    Whenever I tried to search, I get an error page that says "The search could not be completed. Please try again later." Has search been disabled for some reason or something?

    You should try searching to see if anyone else has had this problem...

    Also had this problem.
    It's probably the site being buggy.
    I'd say shoot a PM to tj_cool and explain it ;]

    Maybe they disabled search while they're rearranging the forum/database to form the new PS4/Xbone boards.

    It's a problem with the search index (due to the database server problems).
    It'll need to be rebuilt, which may take a while with millions of posts.

    Also, PMing me is redundant as I check here multiple times a day.
