The new "search" tool is fantastic but...

I really appreciate the new "search" tool, but limiting it to five answers by category greatly reduces its effectiveness!

(and a minor complaint: the adventure log answers appear in the "wiki" and "adventure log" section.

    Ok, so it looks like there is a bit of wonkyness going on with the Search function for a series of folks here. This is obviously another major game breaker, so I am kicking it up on my high priority list. Please be aware that I am looking into this issue and will be getting back to you on it.

    Yes I am - new Community Manager, please see the forum posts on the subject. I am trying to go through the backlog we have here in the Support, Questions, etc. and get a perspective on the most major issues the site is facing right now so we can get a solid game plan in place to roll out fixes. This, as I mentioned, is clearly a game breaker.

    Is there a place where we can see that priority list ?

    I am still making it presently, but I will let you all know once I have it done. I am looking for all things right now that most impede ability to properly use the site for your games.

    I say general wonkyness because the issue is not exactly the same for everyone reporting in here, and there have been some really weird results. Within the context of those mixed results, yes a blank page certainly qualifies as part of the wonkyness.

    Slowly, we're approaching the second anniversary of that being not fixed.

    This is in the queue of items still. We will be getting to it, promise.

    5 days to two years- and still nothing.
    Concerned that the state is no longer assigned, but closed.

    State closed, two years since the Reforging... I guess the message is clear.

    Why not re-open a new ticket? It might simply be a matter of confusion.

    What was your search criteria? I'm attempting Neighborhoods?

    Whatever the search criteria. It's a display problem. The images used in the pages are displayed according to the code in the original page.
    But on the search page, it makes the pictures overlapping with following results and/or force displacement of the following images (that are also pushing the following in a cascade manner).
    Been ages that way. Like since the Reforging. Like since... years...

    No I mean what was the exact term you used to create the screenshot above. What did you search. I'd like to package this for tech support.

    Wow, isn't there a way to look for Looking for Players for online games? I am planning to run one, and it would be cool to get that. Surprised it is not here.
