    What does, "You have to wait 4 seconds to perform this action" mean?

    Edit: when I tried to post this, it said 30 seconds, then posted it less than 30 seconds later...?

    You can't make multiple posts in a row at the same time. There's a specific time period before you can make another post. Think it's a minute? Not sure.

    Even on different threads? Okay, anyways. Thanks!

    Also, what is the "adoption" thingy? How does that work?

    Edit: @I Are The Internets ? ;)

    Edit 2: If you edit, can people see what your message was while you're editing, or is it "unposted" and "reposted" ?

    I believe it was 30 seconds prior to the update, I am not sure what it is now. @LAJ_FETT do you know?

    This is from the initial post in the adoption thread:

    Contact @Lady Belligerent who is the WNU adoption cordinator for more information.

    Once you save your edits, the text is essentially reposted as edited. Moderators and Admins can always see edited text. Non-moderators can not.

    I think regular users have to wait 30 seconds between posts. VIP and above don't have that restriction.

    Can you "like" someone's avatar like you can their status message?

    I believe Admins can, other moderators cant. @LAJ_FETT Is that accurate?

    We'd have to be added to a conversation to see the PMs. However, in the past if a complaint was serious enough the Head Admin has used other means to look at offending PMs. That hasn't happened in quite some time though.

    Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to sort the 'search' function results by date please?

    I dont believe we have a filter capability on the search feature. For much of the last several years, technical limitations have prevented us from even deploying a rudimentary search capability. Only recently have we enabled the search feature. Whether or not we could adopt a sort or filter feature in future, we will have to discuss with our technical IT people.

    Ok, thank you for explaining. I was just checking so I can try and make sure I don’t post anything already posted recently, but it is easy enough just to scroll back a few pages.

    There may be way of doing a search on google that gets you to where you want to be. See

    Does your list of likes get deleted over time? Or can I go somewhere to see my entire list?

    You mean a list where you can see which post got how many likes? I don’t know such a list. But theirs a list of trophies you got and a list for what actions you get which trophy. Some trophies are handed out because of a certain amount of likes.

    Does this help?

    If you hover over your user id in the top right corner there's a 'Likes you've received' entry. Go there for a list of likes. Looking at the number of pages I have it looks like it's the whole list.

    Okay. I tried that, and it stays at seven, even when I've gotten at least a hundred more likes. I'll check it out, though, thanks

    Edit: Oops. Nevermind, it's working now.

    Generally, we can figure it out if we need to, but there is no specific requirement to inform us. But depending on the use of your sock (name for alternative accounts), it may be a good idea to do so in a PM.

    Please note that in the event any of your socks are banned for any reason, you would be prohibitted from using another sock during the period of being banned.

    Yeah, I mean I only have one, but just asking 'cause earlier there was this argument about whether or not my sister and I were the same person with two accounts. Wanted to know if I had proof if I needed it :p (we even both got on and posted at the same time. Still didn't believe us ;) oh, well. He might now)

    How long do drafts for posts stay saved for please? I know for long posts it is probably safer just to draft offline, but was wondering how the draft function works here...
