search seems to be broken, for example the word addon only displays my messages. In addition, the search is not available while logged out compared to Twitter and the search results are not persistent after page refresh: mastodon.social/web/search cc @Mastodon @Gargron

@baptx Search not being publicly available is a safety measure, likewise the various limitations (when you click on the search field, the pop under tells you exactly what can be searched)

@Gargron so it is not possible to search a word that was mentioned by other people without using a hashtag? This a basic feature that is very useful on Twitter. cc @Mastodon

@baptx @Mastodon Yes, exactly. It is intentional.

@Gargron @Mastodon for which safety measure is it not possible to search a word mentioned by other people? Is it also restricted on other public servers? I hope you will add this missing feature, which is present on almost all social networks. It is a big drawback to write public messages that cannot be found easily.

@Gargron @Mastodon users may have to use another service because of this limitation.
