Title: 60 seconds between postings is just too long!
Post by: 2linby 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.

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.

Yup, Doug showed up on Thursday at the Londoner.  Now I understand his negative karma rating.  LMAO  KIDDING!  We had a fun night chatting bikes.  In other words, it was a normal bike night gathering.

Yep, you can easily see the one guy in a sweatshirt, but the other guy troweling straight in line with the tree is in short sleeves.  Here's a blow-up.  Of course this pic wasn't taken until a little after 8 am.  It was still dark at 6 when they started.  They're power troweling it right now.

Oh, and those are live oak trees.  They are always green even though most of my grass is now brown.

That's awesome Rev!

Yep Slybones.. about 300 something miles north of him we had 40-ish goin in at 5am and 65-ish comin home at 3pm..
thermals and jumpsuit on the ride in and underarmor and fieldsheer lined jacket on the ride out!
But you do have some great apples up there!  :))

Uh... speak fer your DFW self. LOL  Down here, with 95% humidity much of the time, it's almost as wet on a dry day as Washington is on a rainy one.  75 will still get a good sweat out of ya.

I'll take the reasonably arid 105 we get in Dallas over the humid 90s that so many places in the north get.  I'm from North Dakota, and I prefer the summers in the daytime here.  The thing that bums me out about Texas summer isn't how hot it gets  in the day time, it's how hot it stays over night.  "An overnight low of 92" isn't a LOW.  LOL

Your right Rev. I have been out of the south coast sweat bowl for a few years and forget about what liquid air does to a fellow!  I forget to save them little desicant packs from my beef jerky to put in my socks so my toes will quit molding!  :-\
