Post Limit

Overall,I think the 99 message per day and 5 posts per day per person limits
are reasonable. However, I would note that my personal situation is that my
work schedule currently alternates between a series of days when I am generally
too busy to conlang and a group of days when I have more free time and have to
catch up with hundreds of posts which have accumulated while I am busy (which
is why my posts to the list occur in bunches as may have been noticed.) This
means there are quite a few days when I make no posts and others when I might
want to make more than five. I realize I can, as someone suggested, include
several answers in one post, but, as someone else noted, this would make it hard
to signal participation in continuing threads. I wonder if it would be
feasible to work on a 35 posts/week basis instead of a 5/day basis? The overall
quantity should remain the same, but there would be more flexibility in the
schedule. This may not be feasible--I do not know whether the system only works on a
per day basis--but I would be interested in the option if it exists.
