  1. This forum requires that you wait 15 seconds between searches. Please try again in 12 seconds.
I get the above error a lot, and I was just thinking how nice it would be to have that limitation lifted when you hit 5,000 posts. It would be kind of fun, similar to Genius status at 1,000. Just a random thought ;)

I don't know if there is a way to program that in, but I know Mods don't have it and it would be a nice feature to earn.

It is nice not to have that wait, I'll admit, however I'm pretty sure it's rather intensive on the database to generate searches, which is why the limit is there. I don't really know, though... Chris would be the man for that one.

I know it is taxing, but there aren't very many people with >5,000 posts, so it shouldn't make a huge impact. We'll see what Chris says. I'll send him a PM.

I will take a look and see what I can do. I don't think there is a restriction on the Google search.

Thanks Chris. I'll start using the Google search option more, I didn't even realize that it only searched EiC. I thought it would search the web. Anyway, it would still be nice for the "new posts" button.

Interesting, I didn't realize the Google search only did EiC either. The 15 second wait gets annoying sometimes, especially when you accidentally hit it again and have to wait it out.

It's a good reminder for when I mindlessly hit the new posts button two consecutive times ;)

Of course, all super mod staff and families of super mod staff would have to be excluded from this contest to ensure fairness :)
