    Why has TD brought back that annoying 60 second wait rule between posts?

    this one...

    Maybe because they are sick of Scampi answering his own questions before anyone else has a chance?

    it hasn't been brought back, to bring it back we would have to get rid of it which we have never done.

    Can you chuck the 20 seconds between new posts searches while you're at it?

    I agree with KW, that 60sec is highly annoying

    make it down to 30sec

    I don't give a shit, my fingers are battered and numb so it rarely affects me, in fact can we raise it to 90 seconds

    The general search function is shite on here esp. when the keywords have no matches and you have to start again but wait 20 seconds.

    30 seconds between posts seems much better too

    Three posters constitutes a majority?

    My fingers are fat mangled swollen gnarled and battered, that makes me disabled and I take priority so the rest of you will have to suffer.

    Also I've now taken the time to post 3 times Frankie so that cancells you out

    Vocal minority, Frankie. That's the way the world's going these days. Those who whinge the loudest make the policy.


    Now let's reduce those waiting times, this is a forum, not an NHS hospital.

    No need, the traffic seems to have slowed down to that now anyway

    Well, there's 21,046 members, so they're going to have to do better than 3.

    The delay is there to give you enough time for a second thought before posting.
    Use that time cleverly..
