Okay, what now?

I posted a photo a few minutes ago. I got a response to it, and thanked the person responding.

But I got this message when I sent the response:

"You have made too many posts in this forum within the past 24 hours to be able to bump more old threads. Please try again later or pick a newer thread."

It wasn't an old thread - the thread was a few minutes old. I was able to post, but not to respond to any posts. Why is that?

Adam said he was thinking of putting a cap on posts because the bandwidth was struggling. Maybe yours ticked a wrong box

This seems in direct contrast to the goal of the current giveaway contest.

"Drive to New York"
"I need gas"
"You can't have anymore gas, you're driving too much"

Lol
I think it was more a case of stopping people posting their back catalogue of photographs, purely because of the size of each individual file. The op said he was commenting on a picture. Maybe that had something to do with it

This is the thread, and (as mentioned above) it's only from today.

Clouded leopard - PentaxForums.com

I can understand (sort of) not wanting old threads to be resurrected, and in my case, I didn't even realize I was doing it. I just looked at the photo, not at the upload date. But when it's brand-new, what's the problem?

I may add a cap on spikes in activity if we continue receiving such feedback.

So.. maybe he was trying out the cap?

Apparently after posting a certain {very small} number of time, we are limited to page 1. Try it now - someone with fewer posts has "bumped" yours back to page 1.

Three days after rewarding us for high post count, he is now punishing us.

I'm logging off.

Looks like there was a bug in the system- this was certainly not indented. Are you able to post in the thread now?

There is no post limit overall, however after 75 posts (in PYP) it will no longer be possible to comment on those old threads (in PYP). This is still something we're testing, so it's subject to change. My goal is to minimally disrupt the giveaway while also addressing the concerns that some users have been voicing.
