Limit Posts per topic

Post by heinrich_k » Thu Mar 15, 2018 1:40 pm

Hi,

I had a functionallity in 3.0.x or 3.1.x that allowed to limit a user to make no more than one post every hour, per topic.
Is this mod still around in 3.2.x ?
I can't find something similar and not sure, how it was named.

Best regards,
Heinrich

what is the purpose in this? the whole point of having a board is so people can post. the more the merrier.
unless you are talking about spammers and there are several ways to stop them without limiting normal user's posting.

Well, if you want to have a meaningful discussion with several participants you want to slow things down to, so everyone has an opportunity to read and write a post themselves and not get the topic hijacked by two or three people who are able to post every minute, creating several pages of posts that just drive away other potential posters.

But that is not per topic, but board-wide, right ?
