    SUBMIT IS NOT PREVIEW >.<

    Who can change that? I keep pressing Submit and it shows me the Preview like 327031731 times. And no Iam not pressing the wrong button.

    Yes I think thats perfect here in the FF XI Talk Section, because we are FF XI people here .!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think Roster/Ondori asked to tell him when this happens again
    And yes I cry, cause I dont wanna click a button and have a 50:50 Chance just like the Joker in "Who wants to be a Millionair".

    I kept pressing Submit in my last 3 Posts over 10 times and added a (!) for everytime I pressed it again. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    if it shows Preview, hit Back and Submit again

    There's a 5 second delay. If you make a post that takes 5 seconds or less to type out (or edit) it'll hit preview instead. This effectively stops botting, but it doesn't prevent paid human spammers (which is what we've been getting lately instead of those long lists of links posts that used to be here).

    There are a few other things to watch out for, such as if your IP changes during the post/edit or anything else that might alert the script to think you're a sneaky bastard bot.

    So from now on, just wait 5 seconds before hitting submit. I've seen a few people get confused over it, but I didn't really want to advertise the change since it's really not a big deal. If you're taking less than 5 seconds on a post...
