That was supposed to be a p
I panicked
I think 10s is a safe
 
@RedwolfPrograms good job
 
delay between messages
a
oh no that was wrong too
I just got a thing
:(
Wait hang on it's gone now
If you do accumulate a cooldown, it's slow
As I get cooldown'd 2s
q
r
s
4s cooldown
t
again :/
I have no clue how this works
5s cooldown
u
wait...I think I found something
I only get cooldown'd under 10s
E.g. that was under 10s and I got an 8s cooldown
v
Nope
I
Okay, I still have no idea what's going on
I wonder if they'd answer if I asked about it on meta
I got a 9s cooldown there D:
It's been some time now, I wonder if I still have a cooldown queued up
a
I most certainly still do
I wonder if I could ask sort of "off the record". I have a legitimate reason to know, given that I develop/maintain NP/SP, but I could see them not wanting every Joe Spammer on meta to know as well
 
6:51 PM
wait, just curious, why would you need to know how the cooldown system works for npsp
 
So that I can prevent it from getting cooldown'd too much
 
posts don't come in often enough for that to matter do they?
 
If for some reason a bunch of posts were to need to be posted at once (more of an issue once SP is used in other rooms for other things, like GoR as planned), the cooldown could stack up to pretty high amounts
 
ah
idk you might be able to get an answer on meta
i mean if someone is spamming they're disruptive whether or not they can game the cooldown for like maybe a few extra messages before they get kicked or banned
 
Plsu I'm developing a chat bot library for more general purposes, which is my main reason for wanting to know
NP/SP is more like my excuse for why I have a legitimate need to know, although a big part of it is actually just that I'm extremely curious :p
From what I've seen so far Tim's locked under SE with a pair of dice and he randomly assigns you a cooldown
But he forgets sometimes
Okay, I need a screenshot for the post, so I'm gonna do a little bit more testing
