    Members like knotme and wheels often have very good advice and they will then answer questions and add another post as they have remembered something
     
    If they have to wait 24 hours to post, will they remember to do so?

    Five posts...that could restrict discussion to the detriment of the site.
    Thinking of threads where help is asked for, thanks are given, questions raised and answered... That would quickly use up 5 posts.
    Restricting posts to a number of threads per day might be a better solution.
    One down, four to go

    Rehab. You are the cause of this rule. You alone, as I see it. You know this, you read IT’s post a few weeks back saying his preference was for you not to spam the site,  but it wasn’t currently against site rules so he was thinking of an effective rule to prevent it. You replied saying ‘preference noted’ then continued to spam the site with mostly illiterate dribble. 
     
    Now you down vote people saying it may restrict people using this site for the purpose it was created - to talk about boating, when, again, you are the cause of this new rule, because of your constant posting of dribble and new threads mostly not relevant to boats. 
     
    You’ve wasted IT’s time making new categories for topics and considering a new rule no other member necessitates the need for. I guess to save himself time on applying a rule evenly, he’s had to make a blanket rule over everyone, including people who make multiple helpful/ useful / insightful posts in one day. You are literally the minority, despised in every group in society, who ruins things for everyone else. 
     
    You’ve posted on this thread saying you agree with the new rule. If you think max 5 posts a day is a good idea, maybe you should have self imposed that after IT (and many others) said he would prefer you not spam the site, and this wouldn’t be an issue. 
    IT, your a patient man, must be hard and annoying to run the site with such non sense from one poster. I’d have permanently banned him long ago, but you have my support for running the site as you see fit, for the little that’s worth.

    Thanks
    Funny times we are in, it seems some are struggling with lock down more than others.
    As an infrequent poster here I am surprised I am interesting enough to have a follower. One guess who that might be....

    No need for a new thread and thanks for the down vote, I do believe it is the first one I have ever received.

    i told my ex i still "followed" her
    she reported me for "stalking"
    ....
    eeek, just checked i also have a "follower".......  R
    but not any longer
    clicked on my name to the left
    then below that where it says followers, selected options
     then  "don't allow others to follow me"
    so now the 'system' will no longer be reporting on my actions

    RushMan got a reaction from w44vi in forum glitch   
    Is there an option so clicking on the thread title takes me to the first unread post rather than page one?
    Clicking on the circle achieves this but I sometimes miss!

    Is there evidence of trolling?
    I would be inclined to let it ride until you have evidence that one of the accounts is for nefarious purposes

    RushMan got a reaction from Fish in So one of these almost hit me yesterday out in the Waitemata....   
    Have the kids actually been told of the ColRegs?
     
    My first introduction to sailing was Port gives way to Starboard, Windward gives way to Leeward, Power gives way to sail
     
    I didn't encounter the term "ColRegs" until I moved to New Zealand in 2013, before that my keel boat sailing was done on the foredeck so didn't really need to know then as the back of the boat didn't listen to me anyway.
