Stop users from double posting and bumping/spamming the topics.

  • Setup this mod at Administration Center » Add-on Settings » Miscellaneous.
  • Removes Quick Reply if a bump is not allowed
    • Does NOT remove the ‘Reply’ buttons.
    • This is intentional and is set up to facilitate users receiving the error message, rather than asking (repeatedly) “Why can’t I reply?”
  • The applicable group threshold is the lowest in the user’s groups.
    • Global moderators get 1 hour while newbies have 3 days to wait.
    • If a newbie is also a global moderator, then their wait time is 1 hour.
