SBYP = search before you post
It stands for " Search Before You Post". THT wants everyone to do this so the forum won't get clogged up with clones of topics.
My version of @Ella_13's reply: If you don't SBYP and your topic is like someone else's, someone will kindly tell your there is already a topic like yours and hopefully provide you with a link.
SBYP means search before you post. Basically before you post a topic you should search and see if anyone has a topic similar to urs.
If u don't SBYP but there is a topic like it then someone will kindly remind you to SBYP
We just don't want the forum clogged up with clones of the same topic
It's to prevent spam. Also, I believe there are quite a few topics which have answers.
Anyone know why people have limited likes though?
HAAAA I WAS THE FIRST ONE TO DEFINE IT
I think it's also to prevent spam.
Discourse intended them to only be for something you agree with, but it's a bit different here so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But exactly how would that help prevent spam?
I dunno tbh but my guess is that bots could boost stats for other users and Discourse doesn't want that.
Makes sense. I guess I should stop spam-liking LOL
Who the hec.k is discourse!!!! First I hear its a programming lang then I hear he is a person halp
Oooh. Discourse, your forums are the best ha ha ha......
dont suspend me
Oh ok I will next time thanks.
I thought the reply limit was only in your first 24 hours.
Wait wut (I didn't make this account)
But to answer your question, @Hicoding, the reply limit is when you're a basic user. Discourse (the company who made the forum) doesn't want new users spamming, so you have a 24-hour reply limit.
After 24 hours have passed, there's no more reply limits! :D
Do you have any siblings that could have made that account?
It might be one of my neighbors tho, so it's fine :D
