    Default Cannot search for Backroom topics?

    I was looking for a particular topic. I tried the advanced search function as well as Find all topics created by this user, but the backroom evades the spotlight entirely.

    If I remember correctly, the Backroom (and maybe the Frontroom as well) are not searchable. The performance hit is too costly.

    ^^what drone said ^^

    They're so large, searching them puts a strain on the servers. Is there something in/from the backroom I can help you find?
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.

    I was looking for Fragony's fairly recent topic on

    If you got a search function to spare, I'll gladly accept some help.

    Thanks alot Tosa Inu, found what I searched for


    Would it though, not be feasible to allow one to search, at least one year/ six months back in time?

    I just thought about these sites which incorporate a google search on their own site, would that maybe solve the problem, to just let google search them for us?
    Not sure what strain google would put on the server then or whether the results would be useful but just an idea.

    Hello Husar,

    The Backroom is currently also closed to google, as it's an opt in forum.
