    This forum requires that you wait 45 seconds between searches.

    Is there something that can be done about getting rid of this archaic requirement? I realize that it is an attempt to keep bots from abusing the system, but it REALLY gets in the way of legitimate searches, including viewing my own recent threads and recent posts, searching forums for an old post or for a particular topic of interest.

    I've been a member of many forums over a couple of decades and haven't run into such strong restrictions on searches ever before. If this is a topic that has been discussed before, forgive me, but I wasn't able to search for it without being told that I had to wait before trying to rephrase my search keywords.

    Interesting - never noticed that. I logged out and tried a few searches and found the TN Advanced search does make you wait. I will forward your concern to ADMIN and get back to you shortly.

    Wow... awesome! Thanks for paying attention! I really didn't expect this to go anywhere. I appreciate that.

    More power to you. I use them to get out detecting 45 seconds earlier. My batteries are already recharged. (it can be a lot more than 45 seconds if you're trying to find something difficult to search for)

    Here is a little trick I use that works with EVERYTHING and in turn bypasses any search timeout. Open another tab with your favorite search engine (I use Google Chrome Search) and enter:

    True. I do use Google's site search on occasion to limit Google's searches to a particular site. What that, of course, will NOT help with, though is these two "searches" (apparently behind the scenes, the forum software considers these to be searches):

    I'm pretty sure there are some other built-in "searches" that will also trigger that message but I can't remember where I've run into them, so take that with a grain of salt. But those two... definitely.
