Search availability not going beyond 1500 days

Post by slobster »

Getting concerned that I can't search and then report any retentions past 1490 days, only within the interface.
Is it just me?
One of the main reasons for choosing this service was search retention

The file is on the server but has to be sought from an alternative source as an nzb
World Leading Retention
We keep Usenet posts online for a very very long time. Retention in the binary Usenet groups is almost 4,275 days, and retention in the text groups it is almost 4,625 days. Plus it is rising every day. All postings can be accessed, either by fetching group headers directly through your Usenet client or by using the NewsLeecher SuperSearch service.

Newsbin is already over 3,500 days (in fact most searches produce 4,000+ days). NL used to have amazing retention for searching, but after a server crash a few years ago, they never seemed to have recovered. They did say recently that this would change...hopefully in 2020, but the longer they take the less users they will have.
