Just a question: Why is there a limitation on how many posts we make in one day? I always experience this. I post a thing and I can see a message box telling me that my post is too much or more than alloted amount blah-blah-blah something like that, so I do not earn bio-point for my message. Actually I never count my bio-points, I love to type and post and let just let it runs but this limitation annoys me. Why oh why does it exist? :? :roll: :)

I see I still get 18.47 or so for these late two days though I posted bunches of posts, which some satisfy people pretty well. Also, I still get the similar message about my exceeded post. How could that be? I think the limitation only for a 24 hour, now it is already 2x24 hours? :roll: And my English seems so terrible in this post :lol: :oops: :P

"You have exceeded the alloted amount of posts and will not earn anything for your post"

Please take that line far far away from me! :evil: :twisted: :twisted: :? :lol:

May I suggest that if you avoid the simple :lol:'s, "I don't know but..." or some off-topic posts (out of the off-topic forum I mean), your post count will be lower and this message will appear less frequently. Of course you don't have to do what I say, it's just a friendly suggestion.

As for the Limit I think (considering my own experience) that it takes ito account the last 24h (rolling). Hence even if you exceed the limit, your posts are still counted and adding, so if you really want to get some more points, take a break. Now considering how useful they are...

Since the biopoint counter counts both number of posts and the length of the post the dily limit is to prevent people from getting 1000 bioposts when they post a very long paper
