View active topics never brings up any topics... which makes no sense that there are no topics that could be considered active.

Also, View unread posts, View new posts, View your posts, and View unanswered posts are all not working right now.

I've never been able to "view active topics".
The other 4 sometimes don't work for me, but it isn't too terribly often.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN WE JUST MAKE A STICKY THREAD ABOUT THIS?

The same problems with the search feature come up again and again, and it'd save a lot of time if we just had a sticky thread about it at the top of this forum explaining what issues the mods know about and which ones seem to be impossible to fix.

Stickified

I believe part of the issue is crawlers, web bots, etc... doing searches & indexing the forums. We had it set previously that once a bot, crawler, etc searches, they would have to wait 9999 seconds to search again. This unfortunately, interfered with human "guests".

I'll check a couple of other settings and permissions to see what can be done.

This should be working now.
"Your Unread Posts" "New Posts" "Your Posts" "Unanswered Topics" and of course "Active Topics".
Apparently a setting was set to "disable" that prevented the "Active Topics" feature from working. I went through each forum and turned it on.
All 5 of these are working for me now. I have tested from a Linux Ubuntu w/ Firefox as well as multiple Windows machines [XP, Vista, and 7] with Chrome, Firefox and IE browsers.

What is the deal with sorry you may not search at this time please try again in a few minutes?

Its annoying even more so since i dont consider "your posts" to really be a search.

Pls explain is system updating? My internet just suck the bag?

Think of it as a database query. When you are clicking on "your posts", it's performing a search for all posts specific to you.

It's not even showing 'New Posts'. I keep getting that "unavailable at this time, try again in a few minutes" reply. I give it a couple of hours, and it's still doing it. I don't know what's been posted on the boards for the past four days.

Search should be consistently working again for everyone, since about 10am on the 23rd.

(Except for the down time we had this morning.)

If there's any more problem, let us know.

is the search function down again?
I have been getting the "not available at this time. Please tray again in a few minutes." message for the last 2 hours.

It very often seems to have this kind of problem.

It isn't sporadic for me, just doesn't work anymore. I've tried different machines, browsers, and connections, just to see if it was an issue with a narrow config or something, but no dice.

Yeah, it feels like forever for me. Not sure how long it's actually been out, but it's a pain.

Been happening to me as well. I'll stop in, check to see if its working, and if it isnt, i'll head off to other things for a bit and come back and try again... Wonder what's causing it.

It's still intermittent for me, messing up more often than not.
