    No, it happened after the "forum down for maintenance" event earlier this week.

    umm .... OK,but to be honest with you, I have had very poor luck with advanced search features for some time now, and that was not always the case. I am not complaining or anything, because, what the heck, the forum is free to its users. But for whatever reason, I have not been able to use it for some time now.

    If I'm logged out I've had no problem with it but haven't tried it since the forum maintenance thing. I've actually had better results logged out than in.


    EDIT: Nevermind. No go.

    I'm getting the V on Firefox (25.1).

    I've been using the Google search option for ages and it always gets me where I want to go with no problems. No need for the forum search.

    The forum Advanced Search works to some degree, but you have to sift through to get what you're looking for.

    One problem is the haphazard titling of threads. Another problem is that street address numbers didn't seem to register in a search.

    Maybe for you, but the V's still showing it's ugly face for me (even after dumping my cache).

    yep, same V from hell here too

    it's such a simple fix too, all you have to do is make sure favicon.ico is always in the root folder on the web server

    and before you dismiss it as a minor issue/complaint, realize that some people (like me) have over 50 icons on their bookmarks bar, and when the familiar logo is not there my click rate goes down by several orders of magnitude (I literally forget about the site on some days). It's causing you real losses in traffic / page views

    Thankfully the search feature is back. The spy V still skulks.

    I have the checkerboard on Chrome, on a PC at work. On Chrome, on a Mac at home, I have the V.

    The checkerboard is finally back (Firefox)!
