Any chance to lower the flood control when searching? The 60 seconds seems a bit too long, and sometimes it gets in the way for me. Maybe change it to 15 seconds, like the posting control, or even 30 seconds? I think this new server could handle it.

I hate when I search something then it comes up with an error then I have to wait 60 seconds |:
I go do something for 60 seconds then forget all about it.

Seriously let's say you make an error or anything, it's a search, you don't find anything in 1 try.

Make it around 10 sec or 15 sec.

Or anyways I think the search system is google in gbatemp? Just use google official site.

I think he's talking about the "View New Posts".
Yeah, mostly "View New Posts" and searching for users' topics and posts, and various in-forum searching that doesn't use the main "Search" function in the top bar.

Well, It must of been put there for a reason. Maybe ask Ace.
I think it was put in place back when the old server was in use and wasn't as good as this one. Costello would probably be the one to ask; Costello is the technical administrator, Ace is mostly disciplinary.

Wait, there's no time limit between search, just tired....
Whoa, he's right!

When did that happen?
I didn't notice; just tried two rapid fire searches...

Almost every online forum has a search flood control. It puts an unbelievable amount of stress on the server, so I doubt they will remove it. Plus, you can just use a GBAtemp-specific Google search for no flood control.
