    In the past it has pissed me off and it's pissin me off right now. I've been looking for a thread that Zed started awhile back. It was titled something like, "What would you do with this power?" but the search function isn't helping at all. I've searched the Lounge all the way back to the middle of May with no luck either.

    I tried this for Zedaxax, 15%, and 99%. I went through them all twice! I'm sure I'm overlooking the post at some point, but if the search function worked this wouldn't be an issue.

    The search fuction works perfectly if you know how to use it:

    Just go to Advanced Search.

    Type the name of the person you are looking for in Search for username.

    Change the drop-down menu below it to Find threads started by user.

    Untick the Exact name box next to it.

    Refine the search by selecting a section below in the Search in Forum(s) box.

    You can further refine your search by putting in a keyword in the left hand box and selecting Search titles only.


    The above will find all the threads started by the member in that section. That's the way I use it and I've never had any trouble. The thread has to have existed in the first place, be by the person in question and/or not deleted for the search function to work but I think it does a good job nevertheless.

    I can't find a thread like that by 15% or Zed. Are you sure you aren't referring to Hobbes' "What power do you want?" thread?

    I know how to use the advanced search.

    That's why the search function sux. I saw it by accident about an hour before trying to find it, so I know it exists.

    The search function works fine. I doubt this thread even exists, it's your memory that is playing tricks on you. You're not even that sure of the title.

    Hell, you're probably just making it all up to get attention.

    I got no problems here.

    Sometimes its a little tricksy to come up with the words to use in searches but,
    like google, experiment helps.
