Hello all.. just to clarify.
The point is not to have the request queue be an hour, but to allow more and different members to get their requests in. There are only so many slots available for request during a given day. We generally fill up those slots during the day, which is a good thing. The limit allows for more individuals a chance to get their requests in.
Also as for the weekend or off times, I think we covered this the last time when we put the first restriction on the queue. There is no way for us to know when the queue will be busy, so the restriction will stay on 24/7. You will just have to request in 30 minute blocks. This is the only way to ensure that the request system stays fair.
Thanks for all your feed back.
