It is seriously annoying to have to wait one minute to report again - if there are two violating posts then it's just a chore to report them both to be honest. I'm sure spambots aren't that bad, maybe lower it to 15 seconds?

I personally have no problem with this. I think I can remember... one time (?) where we've had an issue with people bombarding the reports system and I think this'd do much more good than bad. So yeah, I'm all for this. 15-30 seconds sounds grand. For reference - what's the current limit? 60 seconds?

60 seconds is indeed the current wait time.

The shorter limit would certainly make it less of a chore to report multiple rule-breaking posts on the same page.

This is a good suggestion. I don't want it to be inconvenient to be a good "citizen." I report anyway (usually flip to FB waiting for time to expire), but it would be much nicer and simpler if I can pretty much press the Report icon, type the reason and submit, then come back, do it again and the timer already be reset [because it's much shorter].

I've had it happen here and on another forum where the Report time interval was quite long and it deterred me from reporting a bunch of things at once (that merited it, of course). Definitely don't want to discourage people from being good :P that's counter-productive!

I definitely agree. If something needs to be reported, it needs to be reported, simple as. Especially when you have urgent things, such as trolling, disrespect, or posting inappropriate things. So yeah. I'm all for shortening, or even eliminating, the report wait time.

I agree, I recently found a couple instances of multiple violating posts even right next to each other. It was a real pain having to wait 60 seconds for each.

I'm all for this change, I tend to report quite a few threads and having to wait 60 seconds between the reports forces me to have to get distracted until the timer runs out, cutting the time can really help the staff a lot. Shorter waiting times basically mean reports are dealt with easier.
