Persons module - Limit persons search attempts (anti-flood) and set minimum search characters
I am trying to limit the search attempts as user can perform in a short period of time (anti search flood), if that is possible, because this can significantly slow down the server if too many queries are being performed, or if someone is being ill intended, especially if there doesn't seem to be any setting of limiting the minimum input characters inside the persons search form. I am really concerned about this. Any suggestion is welcome. Thank you.
That's not really a solution. All the registered are actually authorised, but we can't escape the human nature, especially when your community is made of gamers which sometimes they like to screw things around.... Would you at least consider implementing this feature in the future releases? This would save other community owners a lot of headaches and resources, and prevent abuse/flooding of the search system.
