Forum searches no longer go back beyond early 2010 even when set for the maximum possible span. This is easily tested by picking obviously used words/terms and searching for them (say, "Iraq" in Forum=4). Is this intentional?

March 13, 2010 to be exact.

Also, you can use a$ as your search term and it'll return all posts, if you don't have a specific term you want to look for.

SHouldn't be intentional, may be related to a table format change back that time frame though. I'll put in a ticket to get it fixed.

Mine goes back to December 2009. Only shows 751 entries then stops. Maybe it's limited to a number?

If I go to the "your posts" section, it shows my whole post history. The posts still exist. So, I tried searching for individual posts of mine. For example, I posted about the Republic Targe once, and another time about a Mannequin Head. So I ran a search for these specific phrases with myself as a user and came up with nothing. Something is seriously borked.

Unless full-featured Forum Search is now a Premium feature. Smiley: lol Smiley: wink

A search for "Iraq" in everything returned only 62 entries. One from Dec 25, 2009 and then it jumps to April 9, 2013.

Same thing with Tirith's posts. Dec 25, 2009 and then a jump to April 2013. Maybe I didn't post on Dec 25, 2009. Smiley: lol

Edit: Yeah, I only posted in Kirby's journal on that date. Weird stuff.

Things are somewhat broken on forum search, there is a ticket to work on it. We'll get it straightened out eventually.

Forum search is now listed as repaired. Please take it for a test spin and let me know if anything is missing that shouldn't be.

Thanks!

It looks like it's not going farther back than July 2, 2005. Not sure if intentional or not, but it's certainly an improvement.
