In most forums, the flood control is 30 seconds, but here it's 300 seconds for me.

I read in some posts that said the flood control for this forum is 60 and not 300.

I suspect that it's because I'm a new user (it is my first day here) and they wanted to prevent spam bots.

Is it 300 now for everyone or just new users? And when does the 300 go back to 60, if not?

Is it a certain amount of time like a week or a certain amount of posts?

I think this was due to the recent rash of trolls who posted inappropriate images on some of the topics.

I think it only applies to your first 10* posts.

*not sure about the exact number

it has not been 24 hours yet, and the cool down reduced back to 60 for me.

i think it's 20 or 25 posts.
