In just 2 days after we moved our SearxNG instance (TROM Search) to a new dedicated server, it has been blocked by pretty much all search engines. It requires, it seems, a lot of work to have such an instance run at optimal levels and stay relevant. We do not have these resources. I, Tio, am doing pretty much most of the work behind TROM and I am completely overwhelmed. Therefore our TROM Search is forever removed and we are going to redirect to https://searx.neocities.org/ which is a meta-search, using the most relevant and well maintained Searx instances, randomly.
Let's leave this job at maintaining such a Trade Free search engine interface, to those who know best and have more time. We already have a ton of projects. Better spend this time creating new content.
On top of this we have permanently removed our TROM Translate which was another TF interface for Google Translate. We may add our own translation engine in the future.
I need to scale down the work I am doing for TROM because it is not humanly possible to run such an immense project with so many "things" that we have created.....from an operating system to a video and social platform, to books, podcasts, documentaries and a lot more.
Time to remove the projects that are not necessary!
