Search VS common words

As you might already know, the search engine on this forum often refuse to work because of too common words.
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words:
(any technical term)
I've disabled the common word threshold, so this message should not show up any more.
But, on the other hand you may get too many results for the search to be really useful.

Right now, the search index is currently being recreated, so searches won't work until it's done.
Edit: The search index is now complete and working.
"This can take from a few minutes to a few hours depending on your board’s size."
I can already tell it's not "a few minutes".

The search function is back!

If I had known it would take a FULL day to recreate the index, I wouldn't have done that.
Seriously, it literally took 24h ; the forum is not that big.

Hell, that's a lot of work. "All's well that ends well" as they say...

Great job. Double yakuman, double riichi, open pinfu, and many other "too common" words, are now searchable and yielding results. Excellent work. Congratulations.
