Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I can't perform a search on chat for something I said. It just takes forever, and after forever has passed, the 500 lolcat pops up.

Here's an example: http://chat.stackoverflow.com/search?q=chat+search+sucks&user=46642&room=10.

If I search without limiting it to my posts, like http://chat.stackoverflow.com/search?q=chat+search+sucks&room=10, it works fine.

I see lolcats too on the first link, but weirdly chat.stackoverflow.com/… works fine withou the room, so it seems the combination of room + user is the problem – Flexo Jun 7 '12 at 16:02
I can search for times I said "bananas", or "search" just fine, but when I search for "chat search sucks" and a user, it fails. Still testing. – Mooing Duck Jun 7 '12 at 16:02
Should be at least a little bit better now. A round of index tuning is in order. – balpha Jun 7 '12 at 16:42

Chat search is backed by elastic search now so this should no longer be an issue.

I think it's broken again. I'm getting 0 results for everything. – snailboat Aug 8 at 22:19
