When I go into the chat lobby and use the search facility, no results are returned, even for strings I know are present.

  • @Loong -It's weird. When you repeat the search, it gets different results each time

  • @Valorum That's status-by-design for the easter eggs.

  • @Randal'Thor Hmm, scifi doesn't seem to have any other Easter eggs.

  • @WadCheber Damn, spoke too soon. Bug me again tomorrow. Or bug Adam - he's the guy to sort this out; I'm just repeating what he's said on main meta.

  • @Valorum Half full = half empty. No, seriously, it should be fixed now. Can you still see any issues?

It should be working again now.

See Chat search is returning no results on main meta, where a dev has just posted that a fix is underway. At least for me, the chat search facility is back to normal.

    I've just tested it. It's still not working properly.

  • Results seem patchy for me.

    @Valorum Hmm. The answer on main meta suggested the fix might take a while to complete. Let's wait a bit and see if it's fully resolved in the next hour or two.

  • Re-indexing is complete now. Let me know if you see issues.

  • @Adam - It's only showing up to April 2015. I'll leave it a while longer, but I thought you'd want to know.

  • @Adam - Still only producing results up to mid-2015.

    Hrm. That's weird. Will look.

  • @Adam - I don't know if this helps, but the range of dates produced had been slowly expanding as of a couple of hours ago, but it stalled out at some point since then.

  • @WadCheber Good to know, thanks. I don't know too much about how chat indexing works. This may be a side-effect of the reindexing earlier? I don't think it should be, but hey. Fingers crossed that I don't have to do anything. ;) It's not throwing exceptions like earlier, so whatever is going on looks to be a new problem.

  • This should be totally resolved now per Nick Craver.
