I regulary search my posts to find replies.

Apologies if this has been reposted (but the search doesn't work so...) but I get this now

This search method is currently disabled. Try searching by threads and/or don't use usernames.
Any ideas why it is disabled on WF?

Thanks

    I believe this was done as part of the move to Amazon's cloud service. That was completed earlier today.

    Not sure when it will be working again, but it should be much faster when they re-enable it.

    I use it every day (and I know that lot of users do it too) to stalk my fav users on daily basis so that option is my only way to browse WF forum. Let us know when it will back. Thanks

    BTW: Now I realised that browsing WF like this is my way to get rid of spam threads

    I just revisited this forum after a long break and wanted to find my own posts but couldn't do so. I shall also be glad when the search facility returns.

    Perhaps that's why I'm showing as 0 posts?

    This can help in the meantime.

    Put this into Google search box:
    site:warriorforum.com "YourUserName"

    It will bring your past activity, not in order but you could find what you are looking for.

      One thing I've just noticed.

      When I search for my old posts I don't actually get my posts anymore. I have 9 pages of posts that appear to be for various people and all from 2008, 2 years before I joined.

      Rather weird, should I tell someone or is it just part of the search being disabled?

    This function is back but it is now incorrect, it is showing a random mix of posts by other people that it says are my posts.

    Also, find all threads by this user is now working where before it was not - except it only lists certain threads - this one for example, started by me, did not show up in the search results.

      You are right - it isn't working and there's not a thing we can do about it.

    I just checked my own posts the system is working again. I also checked your posts Kay, and as of right now they are also being reported. Yeah!! I had checked earlier today and it was broken again as you peeps had reported. Hopefully the function settles into it's groove sooner rather than later.

    Cheers

      Here and there - recent posts are showing again but May 5-22 is a blank space and there were a few other "blank periods" when I checked earlier.

      It's getting there so someone is working on it diligently.

        Yup...I see that gap now! Bummer, it looks like most of us have that gap. Good catch.

    Yeah, loosing ground again...my freshest are from 5/4.

    Edit: This post shows up so I guess it's back to the gap effect. Hopefully they will have it stabilized sooner rather than later...the problem is at least a couple weeks old now.

    It is really spotty. Sometimes I can find my posts from the same day, but then they are gone again the next day. There seems to be a certain cutoff date from the past where it doesn't seem to index beyond.

    Yes, unfortunately this issue is really dragging on! Maybe we could do a WAMA with the big cheese so we could ask him when this will be fixed.
