    What do you think is an effective flood time. Personally I have mine set to 8 seconds, less than that would allow spam and more than 15 is annoying.

    I think 10-15 seconds is reasonable for any kind of board.

    To your left... no your other left.
    That is kind of pointless, as it has no effect.

    I like it to be somewhere between 5 and 10.

    Unless you have a 100mbps connection and can type really fast.

    I set mine as 10 seconds.

    I usually set mine at 15 seconds, and then lower for the higher member ranks.
