    Whenever I try to download a map, it always says I am downloading files too fast, and says to wait a certain amount of seconds. (Example from just now: 13 seconds.)

    I always wait longer than that amount of seconds, sit still and do nothing, then try again, and the timer goes way up. (Example from just now: 43 seconds.)

    I can't fathom why this happens to me, but I haven't been able to download from your site in over a month.

    I don't see anything wrong with your profile over on my end, I will ask our head admin when he gets on to look into it for you.

    Hey Hinchy,

    Sorry about that. Your account looks normal. Nothing weird. Try clearing your cookies?

    Maybe the site is reading them incorrectly thinking you're currently downloading or have downloaded something recently.

    Let me know if this does not help.

    Also, please try with a different browser if that does not help.

    Thanks,

    -drp

    It sounds like it could be an accidental double request. Sometimes I mistakenly doubleclick the "new posts" link and am greeted with a page telling me to wait 10 seconds between searches, since both requests got sent and I load the later one. Download manager plugin? Broken mouse? Any unusual plugins? Something else?
