Agreed.Flood Control is good to use because there could be spammers out there who might join this forum to spam like advertise everywhere around the forum. I've seen it happen multiple times on other forums so I don't think its a good idea to turn it off completely maybe lower it down to 15 seconds.
This is exactly what causes duplicate posts in some forums.I usually post by having multiple tabs open to threads that interest me and reply to them in rapid fashion.
To be perfectly honest with you, the only way I could duplicate what we were seeing with flood control disabled was by delaying connection to the other servers/sites and either refreshing or posting the same link multiple times. And that is the key, any delay in connecting to the external server/site could cause someone to believe there is a problem causing them to either repost, or hit refresh (and respond to a message something like 'The data must be resent').How though? They aren't the same threads and if it doesn't post the thread or seems to be slow in responding, I usually refresh or perform a search before trying to start the thread again. So you're saying that regardless of these precautions that it would still possibly start multiple threads?
