Is this not working for anyone else? I have tried over the last couple of days to use it (and from a few different computers at all) but it keeps saying that it can't access the search daemon. Is this happening to anyone else?

Perhaps I've missed some announcement or thread about this - it does seem a major issue with the site - but I haven't seen anything. Apologies if there is already something up.

Dave appears unwilling or unable to grapple with it.

It's happened before. Hopefully he will fix it soon.

Ya know you can use Google to search the message board.  It's actually better at it.

The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Ahh - that's what I ran my search for, so that's why it worked.

I'll echo dead0man's sentiments. When I'm looking for a thread it's easier to use google, type in the title and, add "atlas forum" or "uselectionatlas.org" on the end of it then to find it with the forum's search function.

Hi,
For now, I've relinked the search button to the Atlas google search page.  Will take some research to figure out how to fix the sphinx search - the service provider was not very helpful in fixing the problem after the upgrade.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave, the new search function is significantly less useful. If the previous system was irreparable, fair enough, but otherwise could we possibly revert?

I miss the "find all topics by" search. Just throwing that out there.

I'm not counting Dave Leip.  He used to be the only moderator when I first started posting here.  There were no "infraction points" or anything like that back then.  I'd just get an email message once in a while that said something like, "Please avoid drunken, emotional diatribes.  Thank you, Dave Leip" or "Please refrain from linking to pornographic websites.  Thank you, Dave Leip."

Hi,
My expectation is that I will work to restore this after the election.

Hi,
The search function has been restored.  The new index will not be available until 3am or so.  (current index is from July 30).  Please limit use when the forum is slow.
Enjoy,
Dave
