So after I switched to a new account, I noticed that the PM system does not work for me, I could send PM's for the first few minutes but then it says 'Flood control is enabled on this board, please wait for 3600 seconds before replying' which is weird. I would like to know if this is just a problem for me or is anyone else experiencing it.

Mods please do not ban this account, I got permission from Girish. smile.gif

Maybe you should clear your cookies, then try to send a pm.

It's working now, mods please lock, thanks for the answer Foley.

EDIT: No, it's not, I can send a pm to Sgt. Foley but not to lzw3, what's wrong?

Whats does your box say you have space wise? Mine is a hair over half full.

If it's at 0% or you do have room, try the cookies thing, if that didn't help, I'm not sure man.

Well it does work now, thanks guys. Mods don't lock this topic because I will post here if the problem occurs again.

EDIT: And it's back, I can't PM a member called lol232, can the mods please look into this? I tried deleting the cookies but that does not help, I also have alot of space in my PM box, So I guess I have to wait for a day for it to work properly. sad.gif

It would appear that new accounts are subject to a PM flood delay. As in you can only send a pm an hour.

Thanks for the reply Andrew, So I have to wait for a day before I can start PM'ing freely again?

3600 seconds = 60 minutes

So, basically, you can send one PM per hour.

It took about a week for me when i switched accounts for the PM system to go to normal, notice you can always reply to PM's without the flood control

I believe it's designed to prevent pm spamming as a lot of new members sign up just to advertize, if their a PBM that are not welcome here then they can be banned before they get the chance to send many pm adverts to their site

Was this put in place after those reports of the one who flooded my PM inbox with a message every second?
