because this problem with DOUBLE POSTING aint ever going to go away.

and being some sort of 'Society' I am wondering if we are of a 'Democratic Society?' ,
if so then perhaps have a POLL / VOTE and either ENFORCE it (punishable by public abuse) or BOOT IT (for good)

:tu:

I'll visit you with all my friends, we coming to your place, your house. We'll drink all your booze and start to poop on your carpet.
You as the house owner/rentee has the right to prohibit pooping on your carpet... but we start a vote and win it because it's you against us. Now you have to accept that we poop on your carpet.
Or you can throw us out because house rules are house rules and you have paid for your living space.

If you still think this rule should be "Re-Evaluated" write it down in the Suggestion, Criticism, Questions section.

Good suggestion. But I don't know if Shade is able to implement it, in his heavily customized phpBB code.

A better explanation is, just "EDIT" your last post until you get a reply.

It should not be called double post, Double post seems like a forum glitch that leaves two identical posts in a row.

a conversation you can bether do on a chat channel.Maby a chat session also.
A double post withing 24 hours is forbidden.
A post reaction about a topic far ahead of 24 hours is legal.
Well sometimes i have some trouble with that, but pappercoffee is right.
There must be some rules in this forum and sometimes he merged the post from other guys causing the 24 hour rule.
I respect his work here on this forum.And he is doing is work right.Without the rules we have chaos here.
btw this is no double post there are 3 years apart from eachother.between the post. :loool:

Only if you are the last one who posted in the thread. Then you have to wait 24 to post again. If you want to add more info earlier edit your last post.

The fact is that no one is reading old post even if has new info after 18 hours. Two times people asked something and I posted it later = 0 (zero) downloads because Reading/ReReading forum it's a heavy task... and I had to trigger/bump topic in order to refresh portal posts or such without anything On-Topic... Or next time I will wait a week - probably it's more constructive... or no longer posting/editing anything, but elsewhere... during 24 hours without a problem.

click Edit.
Add new content.
select all.
copy all.
go back and don't submit.
DELETE post.
click Postreply.
paste all.
click submit.

You bumped a thread without double posting.
Works best for posts without attachments.

Good point, changing this way time-stamp of the initial post. I gotta keep this inside my brain.
