I have been reading the discussion about the migration of the forums/fixing the forums.

Right now, the forums are extremely fast. Searching for terms under 5 seconds (Oracle in my case).

Whatever it is you have done, wow!

I agree- nice job! How about telling us Gentoo users what exactly was fixed, and how was it done? Just a brief explanation will do- no need for a big involved tutorial.

Thanks,

How is the load/stability of the site been since the fixes have been implemented. On the user end it seems quite nice. I am wondering if the oft-thoughtabout migration is still on?

We limited the max number of results that get returned for a search to 256.

Already asked and answered in the migration thread.

There's one problem: I can no longer search for common terms to find new questions I might be able to answer. E.g., I used to search for "key*" to find new threads about keyboard issues. Now this fails to find the new threads; it seems to grab random 256 words with "key*" all over the database. Would it be possible to limit the search to the 256 newest matches?

Actually, what you are seeing is that wildcard searches have been eliminated for now in the interests of performance. If we can get performance stable, I'll look at trying to reimplement that feature.

On the search page it still says "Use * as a wildcard for partial searches", it might be a good idea to remove this text!

It's not just the missing wildcard searches. If I search for complete common words, like "xfree", I still get only very old threads. The search seems to grab the 256 oldest postings containing "xfree". To reproduce, search for "xfree" and select "Display results as: Posts". If you limit the search in some way, you get a subset of those matches.

Because the search seems to return the oldest postings consistently, it may be simple to just reverse the order and return the newest postings instead.
