    Aw gosh darn! can't make two posts within 90 seconds of each other..awww.

    Hi!
    Dang. This is new (to me, at least):

    vBulletin vBulletin Message
    Sorry! The administrator has specified that users can only post one message every 90 seconds.

    It was an easy one, too. That's why it was so close to my other post's time. Blah. ;P

    It's going to take me 4ever to get to 1,000. I may weep openly.

    Yeah I've been seeing that ever since I started posting on WHT ages ago.

    It's supposed to stop double-posts, which ironically does not work.

    You can actually bypass this by creating three-twenty six accounts then right after posting, logout,login with a different account.... :|

    When you get caught, say it was one of your cosuins... :p

    Actually, it is used to discourage the kiddies from spamming the boards, and works rather well.

    Exactly.
    Double posts are low on the list of priorities.

    It take me 90 seconds to read a whole post and then reply to it anyway. Sometime I run into the 90 seconds posting range, and I had to wait until all that 90 seconds is pass before I can post.

    I think the "your message is too short" message is just a tad bit more annoying.
    Haven't been on WHT for 6 years!

    Yeah... you can make a perfectly relevant reply in less than 10 characters.

    The 90 second thing is a bit too long as well ... 45 or 60 would be sufficient.

    I can imagine the admins digging up all your info and checking on how many accounts you have right now....

    On topic, I do find it sometimes a little bit annoying. But since I surf with multiple windows, and am normally viewing other sites as well, 90 seconds is pretty ok. Of course I would prefer it if it were less.

    60 seconds would be nice
