    I stumbled across this trying to check off a couple of hads. Is there a good reason for this? It's not like I'm funneling beers in 30 seconds, I just like to sometimes hit 3-4 recent 'hads' from one brewery at a time when I'm on a brewer's page. Having to wait a couple of minutes in between kind of kills the mood...

    It's not a couple of minutes. It's currently set for 60 seconds. We can adjust if need be.

    Personally I think 10 seconds should be enough (0 sec would be even better). 60 seconds seems really long if you are trying to enter a backlog of Hads.

    Now that Hads count people are trying to "sway the vote."

    This is unrelated to the thread, but score bashing/hyping occurs with full reviews too. It's just part of having a subjective consumer rating system. The numbers and calculations sort this out in the end.

    Back to the time limit ...

    We'll need to adjust for mobile activity anyway. 10 seconds could be ideal.

    Concur. I'm more of a Hadder than a Reviewer and I've been ticking off more beers since the switch. Wasn't trying to come across as a Reviewer snob.

    I'm a newbie, but in regards to the topic at hand I agree that 60 seconds may be too long. I am trying to get current on the the beer that I have "had". When I am online and trying to log the beers off of my list, I run into the message and have to reload the page. Not a huge deal, it just slows the process.

    Thanks

    Great... 10 sec is perfect, that's more than enought time to update 2 or more hads without a wait time.

    Cheers

    Thank you. I was really getting annoyed yesterday trying to "had" a few beers. 10 secs is more than ample.
