time delay between posts

I know that 20 seconds isn't a lot, and that it helps prevent spammers etc... but might we bring it down to say 15 seconds? I know that being on broadband and typing 80wpm make me get the "you posted again too soon" message a lot... and then you get the "you may have already posted" which in turn makes you have to copy, leave the thread, re-enter the thread, paste and post...

Just curious if we can turn the time delay between posts down a bit

Sorry it's something we've had in place for a while to keep people from just hoping thread to thread and such.

I figured as much, just thought I would ask.

Re: time delay between posts

If you're making a post in less than 20 seconds, you should consider writing more

Re: time delay between posts

Even at 80 words per minute, it takes 20 seconds to write under 20 words, and that doesn't even include opening and reading a thread, and considering what to write.

haha Alright alright I'll post at least a full paragraph for all threads from here on out. I do think that perhaps you should look into becoming a teacher, you certainly brought me back to high school with that last one that's for sure haha
