    Balance between getting spammed to death like we are at the moment and day to day Posting

    As I said there, it's a global setting. The only exemption in vBulletin is for admins/mods. There is no option to set it for other usergroups. So as much a pain as it is, it can't be helped just for now.

    It is a bit of a pain when I post a mag daily and add a link to the mag daily section and you have to sit there for 25 secs.

    No back to 30s apparently, as the spam'nami seems to have passed.

    And we're back at 60 seconds again. A major pain in the a$$ when you're posting mag comps!

    Currently at 2 minutes between posts, and with no edit button either, I feel this will be a long day

    I have just posted twice on our challenge thread and had to wait 120 seconds

    That is really going to slow down the comp posters

    I just tried to edit a post and it said I couldn't edit it anymore as it had been longer than 0.5minutes. Not a big deal for what I wanted to add, but could get annoying when posting some comps, as it's often easier to go back and add in details/answers/T&Cs etc, so 30secs isn't long enough to get that done!

    Not liking the editing change, is this going to be permanent? The amount of spelling mistakes I make!

    Yes edit is back but now I'm having issues with title length!

    There seems to be a lower character allowance
