The min first post typing time setting will automatically send a post to the approval queue if it was made too quickly. This even happens if the user does not have permission to post on a thread / in a category. For instance, given:
- There is a category “Announcements” that I don’t have access to create posts or new topics in
- I quote an existing reply to get the “Continuing the discussion from…” post editor
- I post more quickly than the min first post typing time setting
that post will be submitted to the approval queue:
This is dangerous because a mod might not notice the category, maybe the post is fine somehow (e.g. pasted in from notepad, which caused post timing to be < threshold), and when they approve it, a topic has been created in a category no one aside from admins can create new topics in (e.g. announcements).
Expected behavior is that the user is given the no access warning that they are if they spent > threshold typing the post, rather than the post going to the approval queue.
