The search engine needs to return

I've been using the site for years and one of the old features I miss the most was the search engine. It helped me find a source to provide to friends on Discord, but with it gone it makes it difficult to find anything. I know google is an option but sometimes it has a weird thing where it doesn't display an article even if I correctly type out the title. Plus sometimes I like to put in keywords to keep up to date on my favorite games and etc.

The most I can remember is some article a mod claimed the search engine was busy being worked on as they were changing site hosts, but that was a month ago and every time I check on this site I keep assuming the search engine will just randomly return once I come on it. Rambling aside, I just want to know if the new search engine is still being worked on or was it abandoned?

The search tool was temporarily disabled while the site was moving hosts. I'm not sure why it hasn't been re-activated yet but I will check in again with the tech team about it. It won't be a new tool, just the same one we had before.
