So, I was answering some questions, and asking a couple on another thread, the thread was varied and had several interesting issues.
I answered a couple posted questions, and then was about to post asking about a solar panel mentioned…
Get a pop-up saying
NO MORE THAN THREE CONSECUTIVE POSTS ALLOWED, WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO ANSWER YOUR PRIOR POSTS
Now I understand that this is not always an issue as normally there is significant activity on the site so there are always answers flowing back and forth, so I’ve never run into it before.
Why such a poorly considered policy on a USER based forum?
On slow days, is it desirable to limit multiple contributions to strictly forum admins?
Consider that threads have many more than one, two, or three posited issues or questions, typically many more, running in the same topic, so it is not unusual to have that many pending questions, without responses.
There, that’s the PG version of what’s going through my reactive mind right now…
I contribute to SmartThings, I contribute to Eufy/Anker, I contribute to Amazon, Microsoft, and dozens on Reddit.
None of these forums limit user interactions, they take other measures to prevent brute spam attacks, but otherwise open. Why? They realize that if a contributor is abusing their posting privilege, then that user is dealt with by the forum moderators.
Please adjust your limit please. Thank you so very much!!
