One service SearchYC provided that remains a need unfulfilled even with the new feature is search for Arc Forum, pg’s other news.arc forum. This had been an extremely valuable resource to the Arc language community as SearchYC had been to the Hacker News community. It kept the old gem posts and comments which tend to get buried in the forum accessible to new readers.
How can we address the problem of lost search to Arc Forum and the other Hacker News sister forums in the wake of SearchYC’s shutdown? You can share your thoughts below or in the corresponding HN thread.
Update: The ThriftDB guys are interested in taking on search for Arc Forum! I’ll make another announcement if anything materializes.
Update: SearchYC is now officially done.
