    Am I the only one who gets the warning on these forums saying I cannot post a new message so soon after my last message? Do I need to shorten the wait time as its annoying anyone else, or if its just me then I'll shutup! :)

    It's fairly common practice for forums to have a wait period between posts - 60 seconds is standard. It's to prevent flooding i.e. lots of posts being posted at the same time, sometimes by automated spam scripts. It would probably not be a good idea to remove it.

    I wasn't going to remove it, just considering reducing the time it waits :)
