BCB Search facility

Postby Lord Rother » 24 Mar 2021, 21:18

Am I missing something?

Probably been asked /discussed before but it’s bloody hopeless for finding anything that’s beyond recent memory.

There’s a new release by a band (Permian Incident) I’d forgotten about but THINK I enjoyed a few years ago. Wanted to look back to see what I said at the time but no chance.

Any tips?

Yeah, there've been a few technical glitches that have wiped out the ability to search beyond the last couple of years. Google seems to have better results than the site's search.

It's also possible to click on your own name and then view all your posts. You can search for a particular page pretty easily, so if you can narrow it down pretty well in the time frame, that makes it easier.

It's also better to search by words that aren't likely to appear anywhere else. "Permian" should fit the bill pretty well. Put in the board link, plus your handle, plus the word Permian. And lo and behold!

It's never been the same since Zlib compression.

Whatever happened to him, he seemed a nice guy.

Everything prior to January 2020 in Nextdoorland that wasn't a poll has gone.
