I've been in a 'contributing' mood the last hour and made a few forum submissions.

Then I get the following after clicking Submit:

You cannot make another post so soon after your last.


Forum admin': Come on, get real. Either flag my posts for later inspection (potential spammer) or let them through.

If a user has a number of contributions that are non-related, why restrict them???
Allow this forum to grow rapidly! :)

I had that joy as well. As a good faith contributor... you'll also discover that your user account expires after a year or so and is removed from the forum. Then you can joyously create another account so that you can generously share your contributions.

I guess for the Diptrace staff: "Customers do not know best."

Just to explain my experience... I have been using this forum for at least three years. And I am very grateful for the generosity of the Diptrace staff and members that support this Forum.

But when I saw MrHox's issue, which I have experienced two years back or so, I could not resist sharing my experience from last week when I tried to log in under my user name kjhuebner. It failed. I tried resetting my password under my email address and that too failed.

Yet I have not changed my email address in 10+ years and I always use the same user name.

Perhaps there is some process (automatic or manual) that deletes accounts in the database -- maybe when a user has not logged on in a year or so.
