Basic forum searching is now open to everyone, so if you are coming here with a technical problem, please try searching this forum before starting a new thread. This is getting ridiculous!

Edit: Forum search is the box above the thread index that says "Search this forum..."

I dislike that I can't rate you up. I also move the mouse over to and then go 'oh yeah'.

That would save me a lot of copy pasting for problems I already know are solved.

It takes time for people to get used to having a search feature finally, because it hasn't been there for so long.

They should have stickied the first post you made when it was opened up.
I didnt know for a few days I could search as it got punted off the first page.

But a lot of the questions are from people who have only jsut joined with 1 or 2 posts, so they would not know about the search facility only being recently unlocked.

I'll rate her up for you!


Also I'd like to point out the thread that says READ ME FIRST -- it actually has some good stuff in it that might help out a lot with many users' problems and/or questions. Not to mention checking the Wiki articles for guides.

People should scroll through the first page at least before posting. I've seen so many threads lately that literally are the exact same as threads 10 posts under them on the first page.

You can lurk without posting or **** even registering.

I think you should sticky the thread, at least temporarily. It was 1/3 of the way down when I first saw it. Maybe even capitalize the subject too. XD

edit: I know the search box is there, but looking at it, your eyes sort of slide right over it. Maybe somebody should make it bigger or brighter to stand out more.

But the drama queens and kings assume that they're the only ones having problems/realizing problems, so they must be the first ones posting such problems.

I read this, and the first thing that I thought of was a large, randomly flashing, neon sign that says "FORUM SEARCH"


That would be cool.


Or... maybe they could add the Smiley: motz to each side to draw some more emphasis to it. That could be fun too.

Ah, I was clicking on the "Forum Search" in the Forums tab and it kept telling me only premium members could use it. Totally didn't see that box there, thanks.
