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 again

Rehab is on a 90 day "holiday", as he has now passed the max warnings. Down voting posts for no reason was the final warning.

Is it just me or are others noticing that more members are getting a chance to get a word in ?

Disagree. They can be attended too the following day.

It's very unlikely a member would have more than the the sum off restrictions imposed during any two day period.

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

Then the restriction will also be good for training people to ask clear, concise, well contructed questions, and for others to give clear, complete considered responses.

Kinda like a bag limit, but different.

I best say goodbye then, my brain tends to bounce ideas around, if I didn’t post them immediately then they are lost forever

11 times in the last 2 months I've gone over 5 per day. Put it down to new boat love affair but agreed.

don't rush off - the fewer balanced individuals there are, the more on the piss the whole thing becomes. 

Crikey I better wotch what I'm doing - 3 posts already. And there I go breaking the rules about bad language and spelling. Sorry teacher.

Agreed! I often wonder how reflective of society as a whole this site actually is. I realize that its more of the affluent end, due to the nature of boat owners, but still....

Must admit I’ve never heard (or been a member of) of a forum with a daily posting limit. There might be good reasons but it kind of goes against my instinct for free-markets ie let the ‘market’ judge the quality of the posters and let that determine usage patterns. We already have a voting system so you can vent your reactions easily enough - if you so choose. And the more prolific posters don’t prevent me or others posting. So I don’t really see the problem. As humans we tend to prefer fewer restrictions not more (deliberately topical I know 😊). It won’t affect me - I’m not a prolific poster - but I’d prefer this place remains unrestricted in terms of quantity and instead let quality be the yardstick.
