60 seconds between postings is just too long!
« on: December 18, 2010, 05:25:13 am »
Hey for us post whores the time delay between postings of 60 seconds is just too restricting. I mean how the heck can I become a crotch rocket if I have a governor on my throttle???  HA!

Default value?  For the right price we can see about arranging for your account to post 1 sec before you even read the thread.  :P

I heard that once you reach "crotch rocket" the governor comes off.
Well...even if you fall on your face you're still moving forward.

I'm not sure if the sixty seconds is good or bad. I've had times (on a very similar forum you might know of) where I would want to post something about 30 seconds after the last post. Then get into the dreaded fight to post at all the second message I wanted. If that's the case here. Then yes it is a PITA. But normally, the 60 seconds isn't such a big deal. I just try to make sure I wait before I post to avoid fighting with the forum!  :D

People worry about their post counts less when the "ranks" associated with post counts are less insulting.

I kinda like the whimsical nature of the rankings and how they relate to 2 wheel progression and prefer to think they were done for fun and not to be insulting.

But you miss my point   ;).  As an example; If I have a lot to say and a little time to say it, well then the group surely will be the lessor for this speed-bump.

sigh..... So misunderstood........ >:D  I'm just a soul whose intentions are good............... oh lord please don't you let me be misunderstood......  ;)

I didn't imply that these ratings were insulting.  I think that some people MIGHT find them insulting.  I don't.  I could not possibly care any less.  LOL  But the perceived status DOES drive some people to post stupid crud just to get their post count up to "upgrade" their rank.

Gotcha... even without the ranking titles, we've all seen how forum post ho's look to bolster their count with "stupid crud."  Throttling the ability to post does help reduce this.  I have no problem with 60 second wait time. It takes me at least that long to read a post, consider a reply, and key it in.
