Any chance to use it based on post count instead of usergroup?

I only want to enable it for users with less than 5 posts. I could create a special usergroup for this, but here an example why this isnīt optimal...
When the user has more than 5 posts and gets promoted to the other usergroup without flood check he will be able to post without limits. After posts of him get deleted and he will have 2 posts or less, he is still in the usergroup without flood check, and this is not good.
I could handle this by setting his usergroup manually back through admincp, but thatīs a lot of work if you do it with each member.

So any chance to make it based on post count instead of usergroup?

A nice addon, I'm wondering if there is a chance you could make the delay on reports editable as well - currently vB still uses the email delay, even though if you decide to use the posting of reports - I'd like to change that.
Keep up the great work!

Is this still working for people on 3.6.7?

I just tried installing this, and cant see any new options in 'vbulletin options' or on the left in the admincp, or in usergroup options. so I have checked everywhere settings could be possibly added, but cant seem to find them.

Edit nvm, I was hoping that his over rided the private message flood control as well, which seems to be the reason I cant find it ^^

Hopefully you may consider this as a future update? to include private messages in the advanced flood control. thanks.

I'd really like to use this as a promotion.

xx posts = xx time between posts
xxx posts = less time between posts
xxxx posts = even less time between posts

I've set up user groups with promotions based on post count. Problem is, it doesn't work as an Additional Group. It only works if the promotion moves the member to the new user group as the Primary Usergroup. I can't really have that, for numerous reasons.

Anyone have any ideas how to set this up using promotions as an additional user group? Is it possible?

Presently only Admins and Mods are exempted from flood control. How can I include some more groups to the exemption list. I want to add my donors group to be exempted.

Does not seem to function.

I have installed this mod on my board, and it seems to install fine in terms of adding the proper radio buttons in the admincp. But it does not seem to work. Whatever time limit I set my individual usergoups, they are still stuck at the global setting. It seems the global setting is overiding this mod, which of course makes no sense, but in any case it's not working at all. Any ideas or suggestions as to why? It seems that the global flood control overrides it instead of the other way around.

Planning for future upgrade - compatibility with 3.8? (Currently using 3.6 so apologies if some of this was already built-in to later versions.)
