So this rule was put in to place by the mod team for some reason. There is the basic timer that you can't post multiple statues before 15 minutes. And there is the other one that you can't delete your status and then replace it.
Ok, so the first rule make sense, it'll stop people from spamming, but it's not really needed anymore. YCM has about 60 active people, and the same 5 statues last many hours these days. Chances are, if you post a statues, you'll still be in the top 5. The new statues replaces your old one in the visible side bar, so bumping someone out will only happen if your status was bumped out of the top 5 in the last 15 minutes. It's highly unlikely
The more offending rule is the second one. By deleting my status, there is honestly no way to bump someone out of the status bar. I might wanna add more, or maybe something cool happened that I wanted to share. It's also a shit thing to moderate because unlike the first spam rule there's no way to really track it. If a mod sees it, then you get fucked, otherwise you get away with it. It is, by nature, an unusual punishment.
Neither of these rules were ran by the community, the mods just slapped them down and told us to go fish, which isn't ok.
So I ask the mods, what positive change came from these unnecessary regulations?
