I think I can get this one, seeing on how as my first RP was this exact problem. MAKE THEM STOP! There really isn't anything as a DM you can do but tell them to slow it down. I remember the good ol' days of "Hunters of the Damned" Whoo-wee did we have some fun times with that. There you go, that's my answer.

MC, that doesn't work... The DM(Of Hunters) tried to stop it, and it didn't work...

The question is, is there a practical solution to this problem apart from having multiple DMs?
Slow down.

If your players are too eager to post every two seconds, then maybe they need to learn a little restraint. Message board roleplaying involves time gaps, needed to make sure that all of the characters are at least aware of the events.

That's one reasion I'm attempting to keep to a "60 posts and we make a new thread" thing. Marathon posting in the first thread of my RP happoned, and ended up hitting the limit extremely quickly, while I only had about 3 or 4 posts beforehand. Don't be afraid to put your foot down and say "Slow down, or I will have this thread locked."

Rairai has already put a 100 posts/thread limit on it. I think so far we've kept to the rule. As for spamming of combat, if your a main combatant just dont post as much. Space out your replies and it will force the rest of the group to slow down also.

You would think so... But they will more then likely ignore that your character has stopped, and finish off whatever they were doing, then replace your person.

Can we have a sticky 'God-Mod-Free-Battle' place?

I think that will be shut down rather quickly.
