Hi Community Admins,

Hope you might also faced this issue i think... recent times, in last one week, around 5 times, I faced this issue.

Though i am not doing the post flooding.

Post flooding detected (community received posts of a unique message more than 1 times within 3,600 seconds)

 

Any ideas, suggestions, feedbacks please..

Hello @inventsekar

Thanks

i tried to send you the PM, but, it gives me, the strange - "You have reached the limit for number of private messages that you can send for now. Please try again later."

i have added you as friend and sent the PM again, but still the problem persists. 

ok, all i was doing was to reply to the post:

https://community.splunk.com/t5/Splunk-Enterprise/Large-CSV-ingest/m-p/531010#M4295

this post is, luckily, having my answer in the "auto-saved" option. 

i was just posting answer from Splunk documentation, the docs link, nothing more.

 

Thanks for looking into this issue, @brwalker_splunk . 

 

Best Regards,

sooo, an user try to flood, his post will be given this warning for 3600 seconds - 1 hour. 

after 1 hr, that user should be able to post the same content or will it be still a post flooding issue?

 

even after 2 days, even after editing my content, "community" gives me the warning of post flooding ! strange!... i would like to speak to the developer and understand his concepts!

may i tag @bjennewein please..

6 hrs ago, for this same post, i faced this issue and i created this post..

now, after 6 hrs, the issue "still stands true".

and, for @richgalloway 's reference, i have modified the 2 lines and tried to post again, still the issue.

I've seen that on occasion.  I think it's a momentary glitch in the site's servers.  The quick workaround is to modify the posting (changing a single character is enough) and submit again.

Actually, @richgalloway , i did try that option. I edited around a line or two, submitted and still faced the same issue. 

As we are all "matured" enough not to do post flooding, i think, this feature can be turned off. 

Or...

The active members or id's with good/decent badges should be given to "hold" a user if s/he is flooding, manually.

This featured increased my blood pressure around 10/15 times in this last one week. seriously. Thanks for some thoughts.
