Hi everyone, I currently don't have a 5-minute timer. If you want to post something but can't because of the timer, then just post it below and I'll copypasta it and post it for you.

This service is currently free, although I will accept donations. Razz
But if they poasted something here for you to poast somewhere else why couldn't they have just poasted it themselves?ugh

It's not 5 minutes for every post, but when you've posted a certain amount within a certain time they ask you to slow down and wait five minutes.

I've hit that timer a few times (and with constructive posts) and it's a number of posts (not just one) within a certain timer period that brings you to it.

EDIT: And yes, clearing the cache or cookies seemed to work for me.

The limit has been raised to five minutes temporarily until we develop more effective tools to combat the spammers. We realize it's an inconvenience and we apologize for that but it is just a temporary solution and we'll lower it again in the future.

Bravo CCP. Another largely ineffective measure that will prove highly aggravating for many of your users.

If it stops him posting I think we can come to an agreement.

May be the repost limit should be random. Say between 5 - 9 mintues.

As all Fixed instances are easily overcome.

Look on the bright side, you can browse the forums on dial-up or on your mobile phone and it won't feel any different.

Just put the timer delay on the actual 'post reply' button at the bottom of the textbox when making a reply.

God knows it takes forever for some of you to stop babbling, some of you even longer before you think of something funny to write in first place.

It would mostly go unnoticed in the regular forums. Razz

Don't your poasts usually run around 4000 characters on average anyways? Plenty of time for the cooldown to expire. Twisted Evil

I truly like this 5 minute rule. It nearly eradicates those annoying one-liners, reduces the trolling just for fun dramatically, and generally increases the time spent to try to write something meaningful.

I hope this 5 minute rule will stay for good.

Akita's posts are generally about as long as mine. I think both of us have about a 1K average post. It's on eve-search for the curious.
