    In order to prevent spam, new posting limits have been set in place.


    For members: Only 25 posts per day, and 3 threads per day.

    For "warned" users: 4 posts per day, no threads.


    Badge holders do not have a limit on their posts, besides the spam check that only allows users to post once every 30 seconds.

    Additional note:


    I didn't feel like making new thread about it, but just as a note. Double posts will now automatically be merged.

    They've always been against the rules, but many users still do it often.

    I was thinking of some way to allow it for badge holders, but it really isn't allowed at all, so there's no reason to make it a "feature" to be able to double post.

    If there is any reason you need to double post you can request an exception here, but odds are I'll just tell you to merge your posts.

    Still though, I kinda feel there should be no limits on this
    We have a right to talk, but not to spam
    Also I heard you can't reply in old threads
    But I see most people doing it
    Is this allowed or no?

    Great, I hope this stops some people.
    I used to post a lot, though now I rarely post, maybe once or twice a day...
    There someone that already has like 160+ posts in 2/3 days.

    Mhmm, I'm The kind of person that loves to post, but.. it isnt spam that's bad :| the limit is good, it prevents people from just posting just for points, ALSO, if it resets at 12AM, that meens sum1 can come on at 11am, do 25 posts, leave for 30 mins, come back & do another 25 ? Lol

    That can happend. Think of it this way; if the person does do that, he would be posting 50 messages per day but must wait 2 days instead of one to get 50 messages. On the other hand, if you post 25 messages at 11:00pm March 24, and then post another 25 at 12:00am March 25, then chances are that you cannot make any threads until March 27, I think.

    No, not really. I mean you have a right to move your mouth and have sound come out, but not a right to post here. I mean I could shut down the forum or make it so no one could post.

    That being said, can't you get in everything you want to say in 25 posts?

    If you have something significant to add to the thread, then it's fine. I don't like it when people post in old threads just to say "That's cool" or something. Then again, I don't like posts like that anyway. It really just depends on the content of the post more than the age of the thread. Odds are you won't get in trouble for posting in "old" threads, don't worry about it too much.

    If someone was to double post, will you have to merge the post manually or will the Forum itself detect users who are doubling their posts? I typically do not like the idea of double posting, unless someone is trying to bump a thread up for a good reason, there is no point in doubling.

    Did you read the thread?

    "Double posts will now automatically be merged. " Automatically, as in without a person doing it.

    Cool, because I was scared about that. I was warned about that before and I saw some people still doing it. So I asked that question

    Kk, Well, I dont like this but, there is a thing where, once you have made 2 threads, you have to wait 2147Minutes to post another thread!
