Odd search problem, or maybe it's just me

I have been doing some poking around here on the forum, planning for my trip next summer. I've been using the search box to look up about Tupper Lake, Low's Lake, and such. I do single word searches for 'tupper' so I don't get every post with the word 'lake'. I thought it was odd a couple of weeks ago that when I would search for those names I would get about 1 page of results spread over the past 12 years, and then I would get a raft of results from 2007 and before. It occurred to me today that I should do a test, so I searched for 'santanoni' (without the quotes, of course) and the same thing happened. I know I posted a trip report in 2017, and it didn't appear in the search results. I am wondering if this is a problem just for me and my computer or if other people have experienced the same thing. I value this forum very highly, and I really appreciate the folks who administer, moderate, and maintain it. Thank you very much.

I know we've had some issues with database crashes and re-indexing everything...I'll ask @Kyler to check this.

Zach, if you do the santanoni seach today, are you seeing the limited results, or are you seeing current results, including your trip report?

WinterWarlock, thank you very much.

Kyler, I am still seeing the same thing, and I get the same results in both Chrome and Safari, if that matters. My operating system is 4 years old, so it could just be that I'm out of date. I tried to take a screen grab of my search result and will try to attach a JPEG of it to this message. Thank you very much for your help.

I find the forum search tool to be rather limited. I use this sort of search string instead on Google:
Piseco site:adkforum.com
or
NPT AND user name AND book site:adkforum.com

Works really well.

Thank you very much Neil, I'll have to try that method. The Search box here on the forum has always worked well for me before, with the limitation of only using unique words, so I thought maybe something had happened, but I don't know much about the online world.
