Search Feature?

I take it the search feature is still off-line right?

I know of several other forums who have found, and know that the search feature is the main culprit of the bandwith/processor hawging.

I have 2 proposals..

#1. Charge for "Premium Accounts" which would run about $5 and would allow searching.. The only problem with that I know is that I wouldn't get an account. and i'd just re-ask the questions.

So the other thing I was thinking.. money permitting. Can the search feature be moved to it's own.. smaller.. server.

That way only the search feature would be slow. Something we could just live with.

Not a big issue. We know what is wrong with this feature. To bring it back and working properly, we have to create a whole new database index of every message. This will take a few days to generate. Stay tuned.

Re: Search Feature?

The only problem with charging for the search feature, is then you have people asking the same thing time, and time again.. More than already... Being able to search helps this a little...
