Well, I think that in terms of being a game, the forums are more beneficial the way they are. Constantly scrolling to the bottom of the page (since the pages are medium length) would slow down game play and not really add anything.
I’m not sure on the 4 per day limit. Game pacing is always somewhat annoying, but is the game even “finished”? Also, the puzzles may pick up quite a bit, and a lot of things may not require too many forum visits. Perhaps look at forum visits as “grinding” MMO style, and developers wanting people to explore more options than what comes down to a very simple (so far) turn based fighting game. If that were all the game was about, you’d have people complaining within a week for lack of content. The limitations need to be set in such a manner that you cannot outlevel the quests through grinding to make them trivial, at least not as quickly as someone thinking through the quests. This is a tough balancing act for sure.
Right now, the game feels relatively complex. Not overly so, but nicely, with a short learning curve. As it progresses, perhaps we’ll see more than enough stuff to worry about without contending with spam emails or such.
