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

1 Answer 1

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.
