No matter what I search for, I get "The page you requested is not available.". I'm logged in. Do I need special permission, or does search just not work?

It works... sporadically, if at all... and even when it does it's usually with a bunch of missing results.

The search function at UBI forums is worth every penny I pay for it!

Sad thing is that the searching function has worked. In the past.

What does work is searching a specific persons post history, at least for now. I have used that approach twice so far to get the information I remembered seeing. Wish it was otherwise. Sorry.

Hey steve, is there any chance that search will work someday? If I'm not mistaken, you were saying something about posting a thread about it on mod's room. Cannot find that thread right now.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's not perfect, but you can go to Google and type this:

Il2 has a small moderators forum where we can bring specific items up for attention by the Community Manager. We make your requests there.
If you visit any of the other UbiSoft game forums, you'll find the broken search function a topic of discussion. Believe me, the Community Managers know. If and when UbiSoft chooses to act, it will be on their timetable. Until repaired, we will have to do the best we can as members to provide requested information.

The big problem with the previous boards software was the search. The InfoPop "Poops" sold UbiSoft on their lousy software.

Now with a co-zillion postings in the database it's a little difficult to go to another boards software.

------------------

Common problem with software, they sell it to you and then it doesn't work after you've committed your best resources to it.
