Tepples -- don't feel bad. I read the description of the option the exact same way you did. :-)

I finally figured out how to get the indexing to continue. Everything through 2009 is indexed, and I see 2542 matches for sprite. That's more than even a Neo Geo can push.

EDIT: Reindexing using words that appear in fewer than 25% of posts is complete.

Thanks, tepples. I'm sure the search feature will be much more useful now.

Maybe a new post to announce that search is more useful, in case people had encountered its limitations before and subconsciously decided to not bother searching as much as they could? Could give a few useful searches as examples of finding things already discussed.

PM me some ideas and I might use them in such an announcement.

IMO (and this is just me), it should probably be added to the bullet list of things fixed/improved below, which is already an announcement thing:
