    Yeah but if you had to be a member for so long and have so many posts and if you do all of that and then flood the forum you get banned and reset. Problem solved.

    The software just isn't that complex I'm afraid. The 'stoptalking so much shyte so very fast' function we have is as good as it gets xx

    It is actually something we could look at. It would require an additional usergroup and reputation/time served/posts made based promotion of kinds, but it can in theory be done.

    That said, I can't see too many instances where it's absolutely necessary to post within 30 seconds of your last post; it is after all a discussion forum, and not a live chat room.

    Yep, don't think it'd be used frequently enough, ideally people's contributions and thoughts should take 30 seconds or so to articulate :laugh:.

    I guess im only noticing it more now with the FF All Time XI because usually im waiting 10-20 seconds to make my next post.

    If its only affecting me then no sense changing it but I thought maybe it was something others saw too and would like the freedom around.

    No biggie.

    It's not really a problem now. It used to be when FTAMR was busy. You'd make a post then click post and there'd be 5/10 new posts and some you'd want to reply to. Now you're lucky if you get 5/10 a week in that thread. Haha

    There's no native support for Emojis on the software as it stands. Here's to hoping it comes as part of an upgrade...

    This may have been mooted as I haven't read all the thread, but would it be something to consider to merge the three football league forums into one? Also encompassing the Football League Trophy (similar to how the non league forum is everything non league related). I know sometimes I look to start a thread on a subject but it's more FL based than any of the individual leagues so don't know which forum to use.

    The upshot would be one potentially busy forum rather than three fairly quiet ones which then encourages more active users and active threads.
