Anyone else getting it? (in General)

To allow everyone fair access to the limited cpu resources, each user may only be in one fight at a time.

If you clicked on fight before your last one finished, you will get this error. Remember, 'your last one' could have been a challenge page, so moving to another activity is NOT safe at this point.

This is open to abuse since it's so easy to create new user accounts. Creating multiple user accounts is illegal, but rather than make that process more onerous for legitimate new users (such as by email verification, which in any case is trivial to spoof), we've chosen as the most foolproof method to additionally limit fighting on an IP address basis for non-Supporters. This means that if you're behind a firewall that makes multiple computers appear to share the same IP, your fights will conflict with others from behind your firewall.


I was stuck getting this for about a minute or two. After several tries, each several seconds apart, I finally got the ridiculous 10 minute suspension. Yet another reason why the penalty has to go.

And I had better not see anyone post the tired old "fight slower" nonsense again. Read what I wrote this time.

You have to wait a full two minutes.

I'll see if I can amplify that page by putting an estimated time of next fight reset.

A few years ago, I saw an old lady throw her underwear at Tony Bennett. She was as old as he was.
