    The 40 seconds post delay is really annoying, you should remove it so people can reply faster.

    True +1 but there should be a delay of 5-10 seconds because otherwise people are going to spam

    This "cool down period" has been implemented to prevent players from spamming threads. I think it's fine as it is although it can be annoying some times :)

    The cooldown is fine, it can be a little bit annoying sometimes but it was made to prevent the spammers.

    It isn't actually 40 seconds but 1 minute. But that's not the real problem.

    They add a 1 minute cooldown the prevent spammers of... yeah spam. If they going to decrease to 10 seconds, the forums wasn't a forum anymore, but a forum for who's the best spammer of all time. Who can have the most messages with just spamming useless posts.

    The 1 minute cool down is so frustrating, can't they just lower it back to 30 seconds or maybe even 20 seconds? Everything seemed fine back then as well..

    Then what's the problem with hackers getting banned for a week? lmao

    Anyways, this has been suggested before and @zRinne used it in a thread for donator suggestions on the forum.
    As said multiple times before, it's here to prevent spam. Yes, it can be annoying if you would like to respond to multiple threads, but I always use the time that I have to wait to revise my reply (Checking for typos, grammatical mistakes etc.). I think it should stay how it is now.

    Here is the thread about donator ranks on the forum. https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/premium-forum-profiles.133547/

    Welp, I'd rather reply with more than 1 sentence, but okay. You could check for capital letters, punctation marks, fancy colors for your message :cool: ....

    ^ 2 sentences, capital letters, punctation marks and a smiley. :p

    They should make it so if you have been registerd for a year+ and have 1k+ messages they remove the cooldown, those people are trustable, aren't they?

    All I think is necessary is to shorten the delay, rather than just remove it.

    For example, a 10 second delay would be good, but a 40 second delay is just ridiculously stupid.
