Why is search still down? Some nasty technical prob? Do we need to do another fund raiser to tackle this? Inquiring minds etc.

the goog works better anyway. i'm glad search being down has forced me to use it.

apart from the logging in problem but if that was fixed...

Bein' Sean Bean (LocalGarda), Thursday, 9 March 2017 12:30 (one year ago) Permalink

Google's ok, no complaints, was just wondering.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 9 March 2017 12:44 (one year ago) Permalink

No searching by user, to pick one obvious use of search that Google can't do.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 March 2017 13:47 (one year ago) Permalink

can't say i've ever wanted to search by user.

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 March 2017 14:57 (one year ago) Permalink

searching by user is p creepy tbh (not saying i haven't done it.....)

flopson, Thursday, 9 March 2017 15:21 (one year ago) Permalink

searching back thru yr own "recent" posts is p useful to me -- not sure when the cut-ff for recent is

= who cares what anyone else ever said anyway :p

you can still do that fyi, by clicking on My Recent Posts

xxxp yes i know you can, that's why i mentioned it

mark s, Thursday, 9 March 2017 15:42 (one year ago) Permalink

tbf there is no such thing as a rare ned

mark s, Thursday, 9 March 2017 15:43 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah, it sucks that you can no longer do fun harmless targeted username searches like

"my girlfriend" AND displayName:flopson

I feel like nakh probably came back to ilx a couple months ago but I just don't know it because the search function is down and he only posts in places I never look at like the rolling metal thread

it also sucks that you can't filter google results by date, so you can't, for instance, see how ilx's relationship with Steely Dan has evolved over the past 17 years, which for me is an urgent and nagging concern

Okay I'm changing my vote.

Andrew Farrell, Friday, 10 March 2017 12:31 (one year ago) Permalink

it also sucks that you can't filter google results by date

yeah, also it lacks the ease at which you can search for mentions of yourself on threads you don't read or when other posters make display names that pun on yours.

AND AND AND it sucks when you are looking for an image post you made on a thread that is no longer active and you forget the title of it .... I was reduced to looking at last modified dates for images on my computer to figure one out.

ILX Search is/was a magnificent thing -- those who designed it and maintained it should be very proud. Please bring it back soon.

looks what happens if you take this thread title as an imperative

This. Pretty much every other search functionality I'm forced to use at work and in life is face-rendingly awful.

what's the outlook on when/if it will be back?

As soon as our old posts have been updated with casual mentions of popular consumer goods and services, iirc. Why don't you have a Snickers while you wait?

Did they try restarting it? Or blowing in the back of it? Maybe it's just a blown fuse?

I'm trying to think of things to do when a search engine is on the skids... Oh, did we try installing Marissa Mayer as CEO?

My Recent Posts works now!! It delivers two links to all my recent posts, but that is just a tiny detail compared to it working again. Thank you.

yea it makes you just paranoid enough to go back to the thread and check you didn't double post, nice new feature stet

johnny crunch, Friday, 14 April 2017 11:40 (one year ago) Permalink

Ha, on one thread I did double post so Most Recent Posts shows a quadruple.
