Search not working?

Lately when I try to search something I only get back a few recent threads.
Were some of the older threads deleted?

Search has not been working for over a week...the geeks are on it, courtesy of our very own cuda2k, but it must be a significant issue because it hasn't gotten fixed yet.

The Google search strategy offered by JunkYardBike is a fine alternative:

"[your search term(s)] site:bikeforums.net"

Should be fixed in the next day or two. Database issue that is time consuming to correct so they're scheduling it for when impact to users will be the lowest.

I don't think it has anything to do with you being a slow learner, just that I look at the Forum Suggestions every once in a while to see if I can help answer questions, and have noticed quite a few people asking about this.

I am certain that just about everyone here in C & V is faster than I am, but I do go as fast as I can .

Why doesn't BF just use Google as the search engine?
