I find that I get that error also if I give the tool too long a string to search for.

Totally agree.

But to the original post: I've found that the search dies if there are too many results. For example, searching for mesmer cane works fine. But a search for warrior iway crashes. mesmer cane domination works, but add gold to that, and crash.

So try to think of something that could refine your search to reduce the number of hits.

Forum has been like this for a while, the way I've worked around it if it's not working is by doing all of my GWO forum searchs through google. if you add 'site:http://forums.GWonline.net' at the end of your google searchs it returns links only from these forums.

I've noticed that when I go to the advanced search, instead of the little box at the top of the forum, that it seems to work better.

Maybe this will help you?

Yup a few others suggest advanced search too. Works fine for me aswell. And of course you get a better chance of finding what you need using advance search.

RE: se4arching the forums: I've found that the error can pop up when ANY ONE INDIVIDUAL search term returns too many results, meaning that you cannot get around the error by including extra terms to narrow the search.

I've seen enough threads like this that I've included links to two of the ore helpful threads on this subject in my signature.
