Minimum Wait Time Between New Topics

  • Just a small sugestion...

    Considering the mess I just recently saw on the Tech Support forums with someone (most likely a bot) flooding the Forum with new trash topics every 5 minutes or less, I'd say it would be wise to create a rule here so that each registered user can only create a new Topic every hour or so. Maybe you could add some goal points like for each 10 or 20 red points, reduce the timer by 10 minutes to a minimum of 10 minutes wait time. Personally I don't see any reason why someone would create more then one topic within less then an hour and I think it's a good starting point.

    It's a cool idea and we'll consider implementing it in the future if the attacks intensify.
