    Anybody happen to know why it's impossible to search for posts between 2014 and 2018 currently? The posts are still there, they just can't be found in the search box, or when One searches for their own posts or those of someone else.

    I do not know specifically why the search function is not working properly. Telamon did post this right after our host had issues.

    I will prompt him to check again with the host.

    Thank you

    Just heard back from the "Telamon"

    He is still working on the table, I believe where the Search Index is stored. It was corrupted during our Host's outage. Said table is NOT cooperating and is taking longer to rebuild than expected. Telamon is actively working on it and hopes to have Search functioning again real soon. The real kind, not the Soon(TM) normally used

    Thank you for your Patience !

    As expected, the search index has dropped in priority due to higher priority things including anniversary event.

    In the meantime, here is a work around to search our forums through Google. Prepend (means put in front) site:uorforum.com then your search terms. In the example below I searched for skinned goat
