    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. [​IMG]

    I don't mind the flood control
    Probably because I don't search often enough [​IMG]

    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".

    20 sounds fine. 60 is just a pain in the ass. I never try and search here, since I'll never find anything.

    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.
