For some reason, your email address was being filtered via my spam killer program. Sorry about that :D

The reason you are experiencing the error messages is that the forum is huge and the server has problems dealing with searches that are too broad. You may want to make sure your key words are very specific ("online casino" will cause an error -- it's too general), and search one topic section at a time.

In the upcoming weeks, we are moving to a dedicated server which will provide the "umph" that the forum needs in order to perform better.

Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the heads up, my first search that was messed up was looking for posts by an author. Cant wait to see what the new look is. Hopefully it will go smoothly for you. I just ended up thinking it was down so i emailed.

Actually, I searched for real beer in my fridge. No problem. But it works here as well :beer:

Casinomeister has been on line for over five years, and there is a crapload of information here. There is much more to Casinomeister than just the forum, but many visitors don't realize this since they don't bother navigating the site.

So I have decided to redesign the site to make this much more obvious and easier to navigate. The forum will be affected as well. Coincedently I'm moving Casinomeister from a shared server to a dedicated one thus increasing bandwidth, file space, etc.

Grooviness will have another definition when this is completed. :D
