- Hi there. I aspire to one day be as good an uncyclopedian as my sockpuppeteer. Let's just hope nobody finds out his super-secret identity! --SpangSock! 17:59, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
Decapitation and the New Search Interface
Given my inability to paste anything to your sockpuppeteer's page (If he's a Pierson's Puppeteer could you ask him where I could find info on used General Products hulls?) without it going to /dev/null, I thought I'd see if my message could be relayed from here.
As I attempted to search the image archives to find a suitable cover for one of this artist's albums, I discovered your nifty new search engine.
It cannnot seach by namespace unless it's metadata; there's a fuzzy seach that can't search by namespace either; the help points to a page that gives instructions on how to flail about aimlessly in the upload logs to try to find images and fail miserably. Using the 'use the old search' proves every bit as useful as the new system, unlike the actual old search.
As much as I don't like NRV (or is it just that I'm still grumpy about my first article being NRVed minutes after I posted the first iteration), is it possible to slap an NRV on the new search system?
