    Even search delay has been increased to 20 seconds. How am I supposed to spam every new updated thread?! Curses!!

    many thanks but i can do that show back a year in display opions in each section on this forum, but that means i have to check each sub section etc.

    however if i only want to read the new posts i used to clcik on the NEW posts \ button tab at the top but now it only shows 4 pages now strange ?.

    i think this happened many years ago but it was a forum update to all users....

    I think it's only been this way for a few months. I remember checking my posts about mid-last year and it went back all the way to 2003 for me. Now it's 4 pages like yourself.

    many thanks & looks like it is not just me being blonde & having a silly moment yet again, so it looks like i better go back to each sub section of this forum & have a look around to see what i have missed out.

    however are the mods bringing back the 15 to 20 new post search option back soon ???, & if not why not ha-ha.

    :)

    It will be to decrease server load on searches.

    More than one is done a second, so doing 15 will be a strain as the site gets more popular.

    There are some a-typical server load spikes for a few weeks now. This measure was taken to see if it makes any changes. Currently the forums are located at a spanking new server with tons of memory. The erratic spikes seem to originate from search behavior patterns.

    This is why I restricted the MySQL query a bit next to a series of mySQL optimizations.

    Then again, in the evening at CET we also have a traffic increase as we average out at 900~1000 active users. Short answer I'm looking into some things. So for now I'll loosen up the query restrictions a bit, but a cut-down remains applied.
