Searching is for Reddit scum. We Voaters manually comb through thousands of posts to find the one we want, like our forefathers.

Funny mate, maybe it was possible in the past, put with the traffic that voat seems to be getting as of late, that may be a bit difficult.

We Voaters don't know the meaning of the word difficult.

Seriously, we're all half-retarded, what does it mean?

voat is fine-tuning some features right now to make them more cost efficient -- the best alternative now is https://searchvoat.co/

@CANCEL-CAT-FACTS @derek

Cheers mates,

Makes sense that the search tool would be the first to be worked on, I'd assume that searching puts significant load on their servers.

searchvoat is working fine though, so I'll be using that.

Cheers,

Matthew

You know how after all these years reddit's search function still sucks dick?

That's because creating an algorithm that can index and query all of the bullshit we post in real time is actually extremely hard. Google's search function wasn't programmed by one guy over the course of a couple months, it was a massive project that is still being improved and optimized to this day. Voat is on the "one guy" end of the development spectrum, not the "google" end.

Search is also crazy expensive in terms of hosting costs, and that MIGHT just be one of the laws of the universe. It would take every PHD information theorist on the planet to design a less expensive search algorithm and trust me they are currently trying.

So yeah, I'm not surprised Voat has disabled it. I would honestly be shocked if they hadn't given their financial situation.

Yup, reddit's search function took either a long time or timed out very often.

I'm not a programmer by trade (engineer), but I have experience in vba and basic c, so I can appreciate that it's not easy, and very expensive. Hopefully businesses start buying ad space and voat can start to become self sustainable and even profitable.

Cheers

Omg, that's pathetic. You noobs don't even have a search box. You guys are like those negroes who live in mud huts in Africa with primitive tools from the Stone Age. Meanwhile, I'm living in Reddit where we actually have culture, class, and modern amenities like... search boxes. Lmao 😂 But at least you can say "nigger" unironically , right?

Short answer, there isn't one(worth using). I'm hesitant to recommend google but it seems to work the best when searching Voat.
Just type site:Voat.co followed by your search query.

Edit: https://searchvoat.co/

I think they temporarily disabled it to save resources. Use searchvoat.co in the meantime.
