    Should we have a 50 second message about posting. I think that we should. There has to be some rules that will keep people on the board :coughcoughkingcoughcough: in check. If there are no rules then everything will go to chaos. And that would be a terrible thing. This also set rules for the war, beacuase you can't have a war without ground rules.

    That definitely should stay. I have less than great experiences with forums that disabled that.

    mab, it is that you are only allowed to post one message on the board per 50 seconds

    I don't really see why it should be 50 seconds, but I can see why it is needed. There are some people that just post and post until their keyboards start to complain, and the 50 second rule keeps the MBserver from complaining also. :D Whatever you do, don't get rid of it!!! (Just my two cents worth!)

    The 50 second rule stays (I say!)..... In fact for a while there I was wishing for a 500 second rule..... I got tired of reading post-whorish-3-word-no-valid-idea-clog-my-email-box-with-crap posts! No offense now - many of the self named post whores in DO have good thoughts and post them! I'm not offended by post-whoredom in general.... I am annoyed by "haha that's funny," and very disappointed by folks who ONCE UPON A TIME had something to say, people who were clever and witty with real personality.... who now type no more than a few words each junky post JUST to up the numbers near their name.

    I'll step down off the soap box now..... anyone else wanna take a turn??

    I voted no for the 50 second rule, mostly because my computer is pretty slow and it takes me way longer than 50 seconds to write and post something, but on the other hand, yes I agree that some people post stuff even when they have nothing to say. O well.
