Well this sucks.

I posted a thread in OOP and now tried to respond to this thread and couldnt.

I dont know about other forum posters, but I wont hang around here posting if I can only post once every 5 minutes. Its way too frustrating and makes the forum feel unusable to be honest.

This is a really bad move and I dont see myself bothering with this forum anymore if this is kept in effect.

I cant even put into words the frustration I feel over this right now. Its not just a inconvenience, its frustration over the forum now being unusable for everybody who types fast.

What happened to you guys?

Its frankly amazing that I still have a average of 10 posts per day considering I only tend to post on the weekends now. But I used to post heck of a lot of posts a couple of years ago. I think I even had the highest user yearly post count at some point. 2006 maybe? Not sure. :)

Im sure there also was 1 or 2 interesting posts somewhere in all that...

CCP could even say that 99% of users are positive to this change. Of course the 99% are composed of users who dont visit the forums and who doesnt post very often, so it only really messes with the users who actually posts on the forum.

Im pretty sure they could get that figure up to 100% if they keep this going.

ughIf you are going to stick with this badly thought out idea, can you post up a sticky thread to warn all potential posters with genuinely serious replies, that they need to make a copy of that reply, just in case the 5 minute timer has not expired yet (it is EXTREMELY annoying when you have to go back 1 page to find your response has been totally deleted, so you have to start all over again *sob*Crying or Very sad )

5 MINUTES ?!?!

It should be at least 15 !

At least then people would have to spend some time thinking before they post and the ADHD squirrels won't remember what silly one liner they wanted to squirt out on a thread, reducing their spam, too.Very Happy

Hell this change would have been great during the time that the forum would log us out like mad.

We could probably also use proxies to bypass the timer, but I'm lazy

I honestly rather they try something else that doesn't hurt the poster this bad. Because with the amount of accounts they have, they can just use separate accounts to spam.

It's not an inconvenience at all. Its a godsend present from heaven it is.
So some people finally have 5 min time to think through their reply.
If only COAD could be raised to 24h.

You can bypass the timer, it isn't really that great. It just hurts the people who actually post on these forums.
