Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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 '15 at 22:19
