20 second wait before sending another PM
« on: 15 Dec 2017, 05:26 »
I understand that this is in place to avoid spam attacks but why not just make it so that another PM to the same person within 20 seconds is not allowed?

I am replying to quite a few people about the answer to a riddle just now and it's getting annoying having to wait 20 seconds to send each reply. Also considering that after you site gives me the warning message and I click the "back" button then the "Send Message" button no longer works so I have to click "back" again then click on "reply" again, then fill in the message again, and then click "send message" and sometimes it seems like 20 seconds is very, very long because I keep getting denied and have to start again. Or does it restart counting 20 seconds every time you're denied?

Anyway: a small point that rarely comes up I guess but when it does it's very annoying...

While there are quite a few user security and timeout type settings that are settable, it seems that time limit is not one of them.  Sorry!

Do we of course have the Discord chat and Facebook group if you want to have a medium that supports live chat.  A channel or thread on one of those would allow you to send infinity messages per second...

Mandle, just wait until you hit the limit of PMs/day...
I was rather surprised when I hit it (since I was just communicating with my beta testers...  :-X )
