    Default wait 5 seconds

    Once I am on this site I get a window that says "wait 5 seconds" before beginning to search. Then it says wait 3 sec. or 2 or ??? Why? I have not seen this on any other forums.

    We set it up so that there is 5 seconds between each search a user does.
    We did this to help prevent server load.
    At any given time we have could have up to one thousand or more users on the web site.
    If everyone were doing searches at the same time it would bog down the server.
    We did this in hopes that it would prevent that.

    Thanks. I was wondering. Makes sense.

    Also, similar restrictions are in place at many forums. Flood controls on posting and searching help protect servers from accidental and intentional attacks.
