Yesterday I was forced to create a new forum account because my old one suddenly became unusable somehow. I had to create the new account because my computer wouldn’t boot as a result of the most recent update. After going back and forth with one helpful user, I was suddenly informed that as a new user I was limited to 21 replies. Somehow that’s not my idea of user friendly.
Thanks, BS86, for the tips. It was mostly, but not entirely a discussion with one helpful user. I’d have replied, but I’m still shut out for another 7 hours.
Now it seems I can’t even figure out how to PM, or find where forum help information is made available. Ya gotta have patience with us old fogies.
I was also hit by that limit on my first day, but I also understand the reasoning why such a limit exists. It helps prevent spam.
If you were only talking with one user, the better solution would be private messages. The software even suggests switching to PM’s when you continue to reply to only one user in a topic.
The limited reply is actually imposed on various other forums and it is usually to put a check on new users. I guess the forum devs are trying to make the forum a bit more secure and cautious following the recent troubles and that is totally fine.
Please remove the comment limit on posts, It is really frustrating to not be able to get back to someone I am either helping or being helped by and I can’t even tell them I can’t reply adding more frustration to the matter
P.S Won’t be able to reply to this right away since this stupid limitation exists and I have other posts queued up that I need to reply to…
Sorry about that, with 35k users is hard to set new permissions for all, forum from 0, permissions from 0, content from 0, themes and plugins from 0, new structure from 0, however everyday we all move a step up.
