Search function
« on: March 12, 2015, 05:03:10 PM »
Hi Mods,
     For some reason the search function isn't working for me.  When I try to do a search I get a message saying that I'm not allowed to search.  When you get a chance can you take a look?  
Thanks!

OUR WEBHOST UPDATED THEIR SQL DATABASE SOFTWARE.  THIS HAS DISABLED THE SEARCH FUNCTION.  PLEASE USE GOOGLE TO SEARCH CONTENT.

The search function has been disabled.  It stopped working when our WebHost upgraded their SQL.  Please use Google to search content.  

RU stopped limiting the ability to send and receive PM's based on post count long ago.

At this point there are just 3 boards that remain invisible if you have less than 5 posts, and I will be increasing this to 25.  These areas include private member content that should not be viewed by the merely curious.  The content on these boards is only for real members of our community.  If I see any bullshit posts just to get access to these areas I might ban you.

This board has no links to downloads anymore, so please don't waste your five posts just to find something we don't have.


To use google to search RU add site:RavishU.com in your google window and it will search only the forums and function like a forum search engine.

Example:
site:RavishU.com gangrape

"gangrape" being the term you might want to search.

So much oppression in our culture is based on shame about sex: the oppression of women, of cultural minorities, oppression in the name of the (presumably asexual) family, oppression of sexual minorities. We are all oppressed. We have all been taught, one way or another, that our desires, our bodies, our sexualities, are shameful. What better way to defeat oppression than to get together in communities and celebrate the wonders of sex?

I guess this explains why I never have good results with the search function here.
The rumors about me are scurrilous, depraved rantings of a sick mind, and I categorically deny any sense of falsehood attributed to them.

Google search is not exactly correct and not exhaustive. Had you thinkt about fixing the local search function?

We will not be restoring the search function. While we have a new web host, the data is so huge at this point, just three searches a day would get us shut down for overloading our bandwidth. Sorry folks.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

My email keeps showing even though I put hide email on my profile while regestering

Pretty sure only you can see it. Says hidden when I take a look. Or are you talking about searching?

What about coding the search to go directly to Google (or Bing if you're into that) and executing the search from there?  That way it should bypass searching through the local SQL and shouldn't crush the local bandwidth.  It could look like this site but in reality it's a Google search on their backbone, not this one.

I don't know if that's feasible, just spitballing here.
