- Search flood control
- Post flood control
Post flood control controls how long you wait in between making new posts. Making a post means you need to write all the information, who you are, when you're posting, where you're posting, your actual post, etc... to the database. This takes some time since writing to the database takes longer than reading from it (but not as long as searching). If there was no delay between posts and many members were active at the same time, there could be errors if two posts tried to be written at the exact same time.
With all that in mind, let us know what you think about the current settings for flood control on BZPower and what you think makes sense given our current level of activity.
