Forum search broken? ( *solved* )

Postby Luke » Tue Oct 07, 2008 3:07 am

Seems to have been broken for a while now (few weeks?) so I thought I'd post.

any search I do comes up with:

"The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: fps gravity particles.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards."

This happens if there are no useful results (i think it means fewer than 5 hits), even google brings up only 2 hits for those keywords with barely any match:

don't think it's fewer then 5, even searches for "physics", doesn't work

(which is a lot more then 5, http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&c ... arch&meta=)

Cannot get any search to work no matter what the keywords are used. Common or uncommon.

Seems the search indexes need to be rebuilt from the look of a quick google.

Unfortunately the big prune recently has made the forums a lot less useful :(
