" It is only a temporary limit. It is very useful as well so that we don't get as much spam. "I mean since I have over 7k posts on gb...And my accounts are linked...cant they use that system to remove it?
" @The_Laughing_Man: If Dave or the top men see it, I'm sure it would be considered. However, it will likely never be a priority over building new stuff for the site and such. Still, appreciate the enthusiasm for posting, though I have never run into the issue at hand. "Its annoying cause earlier I was trying to get help with somthing and was slammed with that even know I have near 8k posts on giantbomb.
I understand the reasoning for it but it can be quite annoying; I hit it when I first started and was forced to edit one post to respond publicly; I've also had to carry on conversations with new users via PM because they hit the limit in their threads, leading to people suggesting the same things over.I'd also be curious to know if it's relate to a number of posts, or a length of time since the account was created
What is the cut off for a new user, i.e. how many posts until the limit no longer applies?
" @The_Laughing_Man:Can I ask the name of the spammer? Cause I think I might know who it was.We feel your pain but what @cripplecaptain already said, just that you are from Giantbomb doesn't mean you can't "spam" just a week ago we had this kid who make a new thread for every part of the computer he was going to build. So although it is annoying for you right now if you ever decide to get involved in the tested community it will be long gone until then there is not much that can be done for you."
" It ends after 15 posts so you are good to go forever now. Yeah it's clear you aren't a spammer but it's an issue that effects so few people for such a short time it's not really something that needs immediately fixing. "That sounds pretty reasonable, the good of this system far outweigh the inconvenience it sometimes might present. Looking up the mod queue without it would be one heck of a scary experience.
All new members are limited to 5 posts per day untill they have 16 posts if I remember correctly. Anyway seeing as they can know if you have more thank 5k wiki points on other sites I think it shouldn't be too hard for them to do the same for forum posts.
