    Delay between sending private messages

    Could something be done so that those who have been members for some time do not have to wait 45 seconds(?) between sending private messages?

    I realize this was intended to inhibit spamming, but it's a pain to write a message and then have to hang about waiting to send it.

    Yes, I know to just open the forum in another tab, carry on and then come back to the first tab once the time is up, but I doubt everyone does.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    For the Advisory Group and Contributing Members only, I have changed...

    Message Throttle Quantity
    This limits the number of messages the user can send within the 60 second Throttle Check Period ... from zero to 5


    In other words, you can send 5 new PM's now every 60 seconds, but regular free members are still subject to a 60-second delay between PM's.

    Regards,
    Doug

    Just got the "This forum requires that you wait 90 seconds between sending private messages. Please try again in _ seconds." message again.

    Hmmmm ... several posts deleted...

    Come on guys .. get along or go elsewhere.

    I don't have the time or energy left to manage the sandbox.

    Some folks still need to read about our Forum Etiquetteicon policy they agreed to under our Terms of Service Agreement" they electronically signed when they joined.
