SupersSearch indexing is definitely down as of 1.1 days ago. I get search results back for anything over that age, but nothing comes back for anything in the last day.

This service is really at an all time low. Perhaps it is time to switch. Anyone have a suggestion for a similar tool (indexing service and searching tool)?

The semi functional and limited Deobfuscated supersearch function via the "latest" button for TV searches was the only reason I have held on. I get great movie searches via NZBFINDER. I am with you in my search efforts to find a general replacement. I have been here since 2005 and I guess I just held onto what was familiar.

I send them a mail yesterday and one a few hours ago.
Got a mail back from NL SuperSearch.
"Yes we had some issues with the index. It's rebuilding and should be back in 1-2 hours from now. We still working on the system and products."

Down once again. No SS for multiple hours. I don't think they monitor their service offering on weekends

I'm starting to worry they are struggling as a business.
This stuff lately with unreliability seems like a bad sign.

Yes I agree. They have a decent product offering but seem to struggle with updates and stability. The last news posting in the app was from Oct 2020. I would think if you wanted to instill confidence in the product they would have regular updates (the good and the bad). I was with Newsgrabber and switched to newsleecher a very long time ago. I have stayed with the product because I know the good and the bad and how to navigate it well. Maybe time to bite the bullet and see what else is out there.

They need to reboot the Pentium server under the desk.

Sent to Support today -

So, another couple of weeks have passed since the status page finally acknowledged the feed and de-obfuscation issues that have lasted at least 6 weeks of longer so far. But once again, a vague "We're working on it", without any targeted fix" date just doesn't cut the mustard. At this point, Newsleecher is practically useless to me and many others. Unless I obtain an NZB from another source (which I may have to pay to subscribe to), I can't locate any files with Newsleecher Supersearch. First your product was crippled by not being able to handle the new obfuscation method that is now in wide-spread use, and lately, even having an obfuscated file-name doesn't return any search results in Supersearch. So come on, let's see a target "Fix" date or it will be time for you users to set "Good-bye" target dates. We are not getting what we are paying for.

Given all of the evidence that we as a community have seen, I don't think there's much doubt that NL and SuperSearch are not being maintained. Many of us have already moved on, as a result. Too bad. NL was once THE newsgroup app to have. Now, it is THE newsgroup app to avoid.

Must be having issues. The super search engine is being restarted for the past 8 hours. That is a long startup time for a service.

SS is returning ZERO results, not just deobfuscated, 14.5 hours as of right now.
