I know it isn't a big deal, but I've been trying to use the search feature, but it looks like it's bugged. I'd type a member number in, for example, and it wouldn't return any results, despite that I know they've posted in that forum. Can someone please explain? Thanks.

Huh. So I'm not the only one to have issues with it. At first, I thought it might have been a symptom of TM's undead thread crash like the recent posts bug (and therefore it would eventually fix itself), but now that I think about it, I had difficulty with it before that happened.

Dikiyoba thinks that it needs to be fixed, or we won't able to grumble at newbs about using the search feature to answer commonly asked questions.

In the day and hour of the moon with sun in scorpio prepare thou a waxen tablet and enscribe thereon the seals of Cthulhu and Dagon; suffumigate with the incense of Zkauba and set aside.

On Hallowmas eve thou must travel to some lonely place where high ground overlooks the ocean. Take up the tablet in thy right hand and make of the sign of Kish with thy left. Recite the incantation thrice and when the final word of the third utterance dieth in the air cast thou the tablet into the waves saying:

'In His House at R'lyeh Dead Cthulhu waits dreaming, yet He shall rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth.'

And He shall come unto you in sleep and show His sign with which ye shall unlock the secrets of the UBB forum.
Anyway, the search function can't return deleted topics, and it sometimes has some trouble finding anything at all. Make sure the member number is correct. If all else fails, try Google and search for some text the topic contained - most of this forum is regularly crawled.

Blame WKS for destroying member post histories.

I've noticed that too. The search engine won't give me any results no matter what I search.

We will still be able to grumble - it just won't be as fair as it is now. We all have our vices... don't take newb-baiting from us!
