  • I didn't even know this was a thing!

    I think it's to reduce spamming but also keep the points given away at a reasonable number.

    Crazy though. You taught me something new about GaG, and I've been here over 3 years.

  • That's actually been here for more than half a year. It only happens if you are really fast about giving opinions.

  • What? I didn't even know this was a thing! When did this start happening? How many opinions is too much? How short of a time period is too short? :S

  • How extreme is it? I think if someone is trying to post a lot of opinions in a short time that only consist of 5 words then that's fair enough lol but if someone is being somewhat helpful and then gets that then that's NOT COOOOOL

  • It's been like that for a while now... just wait a minute or two and keep going.

    • I had to wait like 40 minutes. FOR REAL. 😐

    • Hmm... maybe they've increased the wait time then? The last I ever heard of this, the wait wasn't very long at all. Maybe they're trying to crack down on spammers. I don't even know anymore.

  • Never happened to me. I guess that's a good thing😊

  • I have seen similar things on other sites, they are to stop spamming or Xper grabbing. In theory you could type out I agree with this then copy it and paste it on a thousand questions in a row then get a 1,000 Xper in an hour.
    It depends on what the ratio is - Allowing two answers per minute seems reasonable.

  • So far I haven't remarked it... I usually take my time for opinions so probably the time interval is long enough :D
