Index sensitivity

Post by The Undying » Fri Mar 03, 2017 11:43 pm

@Bogie,

Any chance you can adjust the sensitivity on the the indexer so that it either doesn't count words as being "too common" or the threshold for index discard due to commonality is very, very high (to the point where it almost trigger)? Most of the useful terms in Earthdawn are now unsearchable. The site doesn't get that much traffic, so I imagine that the index size and processing for adjusting the index wouldn't eat THAT much.

The problem is getting worse. Can't search for "knowledge" now. With people posting full characters on a sub-forum now, with separate posts itemizing their LP expenditures, we're heading steadily towards a significant usability problem where people won't be able to search for meaningful terms.

Just renewing visibility. I know you only have so much time and the indexing is only so flexible.
