As a temp. measure to try and lock down (or ideally, eliminate) the cause of what's been bringing Bulba server 1 down repeatedly the past couple of weeks, I have disabled searching on the forums entirely. If this doesn't help, I'll re-enable it within the week. If it does help, then we'll hold off re-enabling search until we've moved to a new search platform. That was already on the cards for mid-December anyway, so that's not too far off.
....though, if we decide to run a scavenger hunt contest on the forums this December, having search off might make it a bit more interesting. ;)
Seriously, please be patient guys. For some odd reason, BMGf actually causes more server load at times than Bulbapedia, which is a bit rediculous. I'm pretty sure it's got to do with the search, but with both our techs currently absent (one on holidays, the other had his laptop die on him the other day), we can only put a band-aid on things for the time being.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
