    I am getting post warnings to wait to post if I do a back to back post, I have cleaned and checked not only my device but tried it on my phone as well and still get the error to wait before posting again.

    Also saw that after a certain amount of time I am not able to go back and edit a post.

    Is it possible admin can look into this please, and if anyone else is having these types of issues , could you please reply to this thread?

    I think it's always been that, after a certain amount of time, you can't edit your posts.

    Thanks Marcus, this hadn't even been a full day on the edit, and also still getting the wait to post warnings.

    You have to wait 30 seconds between each post... I get that sometimes when I'm posting pics Miz Whiskey. It gets real annoying real quick, too. I think it has something to do with trying to cut down on robot spammers. :confused:

    Maybe because you aren't a mod any longer? Maybe mods have the magical powers to post back to back without the delay and can always edit posts? Maybe? Its the only thing my limited self can think of. :)

    edited to say Your Welcome.... how rude of me for not acknowledging that... :p

    I have noticed that I no longer always have an edit option after posting a post and noticing an error I need to correct.
    Not always but sometimes.

    I always had the delay and post edit deadline until I became a mod, so maybe that's it.

    Until about a week ago the "edit report" always popped up for me on a new post.
    Now sometimes it is only "report".
    Never been a mod.
    Something changed.

    Maybe my microwave is causing it?

    I did always have a mandatory delay between posts in the same thread though.
    Something like maybe 15 -30 seconds?

    Prior to becoming a mod I didn't have those issues, I had an older lap top but thanks everyone, I'll deal with it:wave:<3

    The adjustable post delay is, as mentioned, to stymie spammers. I suppose it could have been recently extended and you just never ran into its prior limit setting.

    Or...

    The edit timeout is something else. I've always been amazed that VU leaves what appears to be an infinite setting on post and title edits.
    I just now test edited a three month old post... no problem.

    Perhaps leaving the Mod/Admin group (when did that happen? ;) )... some flag(s) have been mistakenly set on your now plebian account. :p

    I'd ask the team to double check though if it were me.
    That's a lovely post count you have there... it'd be a shame if something happened to it. :eek:

    :D

    It's possible various somethings have changed on the site just recently.

    My adblocker no longer works here, but I was guessing it's my comp and the next reboot or ABP update would fix it.
    I could be wrong. ;)

    eta: I'm getting other, odd, behavior as well.
    Long lag times and pages "jumping" for no discernible reason.

    I'm betting it's a cloudflare or host issue. The site has been pokey to respond since this weekend here and there. Crap poops up like a "Do I really want to like this post?" page, "You must wait..." pages, incomplete or slooow page loads (especially smileys) etc. A lot of page reloading required some times to get things done.

    I have a hardware thread I was unable to edit for a price reduction, that area you used to be able to edit your posts no matter how long ago you started or posted in the thread, so something was changed.

    I had wondered how that would go considering the head mans obvious political ideologies.
