As many might have now noticed (or not) – the implementation of the search feature in SL has changed.
According to this article in the SL blog it is now this way:
You may have noticed that Search > Places returns slightly different results after today’s update. Previously if you had a place with a description like “clothingshirtshoes” a search on “shirt” would find that place. Now our searches work more like Google, Yahoo, ect. and will only find full words. Thus “clothing shirt” and “clothing, shirt” will be found, but not “clothingshirt”.
This, to say it simply, hurts business until the word spreads around under the users and still then some might not know how to do it otherwise.
(Yeah, some people would just right now say: LL is to blame for using the „toy database“ MySQL, why have they not used Postgres or $insertyourfavoriteenterpriseRDBMShere from the beginning? Guess what? Stick this statement in your ass, those flamewars bring nothing new…)
Ah, and of course, the inevitable Mr. Prokofy Neva has written an article about it, too, using much more words to get the same message to the people like I did. I’d like to see him as a Rebel without a clue from now on.
