.
This feature's primary focus is to prevent automated spam-bots from posting at what would be an unstoppable rate otherwise. Without this limit, the forum could become clogged with hundreds if not thousands of automated spam posts within the space of a few minutes (if it didn't crash the server first). It also serves to curb the number of one-liner responses to posts and chatty-style dialogue which can't be a bad thing.

This post limit is a beneficial aspect for the majority, it's only really an inconvenicence to spammers and people who talk to much. To remove it would be silly, as rehaydenuk just pointed out, so it should just be left alone.

d knows what he's doing.

When i first got it, i thought it was completetly different to any of their others and wasn't sure if i liked it. After a few listens it's starting to grow on me.

I can see everyones points of view, it just annoyed me the other day so I thought a poll would be fun.

Oh well. If the majority don't want a change (and the change isn't practical, anyway), then I don't mind. I didn't really think about how it may be useful in preventing spam, although on occasions it is annoying.

Fine by me too. If I think about it carefully, when it isnt one o'clock in the morning like when I started the poll, it is probably a good idea to keep the limit.

Three votes is pathetic...but I suppose it is 5 past 1 in the morning. I should go to bed.
5 past 1 on a Friday night indeed.
