    Okeeeeeeey. [​IMG]

    So, whenever I click on someone's username
    it shows a list of actions.

    One of them is view users post (I clicked it to view ppl's first post xD).
    I clicked it and it says the flood control error thing:

    Code:
    Sorry, the board administrator has enabled search flood control. Please wait at least 60 seconds before trying again.
    So i waited like, 10 minutes ( I ate)
    And it still shows this, even on a different user.
    And the error doesn't occur on the actual search thing..

    I am on Chrome, it thats any help.

    KTHXBAI

    Yes......
    And it's Firefox, not Mozilla. That's like calling Internet Explorer "Microsoft".


    Post searching seems just fine for me, on Firefox.

    Oh, look. The Firefox stared a flame war

    Anyway, this sounds like a server-side problem, so I doubt that the browser has anything to do with it, just using IE8 displays standards compliant websites better because it is 100% standards complient.

    You probably should have made a new thread.

    They'll get you otherwise. [​IMG]

    You know using the "new posts" feature, normal searches, and that quick post search all use the same forum search function, so you can't use ANY of them within 60 seconds of each other.

    Try clearing your cookies and logging in again, sometimes it happens to me. On occasion i've had the flood messege after not using GBAtemp for a few hours.

    For 'View New Posts' you can bypass it by reloading a 'search' from your history.

    I've changed the flood control settings to 3 seconds for everyone.
    Hope that'll help...

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you [​IMG]

    I hate that 60 second waiting period [​IMG] Are we sure it serves any purpose? It is supposed to prevent server overload during a flood, but do the n00bs even use the search function?

    some of the stuff did help before when we didnt have decent servers... but such limits can be lifted safely now

    Good.

    The 'Find Member's Topics' function still doesn't work though.

    When you're browsing a topic and click on a member's sn, I mean. The dropdown list's search functions don't work.
