maybe it's got something to do with servers, browsers...
when I got the 30sec I don't post again. on checking later, my post is always there

not sure about what pissed the OP off though. I often get this 30 sec notification and it usually means that your post has already been made. it just prevents you to post the same thing twice

Not sure what you're talking about being unable to see your posts...? Just click on your name in a thread and the options for your threads and posts can be found.

If you like searching or waiting 30s, go ahead... "I can't care less"... Adding 2 simple links in CP would be something very basic and very useful and it wouldn't harm the forum / server performance at all if you think about it.
I just told you how to navigate to your posts and threads with 3 clicks... Quick Links -> My Profile -> Find all posts/threads..

I am not talking about that.

I do that and it says "forum wants you to wait 30s..." or something like that. What the hell does that prevents?
It's already insulting and irritating, but I wait 30+ seconds like a full, try again and I get the same message. And again. And again...

So as I've said, if they still see this "feature" as something very smart and very useful, they should put appropriate links in user CP - that would me much more useful than some of the useless stuff that are already in there...
Every single large forum I am subscribed to has a wait limitation for searches as well. Again, it reduces load on the server. If you aren't happy with that or don't understand, then go donate money. Because seriously, I just went to 5 different large forums that I am subscribed to and every single one of them have a search limit within 30 or 60 seconds and 2 of these forums are very large ones (5000-10000 users on at once consistently).

And about using USER CP area, I could care less. As if it takes that long to go to a thread and click on your name. Plus, under "Quick Links" you go to your profile which gives you your thread and post searches..

Much bigger forums doesn't have that nonsense and everything is working fine.

You can at least add "my posts" and "my threads" links in user CP.
