Spotting broken/missing files

At Ninja Commando + we discussed this:

Well I have run into too many files that I had on my disk only to find later that when i checked csdb the fucking file was missing and/or it was broken which isn't obvious at first sight. So either make another way of marking a broken file so i can search for them in the database OR leave it in the filename. Unless it's against some rules here.

I'd have to agree a bit with this.
So perhaps we can make some 'rule' about how to take care of these things.
Like adding '[BROKEN FILE]' after the title?
Or perhaps a radio-button or something to indicate this fact?

Awesome solution Perff!
Also changed these so that they are now correct.

Kokotoni Wilf

I like the way it shows up during a search now too!

Quadrant Bust 2
Spitfire +
Varidan
Shackled +2F

I usually say it's "borked" when a file is broken... ;-)
Go hunt for that.

Other good search ideas might be "error", "doesn't work" & "fucked up". :)

Good way to get me working: Send me a lot of requests that only I can do, because there is no user feature that can do it. :)

Well, now there is!
In a simple version so far, so there is no official link to it except this one:

Great!
Does it search all fields (Summaries, User Comments, Production Notes, Goofs, Hidden Parts & Trivia)?

Yes. Actually they are not fields, but different types of comments, so yes.
You can now also search on author, so you can get all comments from a given user. Another old request.
Working on so that you can search on comments from groups and events as well. Should be working shortly.

Edit: Should work now. I also added "Comments" to the drop-down in the normal search-box in the top right corner, so there is a official way in to this new search-feature.
