How long does it take to get your town name onto the search results?

Posted by magnesium on 31 January 2018 in English (English)

I created a town called North Springwood but I can't find it on the search results. That's why I have to search New Commonia every time.

Location: Cargo Road, Town of Redstoneville, Kingdom of New Commonia, Commonia

It takes a day or two.

I have the same issue with the search browser. It seems that it cannot find any of the towns I created. Weard...

I think the search thing is down. I have created many streets and buildings recently yet they have nor appeared.

Search browser seems to show only cities created more than 4 months ago...

You can't search for the roads like Kaling Avenue 1, but 'included' as part of a route between two places I want to go. (though you can't make the route 'Kaling Avenue 1' as the destination) See here. Here are my search results for Kaling Avenue 1.

The street 'Kaling Avenue 1' should be in Singkangia, not Commonia.

Nominatim (the search engine) has not updated since October 9th, 2017. The user maintaining Nominatim is Martin, but he seems to have been disappeared since late September too. Which is quite tragic, since searching stuff on a large world map is a nifty and quite necessary feature...

Maybe we could get rid of Nominatim, and just have directions be based solely on geographic coordinates?

Does this also happen on the OGF Scale helper? I can't find major cities that I have created, yet I can find some of my cities that no longer exist anymore. Lol.

Here, search for 'Clanburg', and it shows a node in the middle of the bay. Search, Ville-Brande nearby on the land, and 'No Results' comes up.

Thanks, Zekiel
