Why can't you search all of the boards any more? Now, the only option is:

Main Board
or
Other Boards


Put it back the way it was!

My guess... and it's pure speculation... is that the original database with all the messages in it is too huge and causing problems now. That's why threads are "disappearing" randomly (not to do with intentional deletions), and I'm guessing they're splitting it up into two (or more) databases to try and solve the problem.

...which would be why you can't search them all at once anymore.

It's too much "cyber-landfill."

But, now it's only two choices...

Wouldn't it be easier for the search function if people could pick which board?

Besides, I only check two boards, why would I want to search boards I never use?
