Thread: Reduce PM wait time

Hybrid View

  1. Reduce PM wait time

    why 1 minute is kept between 2 PMs

    plz reduce or keep no waiting for sending subsequent messages.

    I've reduced the time to 15 seconds.

    Please let me know if that works for you.

    Can you reduce the time between reporting posts also ? 60 seconds is too long...

    I think the current report post waiting period is fine because once you report a post, I would assume the moderators check all other posts by that individual.

    I report posts on a very regular basis. I notice a lot of spammers come around at 2 - 6 AM EST.

    I guess it's the time bots wake up

    If that's when they wake up, then we know when they sleep...

    You get the rope. Haha, but seriously - I noticed most of the spammers are just ripping data from Wikipedia - I'm sure you've seen all of my reported post things in the moderator's section. Is there an automated tool that does this, or do you think it's a manual process?

    As I've said, those are Bots, not real people, which means that yes, it's being done automatically.

    Oh. I didn't know if we were talking about the same ones. :P

    There must be something we can do to put an end to their efforts. Have you guys looked into that vBulletin modification that makes users check a box that says "I believe this is the best location for this thread." or something? Maybe that would work. (Just brainstorming here.)

    That mod won't help much, bots are getting clever by the day.
    Until we start getting a MASSIVE amount of spam, I don't think we should worry that much, after all we need to keep our mods busy.
