90 second delay in reposting hicup
« on: October 29, 2021, 07:50:42 PM »
While trying to add a link list second post to today's header I came up with this 90 second delay to repost message . This was new to me . I was trying to make sure my second post followed my first post so the Link List which was long this week and would have shrunk the header image to a smaller size . After waiting awhile I tried again , still getting the same message . This went on for 8 or so minutes . Then I waited 90 seconds and it worked . Point is the message then should have read , not " 90 seconds before you can repost " , but " 90 seconds before you can ATTEMPT a repost ".

It's so that the Viagra dealers can't spam the forum ..

It can also prevent double posting, on the rare occasion that the Enter key bounces, or other glitches occur.  For those, 90 seconds may be a little long, but a short delay isn't a bad idea, even without spammers.
