I understand they have too to stop spam but it is way too long at the moment it should be more like 20 or 30 seconds

My only real complaint is when I type a comment and I want to type another comment ten seconds later and have to wait 165 seconds. I believe it can be fixed or tweaked.

At least we should be able to reply on our own memes at will. Other users there isn't nearly as often the need to do multiples.

That's a good point. About fewer time restrictions (or maybe none at all) when it's your own meme. It's hard to defend your point of view or answer comments when there's 4 people commenting and you have to wait as long as each one of them.

The trouble is that some people would no doubt comment-bomb their own memes to try to get them higher-rated.

Thats a good point, but it could possible be tuned to "replies" instead of comments.

Right, like you can reply unlimited times but you can only comment a certain number in a certain time period. That makes sense.
reply
9 ups, 1 reply
I think it should be fewer time restrictions for each comment on any meme, and no restrictions on your own meme. It's too long if I'm having a conversation or replying to multiple comments on a popular meme (yeah, I have popular memes)
reply
9 ups
I almost understand time restrictions on a thread that is not your own,... it keeps the trolls down,... from immediately being an ass to every comment on a meme they don't like. But on our own memes,... our threads I agree with you bro! It's BS waiting almost 3 miniutes to comment back,.. especially on a high comment thread.

Out of curiosity (not going to try it), would spamming my own meme gain popularity?

It's possible that the number of comments on a meme is one of the factors involved in deciding its relative position in the Hot stream.

That's a really good idea and should be looked into changing.

What gets to me is when you're trying to meme comment - you upload, create and submit and THEN it tells you that you have to wait a bit and then you have to start all over! If only it would hold it there and you could submit in a few minutes without having to start over!

What about instead of changing the timer, the make it where you can't hit the submit button or text comment button until the timer is up? That way you don't have to recreate your meme comment.

I have a strategy that works for me! If you type a comment, post it and then click the "next/prev./random" meme button, then click the back button. (this may not work for you, but can one of you tell me if it works? hope this actually works for you. :)

Are you saying that if you flip to a random meme and then hit the Back button, the time restriction goes away?

A crawler is a piece of software that goes from a.com to z.com one page at a time, or in this case a.com/page=1 to a.com/page=100.

eventually the individual's bandwidth limit/ processing limit would prevent that many bots (pieces of software) from running simultaneously on a single IP/machine.

I get it, but after only one comment it gets old. I think they could tweak it a little.

I agree unless the bots that are being rejected are cycling to new attacks rapidly or sustaining advertisements placement attacks; 165 seconds is too long.

Honestly, I thought getting rid of the downvote bar was the troll buster. I think the limited commenting is for spammers, but I don't see that working very well. My complaint is having to wait over two minutes to comment after only posting one comment. I think it's something they could fix, but my inquiries are being ignored. Perhaps I'm not going about it the correct way.

I don't think that's fair. It's not common for him to put multiple comments on one meme, so I don't see how it's connected.

It's true that posting unrelated links is annoying, but having a timer on comments doesn't have anything to do with that.

I never said you were wrong for raising an issue. The difference between you and I is you keep griping about it. I make a meme about it and let it go if it doesn't change. Obviously if it isn't being addressed by the mods, there's a reason. I also don't troll on other user's memes like you do.
reply
8 ups, 2 replies
No, the difference between us is I don't whine like you do. I don't take offense to memes made about me. I don't demand appologies from other users like you do. You take offense to everything said about you here instead of ignoring it or laughing it off as I do. That's the differense between you and me.

And I posted this meme because as I have seen in the past sometimes posting a meme and it getting a lot of attention will bring it to the mod's attention more so than complaining about it through email.

And about your two hour wait time, that sounds like bullspit to me. You seem to be commenting a lot ok n my meme and you're doing it frequently, not 2 hours. So before you start suggesting I do anything on this site, how about become a moderator first, then maybe I'll listen.
reply

3 ups, 1 reply
You are telling me you wouldn't take offense if people started calling you a communist because you want everyone to not experience any wait time to comment? I find that to be a load of shit. I bet if there were multiple memes talking shit about you, you would take offense, especially when the memes are based off of lies.

You think the 2 hour wait time is bullshit? I haven't experienced it on this account, but my first account got it because of tetsuoswrath and the group he hired to downvote me. You want proof that there has been a 2 hour wait time given? https://imgflip.com/i/11thxu

Dude, in all seriousness, I will give you some awesome advice. And I'm not being rude, crude or bullspitting you in any way. After I give this advice, I'll let this be, because I grow tired of this argument.

My advice to you is, if you want people to stop making memes about you and to stop talking about you negatively, just delete all your accounts you have active and create a new one. On the new account, don't tell anyone who you are, just make memes and comment on other memes. The problem with the featuring I can't help you with, but just drop everything and start over from the beginning. That's how you stop the "harrassment."

That's my free advice to you. And I'm being 100% legit about it. From one human being to another, just drop everything and start over and don't tell anyone who you are. Have a good day.

Coming from the guy who told me to stop complaining about something wrong with the site? What exactly are you guys doing here? Well it looks like you are complaining about something you consider wrong with the site. If you guys have already contacted the admins about it, why bother making a meme about it as well. Why is it ok for you guys to do it and wrong for a non-top user to do it?

I am not talking about the hotest pages, I am talking about the latest pages, you know where all the newly featured memes go. My original memes would take 6 hours at least to get featured (which is fine) but would start on or after page 9 (where there is hardly any traffic).
