Search feature limited?

Hey all ~

I was just perusing the past posts of one of our more prolific members. It was fascinating to see how this person's views have evolved over time. I was just skimming through the search returns, clicking on whichever thread links caught my fancy, when I suddenly realized: all her posts weren't there!

The search stopped returning results after 20 pages (on "view as posts" rather than "view as threads"). But Tamara's posted a great deal more than 20 pages' worth, and her earliest posts weren't there because of the limitation.

Presumably it was set that way to save bandwidth? In setting it that way, you figured no one would ever notice, I suppose. But hey, I noticed. And dangit, I want to see the rest of her posts~!

If you can't or won't toggle the setting, could you suggest a workaround for me?

Thanks.

Actually, it wasn't by design. There's a default in the system to show only 500 search results. I've changed that to 1,000,000. Please report back here as to any degradation in the search times as a result.

Rich, are you sure that's enough to cover Tam?

When I'm feeling narcissistic, I list oldest posts first, or search in a particular date range.
