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: https://chat.stackoverflow.com/search?q=chat+search+sucks&user=46642&room=10.

If I search without limiting it to my posts, like https://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

  • 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. Jun 7 '12 at 16:02
  • Should be at least a little bit better now. A round of index tuning is in order.

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.
