That is because you are an administrator of the board. The flood thing does not apply to moderators and higher.

How should it detect posts from unregistered people? vBulletin does not do that... Otherwise, all the guests on the internet would be dependant on each other. If you want, uninstall the hack, and see for yourself that vbulletin's flood control does not concern guests.

Yes I just found that out. Thats riciculous. You would think it could track the IP as an additional post.

Not really... IPs are often shared, esspecially, on corporate networks. That would be a nuissance is posting would treat a network of computers as the same computer...

I would think that the board could just store each user as a session cookie and know if that person posted again.

Great hack but you can always use the Auto Merge Double Post hack by Xenon as it is much easier.

Auto Merge does not merge posts that were made in different threads

Psionic Vision, you can add a countdown number appear in "Submit" button and align left "Submit" phare in template showthread_quickreply and editpost (a number I said is the second set by Advanced Flood Control in admincp). This idea make the members in forum know how long they have permission post a next post after they post a new post before.

Example: I set 40 second in "Extended Minium Time Between Post", a members name is ABC post a reply, if ABC want post a next new post => button submit is hidden, member ABC can't not click the submit button and a number countdown appear. When the a number countdown from (40) to (0), button "submit" is appear again for member ABC submit new post.

Great idea! Like the post quick reply and submit reply button will be disabled until the time between posts is consumed.
