PM wait/send message button
I am seeing the PM 'Send Message' button displaying 'Wait' for the period of the time set in anti spam - posting speed allowed setting.

Sourly this is not intentional, or is there something I don't understand?

Re: PM wait/send message button
It might be very useful to know what version of YaBB you installed.

YaBB 2.5
Re: PM wait/send message button
Actually, I've seen this too, on 2.5, but didn't think anything about it as when I'm sending a PM, it's generally as admin.

@oldbrad - is this happening when you are logged in as admin or does it also happen if you're logged as a regular member?

There was a bug in earlier Version. Update your YaBB Forum to 2.5 AE. Wink

Re: PM wait/send message button
OK, just a couple things.

A. I have not examined the code, but a 'PM' is a 'POST' operation (just a very special type of Post), so I will not be surprised if the Speed Limit applying is is the case.  Just as a note - effectively - almost all 'submissions' in most scripts are actually post operations using 'forms'.  This is a braod generalization, but in YaBB it is the case.

B. - Is this the control you are referring to?

Speed Posting Ban
Activate speed post detection and banning?      
Posting speed allowed (in sec)      


Have you tried either de-activating that control, or varying the value to confirm your suspicions?

C. oldbrad, could you please add that YaBB version info to your profile in User Control Panel here on yabbforum.com???  Its useful at many support and administration levels.

Thanks and Good Luck
Cool

Yes.
Obviously something I don't understand though! Does that setting prevent the first posting for the specified time? That's what it appears to do to PMs ie can't send until after 5mins if the value is set to 300.

Both and determinately the cause.

Re: PM wait/send message button
I can confirm that - when I set Minimum time between posting from same IP and Posting speed allowed both to 60 seconds, the PM window had a 60 second wait time before the send message button came up.

I'll test which one is doing this momentarily.

Done:
Posting speed allowed (in sec) controls how long the wait button is up.

Not sure if this is really a bug since I think the idea is to keep PMs from going to email queue too close together. Maybe.

Re: PM wait/send message button
Thanks Dandello,

I appreciate it, I am (your favorite expression for overloaded) right now. I should be dug out in a couple days.

As for the Topic of the PM Speed Bump - OK - then it will not benefit oldbrad to upgrade, as that is the current controls method in YaBB 2.5 AE.

When I get clear, I'm going to look at that code. (as if that will do any good  Cheesy)

thanks again
Wink

YaBB 2.5
Re: PM wait/send message button
My own suggestion is to simply set Posting speed allowed (in sec)  to something like 30 - which for most people is less that it takes to type a sentence - and not worry about it.

I recall someone saying that spammers like to simply paste their messages in which only takes a few seconds. And anything that makes them wait will drive them away.

I completely agree with that assessment Dandello.

Re: PM wait/send message button
Thanks guys. At least I understand what's going on now. Not so much a bug as a 'feature'.  Undecided
