    Complaints About SearchingI

    I'm guessing that you get a lot of complaints about the search function.

    1. I frequently hit the 30 second limit on searches. Sometimes I type something in wrong, and have to search again. Other times I need to refine my search. It's annoying to have to wait for the time to expire. Could you at least change it to 15 seconds? I haven't seen this kind of limit in other forums.

    2. Today I wanted to see threads on Specialized bikes. I searched for "Specialized" but apparently that word is too common or short. That means I can't make that search.

    Just wanted to vent.

    Yes, there are limits on our search engine, and it's been a thorn for a long time. The problem is that it's not as scalable as Google Site Search, which isn't free, unfortunately, for us to install on the site. It's cost prohibitive with the amount of search bandwidth we would consume.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
