    Is this limitation currently necessary? I can't tell you how many times I have hit the wrong search button and had to wait 20 seconds to search again. Would 5 or 10 seconds consume too much bandwidth?

    It used to be 16 seconds. That 4 extra seconds seems so much longer @.@

    Time dilation.

  4. Is that somehow related to work time vs weekend time ?

    I hate this as well. I am the queen of hiting the wrong button! Its super annoying!

    I really wish it wasn't like that. I usually forget what I was trying to do when I have to wait.

    Same here...I just find it annoying.

    It is bot control, if I remember correctly.

    I, for some strange reason, always double tap the "new posts" button. Never any other ones. Just "new Posts." So I have to wait longer >.<

    That is to limit the load on the processor. I dropped it down to 5 seconds and we'll see how it goes.

    It peaks at times depending on when more members are online performing searches but it seems okay so far. If we notice the forum getting slower to respond that will likely be one of the first places to look. :)

    Thank you for changing it! I also accidentally double click on New Posts every once in awhile. Annoying to wait so long. This is much better.

    I've never really found this annoying. If I can't search for another fifteen seconds or whatever, I just wander off and look at another forum page, or a different website altogether.

    I know that Mike is having to perform a huge balancing act here, trying to keep as many of the useful and fun bits of the forum without overdoing it on bandwidth. That's why he pared down the user info to the left of each post. We have, in the past, had some pretty big problems with forum slowdowns. Fishlore's a popular place. We often show up very high in Google rankings when you search out a topic that has been discussed here. This leads to a lot of visitors, each of whom might search out other information when they find the place.
