    Sphinx Search is now a part of RWI!

    For those of you in the IT game you will know that there is only one real name is the search game and that is Sphinx.
    Sphinx is what the world's most search intensive websites such as The Smithsonian, Craigslist, Joomla etc all use Sphinx for their search engine and nowso does RWI.
    Not only do we expect to see an improvement in overall site load speed (search engines play a much larger role behind the scenes than most people realise) but gfive it a couple of days for Sphinx to cache and your ability to search will ung=dergo as massive improvement.

    This is just one of many site upgrades we have planned for the near to mid future so stay tuned as RWI gets better and better at providing you with the ultimate replica watch experience!

    Looking forward to this. It also explains why I cannot find stuff atm. Once it caches it should be a great resource.

    Mods are GREAT at working out things, going to bat for us, and have some tools at their disposal to sanction scammers but they can't ultimately protect us from everything, including losing $ if we are not cautious. The main takeaway is this: we RWI members are participating knowingly in the "wild west" here (which actually thrills me) so...caveat emptor and never spend more than you can afford to lose.

      Sphinx is now fully up and running, but for those of you wondering "What the heck is this ?" and "Why don't they focus on fixing the lagging issues ?" Here's an explanation :

      Sphinx is a search engine that doesn't rely so heavily on the database, in order to get some load back from the database, we opted for this search engine that is not only way more powerful and but also more efficient ressource wise.
      So this is a big step towards less server lag and with the added benefit of providing a better search engine.

      For example, you can now use only 2 characters in your search (for example "LV") and you will get relevant results for this.

      New search engine doesn't equal miracle, if you are not precise enough in your search term, you will still get irrelevant or too many results.

      This is a way of providing users a visible improvement, we see and feel improvement on our tech changes, but you as an end user, might not see them immediately, so it's nice to give you guys some real feedback on the progresses made

      Enjoy

          Wow, I’d never heard of Sphinx before (clearly not in the IT game).

          Great to hear though, I look forward to the new tech making things easier for us!

          Thanks as always to the awesome guys that run all this stuff behind the curtains, we don’t see them at it, but we do see the benefits of their hard work.

                So how does it work guys? Just need to type in the search box like the usual thing as it's scripted already in the server? Or we need to click some link or anything of some kind?

                      All behind the scenes mate, just use search as normal. Sphinx simply replaces the standard vB search engine with a much faster more efficient one.

                          Just a heads up as we seem to have an indexing issue currently with Sphinx, so if some research return very few results or none and that you suspect it should, use Google to search RWI while we sort that out

                              In the meantime, using google in that way : "your search rwi" or "your search replica watch info" or even "your search site:replica-watch.info" should yield you excellent results
