View Full Version : Reducing Search Limit for Subscribers

May 21st, 2004, 03:39 AM
Hello all.

I was wondering, now that the boards are faster, can the 1 search per 20 seconds limit be reduced slightly for those who subscribe? If I understand right the purpose is to not bog down the server (which is partially fixed by the new server) and to avoid having people just coming in and searching away until something starts smoking. Is it possible to have a different restriction for Subscribes? I suggest perhaps one every 15 seconds or so.

Sometimes I'll click the get new posts link and then I'll open up the link to a post and it will sound familiar and I'll do a search on it to find if it has ever been answered before and I get the 20 second message.

Just a thought:)

It's a very good suggestion, however it is not an option on vbulletin. I will consider lowering the search time to 10secs after a few days so I can get accurate stats on server performance.
