Spam Block misfiring?

DogDog Registered User, Administrator, Vanilla Staff admin
Got a spam block warning when trying to post in a thread (see attached, and don't think too hard about the post itself)

Double checked my post activity, and this doesn't seem in line with my recent post activity (see other attached)

Bug? Working as intended by misleading message?

This is from an Android phone using Chrome. Can provide more details as necessary


SUMMARY:
This appears to affect users across multiple platforms, and has been seen in regular posting, editing posts, and PM's.

This appears to be related to a recent commit to the vanilla forums repository:
https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/commit/5dab3798639d65d39793253f61c24804679b244a

A workaround is clearing recent cookies and signing back in if you run into this issue.
NOTE: This will only reset the counter, and you will need to eventually clear cookies/sign back in again.

    @Henroid is but can't respond here because it's getting spam blocked. :P

    it's been four minutes since i last attempted a post, so just seeing if i can post at all

    i got the block seven minutes after having posted anything at all and since then it seems any attempt to post has retriggered the block, or the block just isn't wearing off

    chrome on desktop, not mobile for me

    I just saw the same error, using Mozilla Firefox on my home computer. Let's see if this let's me post now.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    occurs on firefox desktop for me as well. Tested in PM with other affected user

  • TubeTube Administrator, ClubPA admin
    Could affected people see if they can replicate it working fine in IE

    I reported this to Vanilla already so I'm almost certain it will get fixed by 2019

    I've only made two posts in 5 minutes, but it's saying I've made 5 posts in 60 seconds.

    The limit is five posts a minute already so changing the flood control settings on my end is unlikely to help

    It just let me post from my phone and on my computer again. Perhaps this was a blip?

    I don't think it's related to the setting itself. I was able to get a warning after 2 posted messages in PM and the warning message reflected this.

    Hit it on firefox at work on a desktop.

    Edit: Cleared up by swapping to Chrome.

    Yeah this is a Vanilla problem, I don't think browser will make a difference and we'll all just end up picking out patterns from random variance.

    Clearing my cache and cookies seems to have cleared it. May have been a coincidence though.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Yeah that's what I found, looks like it skips admins entirely, though there's a lot of code to comb through to find what's causing it. Vanilla duders are good they'll find it.
