... again in a few minutes.

can this please go away? (or at least increase the number of permitted subsequent searchings to 4 or something?)

i often click "view your posts" and if there are no new responses, i'll click on "view new posts" right after it. (except that error message pops up, and i have to wait. not long. but it really is quite annoying.)

even if the subsequent search error prompt is on the 3rd, that'd be enough to make it not annoying. (after all, i'm sure not many people perform 3 searches in a row. surely the 2nd search will offer something interesting to read before performing the 3rd.

The search flood limiter is there to prevent another server meltdown like how the first couple days on the new boards went. It's set for 15 seconds between searches, which is rather generous. I'm not changing it any time in the near future.

Chill out!

ah man this annoys me too. Sometimes I click on "view your posts" when I mean to click "view new posts" or vice versa and then I have to wait.

It's definitely more annoying to have the server crash, though!

i've never experienced nor had to fix a server crash, so please be patient with my questions (which are all honest and inquisitive and not meant to make anyone feel bad. i'm just trying to learn):

would it be a huge deal to reduce the pause to 10 seconds and see if the chances of server crashings increases?

when a server crashes, does it cost money to fix? does it need hours of downtime? do we lose data?

(here i am living up to my old "never satisfied" subnick. i'm really just a troubleshooter.)

now that i've changed my bookmark to point to the correct location, i've not had the error pop up. (at first it was pointing to the "view new posts" when i really wanted to "view my posts" upon first popping in after a length of time, and it'd happen each time)

It normally goes away after a few seconds though. And shouldn't this be in The Whine Tasting?
