View Full Version : Just in a flood-didn't even get wet!

07-24-2002, 03:34 PM
When I just tried to post, I got a message that the board administrator had enabled flood protection and that I had to wait 60 secs. I was instructed to use my reload button instead of the back button so I wouldn't lose my post but I lost it anyway.

I noticed that there are about 1000 new members since I started posting in April-that is awesome growth, are we going to start experiencing times when the server is too busy to handle all of the requests?

Are we going to need a bigger boat? graemlins/silly.gif
(For those of you younger posters-see Jaws.)

There is a time limit which has to expire between the time you last posted and the time you try to post again.

If you violate that time period, you will see that message.

In other words, the boards are trying to prevent someone from posting, hitting the back arrow, posting again etc, etc... blah blah ;)

I'd be surprised if I ever posted anything fast enough to violate a time period. I always triple check and edit my posts. I am kind of particular about that. I am always being accused of taking too long and hogging the computer. graemlins/silly.gif

Thanks for the response though.
