Searching

Does the search fuction for these forums work or is it just me?

I was tring to search for any threads about young up and commng players so i could compile a list of teenage players by ranking like on the SteveG ATP site but the search fuction found no results.

So i tried searches for things like the Australian Open which there are loads of threads on at the moment..still found no results.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

nope, we disabled search cos it's too heavy on the servers

You should disable the search-link! It's quite irritating that there are no results! Nobody knows that its disabled and wonders why it doesn't work!

Don't know anything on how the search engine affects the servers, but other boards has a limit to the searches. That way you can only perform one search e.g. every 30 or 40 seconds. Whould that be possible here?

I am no expert, but I doubt that would be possible. If the search was enabled, tons of people would be searching. To limit it would prevent most people from searching anyway.

How would a time limit between searches prevent most people from searching? The time limit would only there to prevent many searches after another, you would still be able to find any information you were looking for.

The board crashes enough as it is.

Enabling search would send it into meltdown.

We tried the time limit on search before and it doesn't work. The bottom line is we need to upgrade our database server to support search on WTAworld (due to the sheer number of stored posts) and that obviously costs money. We are working to find a solution to finance another upgrade but we have no idea when this might happen.

OK, thx for explaining About the financing there's the possibility of setting up a page for donations.
