    TSM "common search term"

    Hey,

    I use the "common search term" setting when posting glyphs, today I got a message which I didn't bother reading - I think it mentioned something about freezing, since as of now all my auctions freeze for a pretty long time before I can post/cancel them, making the common search term option almost useless in terms of post/cancel speel.

    Feeling stupid since I didn't read what the popup said but I can't seem to get it to show up again so, any help is appreaciated :P

    Thanks

    The scan may appear to "freeze" for a while when it's using the common search term, but once it's done it'll process all the auctions for that search term at once. Using common search terms is still just as fast as ever.

    I see, thanks for clearing that up.

    However, with the current freeze the common search scan is taking just as long as the non-common scan. It scans all the glyphs one by one, and once that is down it behaves like the common scan used to do for me, with the post/cancel bar counting up the glyphs really fast. But the total time of freeze/bar going up is as long for me as the non-common cancel/post method.

    Is this intendend or have I done something wrong?

    The scan works the same exact way as it always has, Auctioning just isn't processing them until the end. One thing that has always been part of the common search term code that you may be seeing is that TSM will automatically ignore the common search term if using it wont save you any time. If you only have one glyph in your bags and there's 40 pages of glyphs on the AH, it won't use the common search term. If you have 100 (unique) glyphs in your bags, it'll scan the 40 pages instead of 100.

    TSM is smart enough to ensure that entering a common search term where applicable (ie glyphs / gems / enchants / etc...not so much stuff like xmog gear or rare pets) will always have either no effect or be beneficial.
