I think it would be a good idea to bring to attention what seems to be an extremely broken feature:



It won't find anything because it omits just about every word.

Interestingly a search for 'Jesus' or 'Satan' is accepted. :nervous:

Well, I will try and rebuild the search index and see if that helps.

I'd like to point out that random posts seem to contain this image, for no apparent reason.
 
 *blinks*  It's linked to the nervous smiley?!

 It's that stupid NOVA image that Primus(IIRC) uses as an avatar...
 
 And to prove I'm not going bonkers...

That image is totally random in its appearance?

Rebuilding the index is gonna take around an hour on their servers....dammit, if we were still on the freespaceserver then it would only take like 5 minutes
 
 By the way I think the search indices got screwed up when we upgraded to vb 3.0.5....I would have upgraded to 3.0.6 but I heard that it was simply to buggy.

Dunno. It just started happening one day. Didn't even think to fluch the cache, for some reason... but It was odd.

There was a time that it was showing between posts, too... buggy code.

Well, all of the avatars were showing, but yours was indexed in the cache as being nervous.gif.

It was probably a glitch in my download.
