    There is currently a limit on private messages that only allow you to send 1 every 60 seconds. I understand this is to slow down the spammers out there etc.

    However It would be good if this could be lifted or reduced based on the users post count or rank. As I become more active, it is taking longer to reply to PM's due to this restriction. So to reply to 10 PMs which should take only a couple of mins actually takes more than twice as long.... I dunno how all those that sell services cope!

    Anyway... just a suggestion :)

    The person who sell services reply to 5 at once because the info they need to sell is basically the same.
    also even though sometimes i have to wait for 60 seconds to send the pms,its actually a very good rule and the limit is perfect.
    I dont think any change is needed.
    but its upto EC,HaRRo and rest of the mods and admin team.

    In vBulletin, there's no way to increase PM time limits on a user group basis; the changes are reflected forum-wide.

    Maybe the value can in general be changed to 30 seconds ?
    That means waiting 10-15 seconds instead of 40+ when answering short PM's

    I wish we could. Every time we lower the time limit, someone PM spams the shit out of us.
