Temporary rate limit changes

In anticipation of the forums opening tomorrow, we’ve temporarily introduced some rate limit changes:

  • Users must be at trust level 1 or higher to post a new thread. Trust level 1 can be gained over the day by naturally browsing and reading the forum.

  • Users may only create 1 new thread per day.

  • Users may only post 25 new replies in their first 24 hours on the forums.

  • The daily like limit has been increased to 200.

We’ll revisit these changes in a few days when things settle down.

  • Increased the maximum number of replies on someone’s first day to 35
  • Will increase the numbers of threads a user can create next week

The other changes seem to be working mostly for the good so far, so we will keep this in place for the time being.
