    Can't read my thread - Technical Issue

    I'm sorry that I have to ask for help here as I could not find a section where I could write in for technical help.

    I don't know why I am unable to check my threads for replies to my posts. When I clicked 'My Threads', this message would appear: "This forum requires that you wait 20 seconds between searches. Please try again in 1 seconds."

    I waited for 30 seconds etc, but still could not check my thread. I even restarted my laptop but to no avail.

    What should I do?

    Thank you.

    I've just disabled the 20-second time limit. Hopefully that helps :)

    If it starts causing issues with loads on the server I'll have to reconsider, but for now you should be able to search freely.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
