OK, so I do admittedly use the search feature not all that often, but when I do, I must wait 30 seconds in case I need to broaden the scope, or refine it, this is a bit absurd. I think maybe the motivation behind this might be to stop flooding or DDOS attacks, but that doesn't really stop anything, all that need to happen is packets flowing, so I can't honestly understand why this is in effect. I'd like to request this either be taken out, or reduced to a more tolerable threshold, like 10 seconds.
I'm not exactly sure why your getting this, I use the search feature a great deal myself and haven't noticed any sort of restricted time limit, even when I specifically tried searching at super fast speed.
I also checked the admin settings and couldn't find anything related to search restrictions and time, so I'm not entirely sure what is going on.

Hi! I think this is default in the forum software. Currently, a backup of the data on this forum is over 450 Mb. You can imagine that searching in this all this data might cause a heavy load on the server. My guess is that this is the reason...
I set it to 5 seconds. Please let me know if the server becomes less responsive.
