I have been using DDG since 2011 (or maybe earlier), when there was no forum, just emails.

Is Blinders still relevant ?
- it sometimes draws a single blank and occasionally (rarely) a double blank. But that is OK with me.

I use DDG for technical research -- virtually eliminates the buy-me buy-me crud
And StartPage for shopping and on the extremely rare occasions when DDG is blank.

No complaints about DDG in any way. I do not want DDG to mimic google. Google has been relegated to the last item in SearchEngines.
I really detest G's geographical-bubble, when there is the entire planet out "there"

I am glad to help with next-duck ... it is on my PaleMoon toolbar as the research search-engine (along with old-duck + blind-duck)

Gotta have fun with abbreviations >:D

Just found one of my old threads https://duck.co/forum/thread/2289/new-dd... ... on the old DDG forum
- how come I had to rejoin this new forum ?

Blinders is not relevant right now, but it will get a reboot at some point in the future, and at that point we'll let the community know.

This is the first time I've heard of Blinders. Could someone tell me where I can find more information about it?

It is (was... will be...) a method of testing\reporting on DDG search results. The page has 2 parallel results columns which the user can review and select the set of results with the most relevant results.
