As I'm using forums more and more, I find the 120 sec wait time increasingly annoying. Here's my new idea for the devs to add:
For ever 100 posts a forumer has, 10 sec is taken off the wait time. Therefore, a forumer with 1200 posts would have no wait time at all between posts. This idea shouldn't take too long to implement.

I actually agree. I was thinking about this earlier, except master sorcerers wouldn't have wait time, but I like this a lot more.

Sadly, that would encourage people with low amounts of posts to start spamming so they wouldn't have to wait, and by the time they make it to 1,200 posts, they're gonna be full fledged spammers.

Assuming if my math is correct, even if they were on the forums nonstop until they reached 1200 posts, they would have to spend 21.666 hours. Now, also assuming these forums are moderated, if someone where to spam nonstop for 21.666 hours, I would assume they'd be noticed. Even if they didn't do it nonstop for that period they would most likely be noticed. Also, if they didn't do it nonstop it would take even longer, and I don't think anyone would want that, I also don't think anyone would want to spam for 21.666 hours nonstop, or at all for anywhere near that amount of time.

Math:
(100 * 120) + (100 * 110) + (100*100) + (100 * 90) + (100 * 80) + (100 * 70) + (100 * 60) + (100 * 50) + (100 * 40) + (100 * 30) + (100 * 20) + (100 * 10) = 78000 seconds/1200 posts. 78000 seconds = 21.666 hours.

And you wasted X amount of time doing the math.

I waste my time doing way less useful things. Have you seen my master sorcerer, WOTD list, damn wall, or popularity percentage threads? I've also made other huge threads, and my threads are all almost entirely made one key at a time.

And I waste my time derailing threads
