Any way to somehow sticky this on the top somewhere in DDF?
I thought that referral link is only for amazon? Or all stores? 
Eta seems like only amazon, just add to the wiki in the locked amazon thread!
Seems like a great add on feature.

IIRC Dan was able to simplify his referral code into a small url like when you request LMGTFY it simplifies the whole link to a tiny link, anyway for that? That would be really cool and keep the links out of the way of the members when trying to see the post.

Tweets will now embed automatically with the Tweet URL.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Imagine it would allow you to search faster, you would b able to read all of ddf.. so we have to delay 5 seconds....

All jokes aside, good question why is there such a thing on the forum? It's not ddms when posting 5 comments after each other (post padding for a response from dan.)

To prevent DDS attacks
I know why it's there
but it really is a hassle
maybe there is a way to unblock it for signed in members

also DDMS doesn't have that  as well

and it even lets you search 1 letter
what the forum search does not.

A DDOS attack should be preventable with a 1 second delay as well.

There is probably anyway to protect it as well

But I'm willing to wait one second to perform another search over the car in five seconds.

I'm guessing you add a extension to your browser
But doesn't help for mobile

No extension needed - just visit duckduckgo.com (I set it as my default search engine to save a step), and append !ddf to your search. You can also use !ddms for the main site. There are tons of bangs (what they call what you type after the !), like !a for amazon, and more. You can see the full list here: https://duckduckgo.com/bang
