In recent times there has been a marked pick up on the site in the number of spambots, as well as a big increase in flooding and post racing. While many of you may not have noticed this, it is in part due to the fact that the staff are having to spend a lot of time cleaning up after these posts rather than improving the site, taking part in the discussions and generally making the place run smoothly. For this reason we've decided to activate the flood control of 30 posts a day. Ordinary members will almost certainly never run into this. To give you a rough idea, our most active staff member (no prizes for guessing who that is ) makes on average 6.47 posts a day, and our busiest member (again no prizes) makes 8.69 posts a day. The post limit is there purely to make our job easier and the site better. Bearing in mind the rate at which new content is posted, and the fact that this new limit works out at around 900 posts a month, most of you guys should never even encounter it. If the site ever grows so large that more than 30 posts a day becomes reasonable, we will of course reconsider the limit. We've set the bar deliberately high - and created more work for ourselves in doing so - so as not to constrain you guys.
