Post flooding error

Occasional Contributor

I created a normal post, click Post and get an error:

 

Correct the highlighted errors and try again.

  • Post flooding detected (community received posts of a unique message more than 1 times within 3,600 seconds)

 

So apparently I can't post for an hour. I've given up and gone somewhere else, this feature needs fixing, I didn't do anything odd just wrote a post and hit the post button.

Update: in the end, I had to exit new post, saving to notepad in case it was lost, create a new post, recover from draft, then finally the post worked. Not exactly easy. I suspect the issue was caused by initially clicking post before a label was selected

Hi, exactly yes - a tag must be added. The community in which you write the post.

I just had the same experience, looks like a new bug. In the past, I would just get a reminder to add a tag and after doing this I could submit without any issues.
