    Loss of posting control feature?

    The software used to prohibit posters from posting multiple threads on the main page. Have we lost that feature?

    I agree, it's annoying when it's against the rules but seems to happen a lot these days!

    You mean when someone posts under several different topics or multiple times almost screaming for attention? Yeah, very annoying.

    It seems to happen with new posters who say they want "different perspectives" so they post their question in multiple subforums, not realizing that people can see all of their threads. And that the same people respond to all of the subforums, not just one.

    No i mean new posters who just post two or three threads right after each other, you're supposed to wait till your first thread leaves the main page. I have reported this many times but nothing gets done but i think its annoying, the rules are there for a reason

    Posters that post about the same thing in many sub forums.

    I know many donít read rules, unfortunately.

    But the forum software used to prevent this.

    What annoys me too is the posters who re-post the same thing because they didn't like the answers the first time around.

    Identical threads are usually deleted, but not multiple different posts/topics by the same poster which a lot of posters old and new do all the time.

    Is there a limit on how many active threads a poster can have at the same time? Or how frequently a poster can start a new thread?
