The time limit is per user, not per thread.

HI JK (god of RibNet and Orkney Expedition candidate)

The problem with this 10 minute thingy is that when browsing the forums theer may be two or three threads one wishes to comment upon (how bl**dy posh does that sound?), and this means that instead of a quick 5-10 minute visit one needs to wait around for 30 minutes or so.

It therefore follows that replying to 10 threads would take me 100 minutes. The boss (er indoors ) will never stand for that.

Hi John and everyone

Whilst I perfectly understand the reasoning behind the time limits for postings, I think it is very impractical to maintain the interest and momentum on the forums with a 10 minute time limit / penalty. We realise, of course, that this is NOT a democracy rather a Cuban styled one party authoritarian, dictatorship (ONLY KIDDING ), could the software not be targeted at individuals who continually transgress the boundaries of the forum?

I have changed the setting to five minutes and will keep reviewing the situation. It is very much a trial, and I hope that it won't cause too many problems for people!

I think it's more likely to be a coincidence. Most people appear to only post one message at a time anyway. Let's see how it goes . . .
