Lounge search engine not up to date?

It seems the Lounge search engine is not finding threads started in the last few weeks. For instance, the word "tortellini" appears in the second post (first reply) of this thread, started November 16:

http://www.fodors.com/community/fodo...16-part-ii.cfm

But a search for that word does not call up the thread:

Just topping this to point out that, as best I can tell, the Lounge search engine still has not been updated to include threads started since mid-November of last year.

Thanks for that report. Is there anyone else who has been noticing this issue?

Most anyone who has Lounge access has noticed this for months.

They pretty much don't try any more.

Lounge ? This VIP club that is going to turn into a geriatric club ?
Where the common mortals are not allowed ?
Frustrated ? Me ?

Wo: If you hadn't changed your screen name/re-registered you'd have access

Nope. My older avatars are still active or activable and don't give access to the lounge.
Something I find stupid : it is not a rule of 'stay long enough to gain access' but it is : 'ah, too bad, you're late mate !'.
Bah...

Oh -- I thought you had been around longer than that. Just seems that way . . .

Right now the Lounge search engine isn't working at all.

I'm hopeful that means it's being updated.

None of this comes from Fodors unfortunately. The search is powered by Google Custom Search and we have absolutely no control over what they index.

That's true of the general search engine (the box that says "Search the Forums"); but I wonder whether it's also true of the Lounge search:

http://www.fodors.com/search/results..._advanced.html

Since Google searches in general will not find any of the content of the Lounge, I think it may work in a different way (when it works at all).

Is it?

The Lounge is not a public forum and I thought it couldn't be searched via google.
