Default Hack to combine double posts made in quick succession?

Can we install a hack that combines posts if theyíre made in close enough succession? I have no idea what Jerome just posted here:

annoying triple post.png

But thereís no reason for a person to make three separate posts in the same thread within the span of eight minutes. Itís been a while since I looked on vBulletin.org, but I remember some of the anti-double post hacks would allow administrators to enable double posts after a certain span of time had elapsed. For the purposes of this board, I should think twenty-four hours would be a good length, since thatís when the edit window for new posts elapses.

A good argument for combining double posts like this, besides that itís obnoxious, is that it pushes good content onto a previous page. Which is probably why he does it.

Anyway, since heís returned to this board, I thought Iíd bring up this suggestion again, since seeing several ignored post placeholders in a row gets old fast. I suppose I could just disable the placeholders since I rarely click them, but I like at least knowing which user Iím not reading.

Sorry you can't think that fast...

I feel your pain. The hack you mention is a Good Idea and a Real Thing ... but might require Some Sort of Miracle.

Even if vm turns up, which he will at some point, finding a version of the mod that works on this medieval version of vbulletin, and risking borking the board by installing it, might be insurmountable obstacles.

Instead, contemplate smilies: :longing: :peace1:

Version 3.8.x, right? This hack and this hack both were for 3.8.x. Maybe one of them still works. But yeah, probably worth trying on a test board first just to make sure it doesn’t break the board.

I mean, I COULD manually combine multiple posts, I think.

In a shameless display of power.

Someone would have to dare me, though.

I dare everyone to just engage or properly ignore Jerome and not have to make any special rules or hacks to deal with him.
