    Hello Everyone!

    We are currently moving, or plan to move very soon, our site to an updated/faster server and we expect some temporary downtime related to this migration.

    While we do apologize for hiccups during the site migration, we are sure that you will be happy with the end result.

    If you have any questions or concerns related to the above, please post here.

    Many thanks to all our members new and old for your continued support.

    Thanks for the info.
    Seems more stable and snappier now than it has been in a good while, even before the recent oddness....

    It looks like there are a lot of threads missing and a lot of search history missing. Will that data come back under the new server?

    +1 I noticed that my advanced searches are only turning up results from 2014 and earlier.

    Threads are there but they are not indexed in the database, so they dont exist for the search.

    For example, I have no threads started for the database, but I can see all of them browsing the forums.

    I can't speak for the current situation, but there have been several times where the "search" seemed to be missing some or all of its results. The problem was always resolved after a few days.

    It probably takes a while to index all of our silliness.

    Threads are still missing in the search results. Will this ever be fixed?

    Search is a pain guys, and google doesn't really work for many situations (advanced research per title, per user etc...).

    It's a shame as many times would be easy to help people linking them to the old and good discussions, with plenty of great advice and shared knowledge.

    Now all this stuff it's plain lost and buried.

    I’ve found every thread of my own I’ve searched for on google.

    I don't need to find my own threads. I was searching for old discussions about stuff, but I failed miserably. Google doesn't work for advanced searches, and does produce very scattered results, so it can't be a solution.
