DA Can't Search Stamp by Xtermination DA Can't Search Stamp by Xtermination
As much as I love DeviantART.....really? I can't search what?...or any other word in the English dictionary...and then suddenly I can when its too late to search for something? :T

Also had trouble with the transparency but I'd like to see you try making a stamp on flash in 5 minutes with 100 frames using tweens to move an object and fit it inside of a stamp border. It'll be impossible...

You can't. It's a problem DeviantART has to solve.

Sometimes I wonder if the DA Search Limit has gone to "zero".

It cause the searcher dont undestand the apostrophe and neither of the punctuation marks. Irritating eh?

For some reason, this happens with any phrase with the letter 't' in it.

This is one of the most common scenarios I face on DA. other than the font getting smaller in my message box.

Hate to say it, but deviantArt has one of the most broken search engines I've ever encountered. It seems like only certain words or phrases work, anything else you type in, regardless of how many deviations are actually related to the thing you typed in, nothing will ever come up unless you fuck around with the url.

Can't even search "can't search anything". That's sad. And I hate when this happens sooooo much! I'll spend like ten minutes refreshing the page and it STILL says an error occurred. Grr.

There are days when I swear one of the admins are just really proud of their error message and use the search box as a link to their error message deviation. *le sigh*

And I thought I was the only one who was frustrated with that problem. Sometimes I'd get the error, then all I'd do is change a letter to capital or lowercase and it would be back to normal...and then an hour later I'd do the search with said changes just for shits 'n giggles and get the error again. :iconfrageplz:

Fact:

After v.6 (or 7, I can't remember) the search bar got screwed up at a rate that increased from <5% to over 80% of all searches performed.

It's inconvenient to be sure, but technology doesn't care when we scream at it, or the people running it - if anything, it makes the problem worse, because computer people work best with minimal stress.

My advice? Find a stress ball, find various sharp implements, and violently combine the two.

I'm not breaking pencils or busting my keyboard of frustration, I'm just making a stamp that people can agree with, whether the search engine is dysfunctional or misunderstood, its still pretty annoying

Yeah, it is, but there's usually something else to do while you wait for it to remember that search engines are supposed to search.

That being said, I hope they've figured out what's causing the error.

Yes
But honestly the internet isn't perfect and there's still a lot of bugs in the system yet. And from time to time it glitches or hiccups. From what I'm guess. Is the reason sometimes images and information is lost or doesn't load completely.

You say "the internet isn't perfect" like that's some kind of excuse for this abysmal search engine. The search engine used to work perfectly, but deviantArt just HAD to add all of this flashy shit and suddenly it fails like 8 times out of 10, I honestly wouldn't care if this was a temporary malfunction that lasted one, two, maybe four weeks, but this problem has literally been persisting for MONTHS and dA hasn't done a thing about it, it's like the site is being run by Google or something.
