I would like to make a small suggestion. I’m not sure if this is even possible for you to do or whether it may be out of your hands.
But when a search fails to find any matches, the board software currently displays a message to the effect, “Sorry no matches were found. Please try some other terms.”
I would suggest changing that message slightly to include the text, “Please try again in two minutes as you must wait at least two minutes before performing another search.”
The reason I suggest this change is primarily for newcomers to the board who may not know this or may forget.
I have performed more than a hundred searches and have used this feature for more than two years now. But I still seem to forget this and make another search only to be told that I have to wait two minutes.
I may just be a little more dim-witted than most people. But my guess is that this happens quite often to many people and a small change may help to prevent that.
I am not sure whether our current level of support would give SDMB techs access to the message to change it, but it seems a simple enough request that the snide nature of the responses, thus far, do not appear to be justified.
