Why are some idents not showing posts?

by Diane Harrison / November 30, 2004 7:56 PM PST

In looking up some of the posters' identities here, using one of their posts, I find in numerous cases lately, that there will be a number of posts shown that the person has made (say 3 or 7 for example), and obviously the one that I just read to click on to begin with. Yet these posts are not showing up in the identity section (Who is ___). Anyone got a clue why this is? It's usually people with a lower amount of posts.

doesnt "see" the (NT) posts. I wonder if they arent counted, either? I guess a little experiment would answer that.

Besides any current problems with search, as I recall, search is actually performed on a mirror server, not the current, that is only updated maybe 1 a day or every 2 days, etc.

If I recall correctly, when they first implemented search under this software, things slowed to a crawl. So they mirrored the forums to a separate server for search purposes only.

I think that's right. You could probably search Devil in test forum and find something.

Thanks for the info, gentlemen! It was very perplexing, since it wasn't just NT posts. But I can see where we're lucky to have ANY search capabilities, so that's fine. Just wondered. Thanks again Happy
