Posting limit reached

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?

Re: Posting limit reached

LIB famously reached it a month ago, it's to stop users from flooding the forum...

Re: Posting limit reached

If you reach 4% of the daily total of posts, or 2% of the weekly total, you are prevented from posting until everyone else catches up.

It's to prevent one or two voices drowning out those of the rest of the forum.

I think it's an excellent idea.

It depends on how lively the forum is.

One can hit the limit quite quickly on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Apparently...

Re: Posting limit reached

You can always check your posting levels here. http://www.englishforum.ch/xtra/posting_averages.php

The cut out level is 4.0% of the total posts in a day or 2.0% in a week.
The exact number will vary depending on the total number of posts in any given day.

Currently, the limits are around 30 posts in a day or 160 in a week

I consider it more as an invitation to think before posting, lest we squander our meagre rations on pointless drivel and flaming.

As you can see, it works a treat.

So that explains Wolli's "why make a single mulitipost when I can make twelve individual posts"!

If all the members who only post occasionally, posted around 10 posts a day, the limit would be over 1000 instead of 30

Re: Posting limit reached

One more reason to be parsimonious in my posting ... average a wee bit below one post per day

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

The limiter only kicks in just when you have something really important to say

More annoying than the 10 character limit?

Or the lolcats?

Or everything being marked as read while you're perusing a long thread?
