Goner Message Board / Goner Records / Anti-flood protection
Posted: Jan 28, 2011 2:08 pm | Edited by: Scott
 
So is this feature meant to keep people from intentionally posting multiple posts, or is it meant to stop accidental re-posting of the same thing? If it's supposed to be for the latter, is there anyway to drop the resubmit time down to 10 or 15 seconds? It seems like that would do the job without making me have to wait so long that my hilarity wasn't so hilarious.

It also keeps me from posting on different threads within the allotted amount of time. For Christ's sake, somebody do something!

Years ago, the site had some jokers running script attacks, flooding the board. That's why it's there. Dunno about throttling down the time frame, but a minute really isn't that long.
You're totally not that funny, either.

I have chuckled once or twice.

It does suck having to wait a minute though.

The real issue is that the Goner server is water cooled, and posting a whole lot of stuff at once heats up the circuitry a lot. Anti flood protection isn't just a figurative term. Too many posts and we risk blowing a hose or gasket and making a real mess of the store. Do you guys really want that?

Also ridiculous. He thinks in terms of Eddy Money irony. What else do you really need to know?

Harlan hired Scott's "occasional beard" to play in the Fuzz. What else do you need to know? I know I'm disappointed in Harlan, I tell you what.

scott all you have to do is modify the board config.php file to change the setting to a shorter timespan.

I don't have access to do that. Why don't you knock it out for me. 30 seconds, and time limit doesn't carry over from thread to thread.

Speaking of funny, my name is scott, and I'm a big horsey.
