So, I'm not sure what is buggy and what is just sort of buggy for the moment since there are not many tags yet.
In the custom search:
1. Despite the fact that people have been tagging spotlights, they don't seem to show up in a custom search for "any" or "all." I don't mind if they're excluded, but it seems weird that the only missions really getting any plays are not showing up in custom tag searches.
2, In fact, right now, only 3 identical missions show up in a custom search for tags, regardless of what tags are being searched for in the options. I'm not seeing different results at all for different tag searches.
3. "Exclude" tags doesn't seem to work at all. Regardless of whether or not I exclude a different combination of tags or even all of them, the Foundry shows the same list of missions. Many of the missions shown have been tagged several times today.
4. A Custom tag search only shows 50 results, at least in the exclude category. The list is almost identical to the top rated.
There's something not right with the Tag searches on Holodeck. They work right on our QA test shards, so it's something with Holodeck itself. The powers that be have been made aware of the issue.
This is most likely why SO MANY bugs have slipped by Cryptic/PWE QA of late. Perhaps your server engineering teams should be working to make your Test shards more acurately mirror the actual Holodeck server farm configuration so the time spent doing QA leads to better results for Cryptic/PWE and the STO playerbase.
