just an idea here, but there should be some limit on the number of threads one person can produce in a certain time period. this idea stems from the fact that i just witnessed someone making 5 different threads all wrapped around the same topic, and i think a thread limit would help to eliminate spam like this... maybe one thread per half hour? or maybe once per 15 mins... something like that leave some feedback on your ideas

That is a good idea... someone just made 5 threads about the same subject... this would stop that kind of spam... it wouldn't be anything different than waiting 30 seconds to post another comment.

Yeah there is kind of something like that, but not as good. The 30 second rule kind of helps against spammers so they can't post as fast as usuall.

Well, not very many people make a whole load of threads about the same thing(i saw them all too), so I don't think it should be around 30 min.! Perhaps 15 yes, that wouldn't make it such an annoyance as sometimes you have an idea, but will have to wait forever to post it, which a lot of people have no patience and aren't willing to wait that long.
However, I do think there should be a limit, after all if someone tries to make a bunch of topics again, they probably won't wait around to make their 3rd-5th one after waiting 15 min. each. My take on the subject

yea, even a 5-10 minute waiting period would do wonders... you dont see it often, but when people spam topics like that... it gets rly annoying

thanks for the feedback so far

those spammy topics don't pop up much, and are usually ignored, killed, or are now are enjoyment pleasure. [Before spam attacks].

The POST thing is a BAD problem. Its rather annoying, and to make it worse I say it should only be 10 seconds. Because to be honest, A spammer may not be able to post as much, but I say if theres a spammer, he'll spam on a thread until he's shot. I've never seen spammers go for multiple threads, and If I was a spammer I could even do that WITH the 30 sec. rule.

For making threads, I'm with that.

I agree with the idea.
I think about 15 minutes is fine.
