Sometimes it is important to know some odd phrasing in the title or a thread if you want to find a thread again.

It's not perfect, but sufficient, imo.



I was thinking that an additional search option could be added to help with that thing you are referring to.


Is there a way, currently, to use logical commands such as "and" and "or"?


If so, that could help find what people are looking for, easier.



I had a hard time finding "The official cool videos thread". How would I find it with ease, with the tools I have now?

I have my own way that is very quick...btw. I just want to see if I'm even doing this right.

Already a thread on how the search feature sucks, why don't you search next time first? Thanks.

I just put in cool videos thread in the search on the top. The result is on the first page.

If you go to advanced and specify the OTF, only search by title and display as thread, putting in "cool videos" it's the only result you get.

The last line of my post is indicative of searching for the thread and finding it rather quickly. I used to have trouble finding the thread until I started searching differently.

Yes, I can read, but you asked how others do it, so I told you.

Why would you bump a months' dead thread simply to laugh at something (that wasn't even funny)?

You don't bump threads unless you actually have something to add to the discussion.

beer I typed in Hard Candy in the movie discussion forum and no thread for it came up......Even though it is sitting there on the first page?

Am I doing something wrong cause K.Diddy doesn't want to get his ass kicked for making duplicate threads
