I was just answering a question that multiple new people asked me, it's not like I *just* made the decision. Didn't expect this toot to blow up of all things haha. This has been my position since that feature was requested for the first time more than a year ago
@Gargron tio do you know Madtown?
@Gargron I didn't know a decision has been made against this feature so it's great you tooted
>changes position on search which is still easily abusable by admins
>refuses to budge in position on something even less abusable
@a_breakin_glass you're not making a lot of sense. Admins have always been able to search things on their own server, that's just something you do with databases
@LogicalDash AFAIK it makes sometypes of analytics easier
@a_breakin_glass I have not changed my position on search one bit. I have implemented a form of search that fits my vision. Like literally, this search just saves you scrolling through your notifications or your own profile or your favourites, nothing else.
You can really stop @'ing me about it.
@a_breakin_glass ...okay so, as an admin, how is this any easier to abuse as an admin than just running a db query is now?
@a_breakin_glass The version of search that was actually implemented is *very* constrained—it just indexes the toots you have interacted with.
I don't know what the "abusable by admins" thing is about; it's only indexing toots that are already in the database...
@Gargron it's a good position tho.
@Gargron ios app? :(
