Why do I have to wait 30 seconds to post in different threads?

    Hey chaps,

    Is there any chance the 30 second rule can be applied to threads rather than fora? I would have though it reasonable to be able to post in separate (especially on the 'game' ones) threads within 30 seconds. It's really frustrating me that I can't have a speed match with steve and mezzy & chris (amongst others) because of this stupid rule!

    Puhhhhhhlllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?:(:(;)

    Sorry Mikey but stevey (and where are you robby?) and mezzy are the queens of the speedy fingers (albeit not that accurate) and the 30 seconds gives everyone chance to catch up!!!!!!

    Hey there mods, in your lofty towering palaces and so on. Could you possible report on this? I don't mind having to wait a bit between posting in the same thread. I know and understand the reasons. However, is it really necessary to have to wait as you pass between threads? I do a lot of 'thread hopping' and I find it supremely irritating to have to wait like that. Sometimes, the brilliant one-liner or witty repost gets overtaken by someone else and it loses its edge (if not its entire point!)

    Pretty please??? I've put a link on my new website....:)

    and sometimes he's the first to post on the last post thread, only to find that because he hit the wrong button his post was actually second post from last post on the last post thread!

    If he passes the post before the post is past will the mods pass the past posts?

    As long as he obeys the 30 second rule

    Rule 31 states that the next rule regarding 1 second longer than 29 being long enough to wait before posting the next post to seek pass post approval of post passing mods.

    is the 30 second rule similar to a 30 centimetre rule?

    Only when trying to park a car.

    Is that because it takes a female more than 30 seconds to park and a man can park within 30 centimetres?

    Poor Mike, by the time he manages to park his car he's got a ticket for breaking the 30 second rule
