    We used to have a search field near the "Post a New Topic" option. We would use it to search through already existing threads. It's now gone. What gives? Is it an error? Or was it deliberately removed?

    'Search' is temporarily disabled while the 'search' database is being moved to a new server. As a result the search indexes need to be rebuilt. Zerosleep said it might be a couple of days before it is back.

    In my experience it used to be absolutely useless, but recently it had become more reliable. Maybe this move will knock it up a notch! BAMM!

    Well, the new server is supposed to be faster so maybe it will improve the search facility.

    I have nothing but good things to say about the search feature. It helps a lot in quickly finding redundant 3SA threads.
