    Error: You cannot post more than 1 message per 15 seconds

    I got this after refreshing the page because it stalled. Was the one post per minute replaced?

    No, I think it's a glitch. I freakishly got that once, too, though I don't fall prey to PPM.

    "though I don't fall prey to PPM"

    but don't VIPs and higher have 1post per 15 seconds since a few months ago?

    What are you talking about, Raven?

    The post you made and I deleted because it served absolutely no constructive purpose. [face_plain]

    Kyp, first you flamed Wes, and now you're trying to stir up trouble. We meant what we said about tightening up in Communications. See you in 24.

    OPP15S is a restriction for everyone.
    OPPM is a User Restriction (does not apply to VIP and up).

    When a user posts within 15 seconds, the first rule is applied, and when he posts within a minute (but after 15 seconds), the second rule is applied.

    Really? Now, that's interesting


    EDIT: But I just tried posting twice really fast and still got Error: Only 1 message post per minute is allowed, not the 15seconds-message.

    I was pretty sure that was the rule. If you really want to test it, make two posts in different windows and hit submit at the same time.

    I've done that. I didn't get the message. I actually did it with three posts all at the same time, and all were posted.

    That's exactly what I did.

    TwiLekJedi = regular user
    error = 1ppm
    Night = mistaken

    AmazingB = gone

    Nope. I was a manager and I fell prey to that. Before I stepped down I tried to post two messages at once, but only one went through. The other got the error and as such, I couldn't get the post to go through until 15 seconds were up.

    I've also faced this rule since I became an administrator. No one is above it.

    Well, I'll be the annoying person and test this.

    And voila! [ul]* Error: You cannot post more than 1 message per 15 seconds[/ul] :)

    And it could be a server issue to give the db enough time to handle the messages and what-not from a user.. and to keep it from erroring up.

    I read this thread and had to try it... so in two browser windows I wrote up two different replies to two different threads and hit the post buttons right after another... and got the "only one post per 15 seconds" message. Fascinating. Not anything I would ever do under normal circumstances certainly. I rarely even make two posts in the same minute. I had to look around for awhile to find two threads to post in simultaneously.

    EDIT: So either Night was in fact right... or due to my belief in that and the hour (I'm in pacific time, it is 3 am here) I hallucinated the 15 second message... which I suppose is possible... I need to go to bed. :p
