Not there yet . . . I tried some others that failed . . . but, yes, the search function is improving . . . and, yes, I did notice an increase in the number of returns for Jefferson and Reagan.
Would I have to try searches I know should return certain posts in order for the thing to “learn” . . . IOW, using the Reagan example, which still DIDN’T return the Reagan post in the Hall of Fame (titled “Reagan was a flaming liberal . . . but then he wasn’t”), would I have to keep trying that Reagan search for it to “learn” to return the “Reagan was a flaming liberal . . . but then he wasn’t” post?
If so, how many tries would it take, or does it “learn” to index on its own without failed searches?
If it follows the vBul pattern of “learning” (if indeed learning WAS something the vBul advanced search DID do), then it would learn on its own because the vBul advanced search gave me the COMPLETE results right out of the gate . . . I didn’t have to “teach” it with trial and error failed searches.
Can you ask your expert person these questions and relay the answers to me?
P.S. I noticed you said “over time”, which would imply learning on its own WITHOUT user input of failed searches. Is this the correct understanding? If so, how much time would you estimate 'till it gives complete results? Days, weeks, months . . . what?
P.P.S. BTW, thanks very much, sincerely, for getting back to me on this. Good timing . . . 'cause I was about to start bugging you about this.
