    What? 1 search every 60 seconds? That's retarded.

    Okay, wtf. Why does the search only allow 1 search every 60 seconds EVEN WHEN YOU'RE A REGISTERED USER!

    I mean, if you want to reduce the dumb questions where a simple Search of The Forum (STF) would have provided an answer, at least let me search the damb forum!

    Seriously, so many questions here have already been answered (colored nametags, for example) that STF should be a the First thing you do. But the wierd timeout rule makes that impossible to do. Oh well.

    Not Really, keeps the server from being brought down to a slug by too many people doing a lot searches.

      That's another reason the search feature on these forums yelds nothing, I tried to use it and it never finds what I'm looking for. Just Google everything, you get results.

          The 60 second limit has only bugged me once or twice. Usually find what I'm after on the first pass.

            Were you signed in? I only encounter this problem with the forum search when I'm not signed in.

                  Click on that link at the top of the page that says "Atari Forums" and see how many forums there are on the server.

                  Pez reduced the search time to 30 seconds and it nearly brought down he server. Try searching before you ask any more stupid questions.

                      That doesn't work, jenius. It doesn't search names.

                          It does if you search by user name.
                          It's on the right side of the keyword search.

                            Yes it does - you can search for all posts by a nickname.
                            Have a look down there, see that little search button, try clicking it

                              First of all, the "jenius" part was a joke, as I am sure many of you realized. Second of all, I always searched for simply "m4d" as nobody else has that string in their name. I just tried "m4d_cl1x0r" and it worked. Thanks for the help.
