Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Possible Duplicates:
Can we get x comment votes per x minutes, rather than one vote per 5 seconds?
To change the 30-second time limit in comments

I often read through the answers to a question first and then start to comment. And very often I write comments faster than one per 30 seconds... it is very annoying to have to wait for that time to pass =/

How about decreasing that time limit? I'm sure it is there to prevent flooding of some sorts, but is 30 seconds really necessary? How about lowering it to 5-10 seconds?

Eric, that's about votes per second, not comments per minute. – Ladybug Killer Aug 4 '09 at 11:23

This has been asked before, but I do not think that it is a problem. There really isn't a need to make it any faster (by that I mean there isn't exactly a requirement for comments to be speedy like answers would be).

Overall I wouldn't mind if it changed, but I don't think it is any type of priority at all.
