PostSubject: Flood Control...   Flood Control... EmptySun May 09, 2010 6:27 pm

I understand what it's for, but why is it in effect when editing a post? Sometimes I will post and then afterwards I notice a misspell (like instead of typing their I put there) or grammar error because it doesn't always underline with a red line. Then I go to edit my post but then I have to wait 30 seconds before I can repost it. I know it seems like a minor issue but I'm pretty impatient and I don't see the point in having to wait when I'm merely editing a post as apposed to adding an entirely new post.

Or sometimes I just want to edit it to rephrase something I said to simplify it or make it seem more professional. Like how I rephrased the paragraph above 3 times.

Example: I noticed I put "apposed" instead of "opposed", it's a minor mistake but I'll have to wait 30 seconds when it takes like 2 to fix it.

Sorry for the inconvenience but trolls/spammers find it even more of a hassle then you do and that's what it's for.

Yeah but isn't there a way to set it to just prevent post spamming and not when editing a post?

Not really that I am aware, but it is a troll's inconvenience, but as a member here that sometimes edits, I see no problem with waiting.

I've only posted about a dozen times so far and have run into this problem once. I do agree that having to wait 30 seconds will significantly reduce spammers and that 30 seconds isn't that long to wait. I'm typically a grammar freak myself so I know what you're talking about though

I think it should be at least reduced seeing as how registration is like always closed..

Ok. Since registration is ALWAYS closed now, and MLD makes people accounts can we take off flood control? Or atleast reduce it...

I agree with reducing flood control. If I notice a spelling error in one of my posts, it bothers me to no end. Also, if I feel like I've worded something poorly and found a better way to reword it, I would like to do so before someone else replies so as to avoid confusion.

Considering that this forum blocked all registration, it shouldn't be such a big deal anymore.
