    Hi Dan,

    When searching (usually for threads so I don't double up), it's set so you can only do 1 search every 30 secs.

    Is this something I can change?

    Is this something you can change?

    Is this something that can't be changed?

    Is this something you can change but don't want to?

    I don't use it that often, but it's kinda annoying.

    Also do you prefer stuff like this made into a thread, or would you rather a pm?

    Hope you're better!

    Its something I can change but it's there to prevent spam and people deliberately trying to bring down the site with continuous unqualified searches or other searches that create high load on the database.

    I can lower this down to say 15 seconds but anything less is risky

    Oh and I prefer these questions here as they then provide the same information for all who may have the same question later

    OK, thanks for that.

    To prevent spam I can be patient!

    cheers and have a good one.
