Could we get a "search all servers" function?

Post by Thornos » Mon Dec 01, 2008 10:05 pm

I didn't see this posted anywhere, with the new server transfer of resources I would love to be able to search all servers for the best of a resource or pick from more than one server to search at the same time. I am involved in helping a transfer of items from bria to starsider atm and was trying to figure out what resources to send and thought this would be a great help in the future.

Oops, I forgot to respond to this I guess.

I tried to make the Find Resources page work for all servers, but due to the way the "Rating" part of it works (It has to be calculated for all resources if the page is sorted by it, I suspect it calculates for all resources no matter what though), the page would time-out for all but the smallest categories when using the Experimental Percentages method.

How hard would it be to simply not allow the experimental percentages method to be used in conjunction when search all servers is selected? Basically just force people to search by minimum values when searching all servers.

I would take partial functionality of this feature over nothing at all any day.

Am working on it now, there are some speed issues that I'd like to get resolved before continuing though
