    There's a 63 second delay between PMs. I thought I had a lot of PMs to reply to when I wake up but I can't even imagine the amount that some of the big service OPs would get.
    Is there any way to take this down to 30 seconds or something for Jr VIP and higher?

    Let's hear some opinions!

    I second that!! It is such a pain to reply and half of the time, I forget that I'm replying to PMs because I started doing something else while I wait...

    good idea but i doubt it. the PM floodcheck is a global setting that applies to all usergroups except for moderators. changing that behavior would require changing the vbulletin code itself (i dont think a plugin could do it).

    That's so wrong? You just change the setting for Jr VIP members to have no limit, just like you can change how many PMs they get etc.

    im looking in the admin panel of one of my forums right now and I don't see it. the only thing close in the usergroup manager is Message Throttle Quantity but that changes the amount of messages you can send within the throttle time, it doesn't modify the throttle time itself.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be feasible even if some custom coding is required, so many people pay for VIP and Donor status it could easily be outsourced or even coded here since this is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) internet marketing forums on the web.

    I asked to decrease this time http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/forum-suggestions-feedback/237567-decrease-pm-search-post-intervals-vip-members.html but was ignored.

    Sellers get pms most of the day and it takes more time to handle these messages with that long interval.

    I dunno if you remembered but heavy PM spam was an issue before, having a delay makes it easier to be caught as it would literally take days to PM everyone on the forum with a bot now.

    Before a bot could send and then instantly resend doing it quite quickly. Although I think setting it to JR VIP only could be a good way to negate this issue as you mentioned. So, ya, I guess I'm in favor lol. I know when I go on vacation and come back with 30 PMs in my box I'm not cool with the waiting so I just delete them all.

    I agree with that idea.. Maybe simply removing the limit for Jr. VIP's should be good

    haha : P

    but I get the point, sometimes you just want to respond to 10 PMs and it takes you at least 10minutes waiting..
