Default Suggestion:timeout notification of 24 hour link connected with New button dialog


I just signed up for the forum and I'm already annoyed!

Specifically after registration was completed, I logged in,
and pressed the "New" button on the menu bar
at the top of the forum's main page
(to look at some recent posts/threads).

It gave me nothing (that's not what annoyed me because
maybe there probably has to be some cached history
..maybe of a "last visit" date..to draw on
to calculate what's "new" in terms of thread dates).

Instead it generated a web version of a dialog box that gave me
the option of a link to see new threads in the
last 24 hours --which I immediately pressed!

Unfortunately I did not know that this link always trips over the
limitation in the forum's search engine which requires 15 seconds
between "searches". Gotcha!

So here's my suggestion
(which probably shouldn't be too hard to implement):

Somewhere (maybe in some php script),
there is stored the text of that particular dialog box that comes up when:
--someone presses "new"
--there are no new messages
--and it comes up with that special notification page
containing just two lines of text,
whose last line has a auto-generated-"here" search link
for threads new threads over the last 24 hours .

Could someone please adjust that last line line so instead of saying:
Quote:
You may search for threads updated during the previous 24 hours, here.
it says:
Quote:
Please wait 15 seconds and then you may search for threads
updated during the previous 24 hours, here.
..or something to that effect..

This is a great forum
(much busier than the dot net sister forum),
and would be of great benefit to new members who join
and want to be "part of the action" right away
that in choosing to use the "New" button straight off
they don't have to deal with being unnecessarily annoyed at the get go
with some poorly designed notification page text..
