Searching

When you search for something, unless you go to the advanced search page and define it that way specifically, you get the results as threads.
That's pretty useless if it's one of those giant threads with 100+ pages, and then you're stuck waiting for 30 seconds to search again (which is another issue, but never mind).

Anyway I think the default search results should be in posts.


OK! BYE!

But you can mark "show posts" even without going advanced. And I think the 30 seconds thing is only for guests.

What? No it isn't only for the guests.

Maybe you're a mod or something...

edit: wait a second... I can search several times too! I'm wondering if it all changed when I became a moderator of the TGR forum.

If only mods can search constantly, it makes me feel really guilty for all the times I searched the forums every 10 seconds

About the "show posts" part you're right, but I still think it should be the default, because of the 30 seconds issue.
I guess you don't have it because you're a mod, but I had it before posting this thread.

Yes I do.
It was actually worse at the moment, I accidentally clicked to open the search page in a new Tab (without actually searching yet), closed it, and then when I typed a search into that little box you get outside the typical search page it told me I need to wait 10 seconds before I can search again.

I think the 30 seconds limit should be lifted for all members who have above X number of posts.

Thanks anyway, and yes, the rule should be lifted for everyone above X posts.

Why's that, anyway? I mean, isn't it for not making the forum engine too heavy or something?

I guess it takes some hard drive activity to search the entire forum database.

An other thing which I don't like is that you can't look for short words. Some while ago, I made a thread and after like 1 month, I had trouble finding it and the search option was useless. I typed the whole name of the thread and it said that all of these words were short and weren't taken into account in the search. Oh, and the search returned no result.

In that case you can make a search without any keywords but with all the threads opened by you.
Unless you're looking for a really old thread / you open 300 threads a day it should be a matter of seconds to find what you want.
