Not sure if this will go through.. But do wonder.. What is up with the Spamming notice that is coming up when I go to respond to a post?

Is there a limit now to how many posts one can post or something..?

I reply to a post..  read another and go to post and it will say that I have exceeded the amount of posts within the time limit.. or something worded like that..

can someone explain?

      I am going to try this again...

       

      This is really frustrating.. even more so since time is so limited here.  I worked out method for a lot of states this afternoon to post. To help others.. and could not get them to go through. I was rushed enough doing this and having to get ready for work.  I missed getting some winners in on site before leaving.. Luckily I won more than I spent tonight with what did go through.

       

      I will continue to be a reader.. and not posting predictions on the boards.  I cannot take a chance of not getting my own plays in.

        It also happend to me.  I told Todd about it, but he didn't respond to my PM.  It probably has something to do with the server he had to switch over to when the power supply quit on the other server (see his Blog).

            I was reading a post yesterday. Todd is limiting on certain posts. I guess alot of people are posting needless replys and such. He's probably working it out.

            Not sure though if thats the reason..

            If it weren't for Vtracs and STXS where would we be?

              Was it one sentence posts?

              It's not necessary to automatically consider posts as spam because you post some
              posts in a short time span.

              Usually I reply to several threads in a short time span.
              Then do not post for several hours. Then reply to several threads in a short time span again.

                Well, folks, the problem has to do with the server failure we had yesterday.  People can read about it in my Blog.

                It turns out that the system clock on the temporary server I'm using to host this web site was three minutes slow, so the spamming checks were probably thinking that you're trying to repost the message again and again.

                I have adjusted the clock, so please send me a PM if it still exhibits this behavior.

                Thanks!

                    Also, like my post yesterday said, any limitations have nothing to do with Pick 3 posters.  Keep posting exactly as you did before, with no changes whatsoever.  You people are just terrific.

                    My message is limited to those who are posting messages of limited (or zero) substance, just to boost their number of posts, or to play "see who can get the last word".

                    There are only a few people doing this, so don't become concerned.

                    As a matter of principle, I needed to post the message very prominently in the public forums, because I live by my own rules -- I do not try to be god-like and ignore the rules I set for my web site.  So if I'm going to change the rules, I'm going to do so in a very public manner, so it's as fair as possible, and so it can be clearly explained as to why I'm doing it.

                      Thanks Todd..

                       

                      I believe everyone is doing a great job here on the pick 3 forum.  I had to come to realize that I cannot please everyone with my posting preference. 

                       

                      It would be great to me if someone would just post the winning number for each state.. I wouldn't care how they preferred to posted it , as long as I was making money.  Each their own..
