It seems to me that the supersearch doesn't return torrents smaller than 10KB.

Example: do a search for "ultimate_girls" and it should return a few torrents. However, the torrents do appear in a.b.anime at least...

Don't start new topics about the same subject please.

Cheers Mudone.

Unless I misunderstand.....
To be fair to the OP, it looks to me that one post is about overviews missing from SSearch and the other post in the Wishlist forum is about the binary filter in the active group list.

I'm afraid you're right. It's both about .torrent files. This is what confused me!

Another example: search for "trinity_blood" and look for a torrent with [Shinsen_Subs] in the subject. Nowhere to find. I'm talking about this article:

W6UDe.473865$ub.58990@fe07.news.easynews.com

It should be returned from the search query, but it isn't...

From which group? There has been discussions about some groups not being indexed though they used to be. Perhaps your files was in one of these groups.

Confirmed.

The group is a.b.anime. It is showing as being indexed in SSearch and searches do produce some positive results.

However, the torrent files are a problem. I checked for different torrent files in this group and I am not seeing any torrent files that under 11kBytes. These smaller torrent files are not showing up in the SSearch results.

The SS server doesn't index small text files, only the larger binary files.

It looks like SS doesn't consider small .torrent files as binaries seeing that they are in fact small text files.

Looks like this is something Spiril needs to change in the server

Yup. The torrent files need to be added as known binary files in SSearch.

A suggestion: why not simply index *all* articles and let the client do the binary filtering? This way, topics like this are no longer needed in the future...

I mean, this time it's ".torrent" that needs to be added to supersearch's binary filter, but next time it may be something else.
