"You have exceeded the number of posts you can make in a 5 minutes period. Please try again later."

If it is my first post in the whole day?

This happned when posting this also. What is happening? This is my second post in 3 days. okay.nice.It happened again. How many posts I am allowed in 5 minutes? Again. Again.

There are other Threads about this problem.

It is part of the Forum's attempt to thwart spammers. I believe you are only allowed 1 post every 5 minutes until you have accumulated 100 posts.

Is it possible to personally verify with a mod or similar that we're not spammers in an event to be able to carry on a conversation with multiple threads?

What's annoying is that an edit of a post also counts as a post...

I made a mistake in my post, went to edit it and was told I was posting too much.

Replying to someone that had replied to me was also a chore, having to wait five minutes to give a 'yes' answer to a simple question.
