Re: Posting limit reached

My maiden initials, lol! (omg)

Just wondering how so many of you who are (supposed to be) working full-time post so much. I have an excuse - I am retired and live in the sticks

Problem is, comes a time when you have to choose between 'drivel' or 'helpful advice'.
No prize for guessing which one I choose when I get to limit
People needing helpful advice shouldn't be on this forum. This forum is for people who already know everything, or think they do.

Some people also use it as a backup repository in case Wikipedia closes down.

I consider it more as an invitation to think before posting ...
if we did that we wouldn't have half the fun.

The limiter only kicks in just when you have something really important to say
that would explain why it never happened to me then.

Just wondering how so many of you who are (supposed to be) working full-time post so much.
You see, I sit in front of the computer the whole day drawing. The drawings of the Ausführung phase are so heavy that the 3D rendering takes more than 10 minutes to finish. Plotting an A0 takes 15 minutes.

And I get so bored I just read the new posts every minute to forget about the freaking lines not being like I want them to be...

Re: Posting limit reached

Is it precisely 2% for the week, or does it kick in early to account for posting momentum? Rivals OB and Porsch are neck and neck at 1.96 and 1.99% and both are awfully quiet .

Not sure if this is some sort of safety device or whether I'm the first to reach it but yesterday, I was prevented from posting as I reached my daily posting limit.

Has anyone else had this before? If not, do I win a prize?

Today's limit is over 60 at present.

Nobody looks under threat of that but three are close to the weekly limit of 2%:

1st - 153 - 1.99% - porsch1909 -
2nd - 152 - 1.97% - Ouchboy -
3rd - 151 - 1.96% - ashishshah -

Daily post quota exceeded...It is like isolation for me!!!

Daily post quota exceeded. Click to see posting averages.

What else to do when you are sitting around waiting than to be penalised for the amount of bull that you can talk in an afternoon!

Nuff said!!!!

Oh, moved to the naughty bin as well. I was not complaining because of a support issue, I was complaining just because I was feeling put upon. I suppose this thread would do just as well in the Off Topice General Off Topic or Funnies section.

Soooooo, can I please request the rest of you high number posters to get on with it so as to bring down my percentage so that I can waffle some more?
And yes, that is looking at you:
2nd - 23 - 2.68% - Caviarchips -
3rd - 20 - 2.33% - miniMia -

Re: Daily post quota exceeded...It is like isolation for me!!!

Can anybody explain this too me? I did a search but did not come up with anything except stuff about quotas for importing stuff into Switzerland which did not seem like the problem that I am suffering here. I mean if I have been moved to the support section, away from this being a complaint.

And that will be my post for the next while then.

It means that even a lifeless sql server has realised you don't have a life and is trying to get you to get off your PC and go do something.

Which would be a fine thing for it to suggest if it knew what my current situation was...lol.

But really the server is making that decision on how much other people are doing? Not what I should be doing.
