    Hey Guys, Camel here.

    Y'all know when there's like, 5 different things you have to reply to on your profile page, and it would normally take like 1 minute to do them all, but since there's a cooldown timer, you have to wait for 5 minutes before finishing all of your replies?

    Well I think that's quite annoying, especially since its your own profile page that you are replying to.

    I know its an effort to reduce traffic so that the website doesn't have to load 32894723984 different new things every second, but its still reeeeeeally annoying.

    My proposal is the following: for ONLY when you are posting on YOUR OWN profile page, you can bypass the Cooldown timer. IF, however, this still is hard on the website, then change it to this: when you reply to a bunch of people, the posts are not seen until 1 minute after you post them. so every minute your page is updated, and in that minute, it could load all 5 of the comments you posted, instead of them all being loaded in immediately after being posted.

    Thanks for consideration,
    Camel

    I like the idea, but spam would be increased, as someone could just copy/paste links on his profile page (status), and, after a minute, this messages would appear in the forums. I think that cooldown exists basically for this reason. :p
    Maybe adding this only for replies to comments in your profile page, as spammers don't usually have messages, because they join just to spam. +1.
    P.S: If you are helper, why don't you suggest it to developers and admins? You got contacts m8 :D

    +1, you should be able to post on your profile as much as you want.

    PS: Is the 20 second cooldown to prevent spam or to keep the website from crashing?

    The cooldown has been reduced to a minute, to further prevent spam.

    To the OP, please provide a screenshot.

    If the first part doesn't work out... I like the second part of the idea where it shows up after like 1 min.... But overall:
