Flood Protection

Unread post by ~Z~ »

No, not from hurricanes or breaking leeves...but from too many posts in too short of a time.

Lately, there were a few complaints I'd received about too many quick posts by the same people in the shoutbox in a very short time period, scrolling things off the page quickly. Along with that, also sometimes there are accidental double posts that go through, so hopefully this will eliminate that. I've set the flood protection to 15 seconds for now.. this will make you wait 15 seconds between making posts, but I doubt this will effect many legitimate posts.

I hand't seen this before.. not sure how I missed it.. but can you back it down a bit. i type fast and it really has limited me on how I can answer people in the shoutbox. back it off to like 10 seconds.

I actually backed this back down to 5 seconds as I got Russ and Trevor under control..I think... :)
