Or whatever. Basically there's a 30-second delay after you post, or edit a post, before you can post/edit once more.

Can it be turned off? With a bigger forum I think we'd have problems with post spammers, but, like. We're not. And we don't.

All paladins are now an enemy of the Last Horse?

Guess im off to exile in the swamp of sorrows until Arther-wan Kenobi brings me Darthas Vader's kid so I can teach him the ways of the Light so he can become a Jedi like his father.

When 900 years old you become, look as good, you will not.

It's a fifteen second-delay. I don't think it should be changed. It limits the amount of damage a spammer / jackass can do, and, frankly, if someone's posting more often than every fifteen seconds, I don't think their posts are very valuable to the rest of the board readership.

no, sometimes you want to edit your post that you just made. it's annoying to wait for 15 secs if you type something stupid.

He wouldn't even be worth the name Ara-non Kenobi, so don't try exiling yourself in Tanaris, either.

After some thinking, I have relented. It's now a five second flood protection, which should be shorter than even the puniest of corrections should require.

Huzzah! Just tonight I noticed a little typo as my post was going through, and was sitting and waiting for fifteen seconds or whatever to enter the edit, and that's ten extra seconds or something that I will never have back.

For some reason, they love this thread. I have no idea why.
