# 1 search has too many results
01-10-2011, 10:18 AM
When i just logged onto tribble in the review section where the missions are, right in the middle of the list it came up with 'your search has too many results'

I have no idea if that is working as intended or not or if the limit needs to be upped. Ideally I would imagine everybody's mission should be showing, and even with filters for mission star grades as more and more people add missions that might all get filled up, cutting off some peoples missions from view even using a filter.

Either way the text is not in the best place in my opinion.

I've encountered tihis too - and if it happens on Tribble (which has a SMALL subset of users, when teh Foundry hits Holodeck, I can only imagine how large the lists will get; and it's going to be bad for missions waiting in the 'In Review' section becasue, as you know, not everyone reads the Forums and other sites, so 'promoting' any 'in review' mission would have limited eggects and it would suck for a newly made mission to NEVER have the chance of a Review because it never showed up on the 'In Review' browse list.

I really think that's an element of teh Foundry review system that's being neglected. The 'User Authored Content' search UI is very full featured, but the 'Review Content' search UI is VERY 'bare bones' - and given a new mission will need to get multiple reviews before it's promoted to 'User Authored Content'; it's search UIU should be equally full featured with categories that are in line with teh 'review' function. Hell, I wish we could come up with a Cryptic sponsored was to promoye missions in game, without being either overly intrusive or spammy.

Duplicate listings of identical missions need to be dealt with as well...

given how the search function for bug tickets Still does not even work at all.

it doesn't work, its not turning up false results, it isn't that we are too stupid to use it effectively, it has been tested to remove infinitive doubt to the contrary, it just does not work dammit !!!!! and has been that way since closed beta that's right I have even asked someone that has been in since before the game was even accessible to the public.

It doesn't in the least surprise me that the same will apply to any search type feature in the game.

I would guess that a "search" function needs a database that actually functions and is accessible to players and that possibly this has been determined to be a hazard for the server being subject to Player mayhem.

Just a guess...

We know about the too many results overlay issue. Thanks for reporting it.
