    Maximum Search Results to Return

    With posts no longer counting in several sections, I was wondering if it would be possible to increase the "Maximum Search Results to Return"?

    This would serve two fold...
    1) It would increase the number of results found when looking up information
    2) It would/could show a better range of posting patterns those those interested in post counts.
    ACP > vB Options > Message Searching Options > Maximum Search Results to Return

    The default is 500, which in most cases is likely good enough, but doubling it would not be all that much of a strain on the servers and would allow me to see a wider range of posting quality when I am seeking to buy links (based on post count) as well as give me a broader idea of the quality of answers someone gives....not to mention allow me to simply find better information.

    Just a thought,

    My Homesteading blog is not worth reading
    My Magick site is not worth it's server space
    My Occult forum is likely something you'd not have an interest in
    My wife's Hedgewitch site is worth checking out though...

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I added a zero to the default value. Let's see if anything breaks.
