Have you noticed a pattern of what causes it? I'll try another reply right after this one.

I guess what it's saying is that you need to slow down! laugh

Let me make a few posts to see if I get that message. Is this happening every time you respond or make a new thread or both? Need a little more information.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:35 AM

Okay, let's see if this goes through.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:32 AM

ok, how can you respond to a post AFTER me yet get above me??

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:32 AM

It just happened to me when trying to reply to you right after my 2nd reply here. First time I've seen it but I haven't been around here much.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:37 AM

no issues here. Let me try starting a few threads.

Could be a symptom of the problem? The warning comes up when the Reply button is hit BTW.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:38 AM

Just did it again trying to respond to you here, it's not consistent. The times are off in this thread.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:42 AM

I used Quick reply and also Reply twice now...no message/warning

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:40 AM

After posting my last reply, it said I had posted it 4 minutes 6 seconds ago, it should have just said around 0 seconds. Something's wrong with the time stamps.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:41 AM

well, it's not a consistent thing because I'm not getting it at all.

Could it be PEBKAC? laugh
Posted by: Jim_

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:46 AM

Okay, my 4 minutes 6 seconds ago post now said 2 minutes 11 seconds, which was the correct time frame.

Wonder if it's a cookie thing. I'll try clearing them.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:47 AM

PEBKAC. LOL. I doubt it.

It just took me three tries to respond to you.
Posted by: Jim_

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:53 AM

Mmmm, fresh cookies, let's see.
Posted by: Jim_

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:54 AM

So far so good. Cleared cache too just for giggles and stuff.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:55 AM

Fine still.
Posted by: Jim_

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:55 AM

Just did it again to me, well it's not local cookies anyway. No more time to play right now either, gotta' run.
Posted by: Jim_

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 05/31/10 08:57 AM

And this time it said I posted my last reply 2 minutes 47 seconds ago, when it should have said 0 seconds.
Posted by: MacBozo

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 07:01 AM

Just happened again. I replied to one topic and then tried to reply to another topic. Must be a 60 second timer? Did it again with this post in an entirely different sub-forum from the other posts. PITA!
Posted by: John Rougeux

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 07:03 AM

Neil will look at it soon.

And it's not a universal thing because I haven't gotten it at all.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 07:15 AM

I'm thinking it's a "safety" switch to keep post bombers at bay.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 09:41 AM

Beyond Michael, are there any other reports of this? (Trying to figure out the pattern).
Posted by: Lea

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 09:41 AM


No problems here, either. I'd think if it were a global fora thingie, more peeps would be in on this thread. Sorry, Michael. Trivia's working for me, too. Well, except that Papa knocked me outta the top spot by three lousy points.

Well, I don't want to blow it off -- I just want to see if there's a pattern.

Michael: Can you try a different browser?
Posted by: MacBozo

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 09:52 AM

I can try with Safari. It does seem to be occurring rather randomly, though.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 09:54 AM

Just checking.... Got it here while replying - hitting Submit.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 09:55 AM

Seems to want 60 seconds between posts.

Actually, it's about 30 seconds.
Posted by: MacBozo

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:02 AM

In Safari now.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:02 AM

Testing, testing, testing.....
Posted by: MacBozo

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:03 AM

That posted right away.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:06 AM

FWIW, Firefox is faster on this site than Safari. And, I got: You can only make a post every 0 seconds. Please try again once this time has expired. when I tried to post this. (Still in Safari)

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:18 AM

Interesting.

We have a theory, but it's going to take some time to look at and come back to you.

Beyond, Michael: Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks!

Neil

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:23 AM

It's OK. I'll just try to wait 30 seconds between posts. wink

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 10:39 AM

Me too, I posted above what I've tried and some symptoms, and it didn't fix it. Cleared caches and all applecentral/mactech cookies. Look at the post times in this thread, something is funny with the time stamps sometimes. Sometimes when I post when It takes me back to my post instead of saying 0 seconds ago for time posted it says a couple of minutes or so.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/01/10 11:33 AM

Not me, but then again, I'm not a spam..I mean like MacBozo wink smile

No issues here at work on a different ISP/browser/OS.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/11/10 09:06 AM

I got the 0 second warning on my first post a little while ago.

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/12/10 05:39 AM

I still haven't seen any issues here other than sometimes it's a little slow.
Posted by: MacGizmo

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/12/10 07:16 PM

The site has gotten slower with every "update" for me. And I'm on an obnoxiously fast cable connection.
Posted by: neil

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/12/10 10:59 PM

Fyi Given the hardware we are now on that just cannot be. It's got to be a coincidence.
Posted by: John Rougeux

Re: This is getting to be a PITA - 06/13/10 06:19 PM

It's slow today on mine. Takes about 7 seconds for a page to load...and I'm on a 10Mbps speed.

The interwebs generally are kinda slow tonight for some reason.
