The search feature sucks

Recommended Posts

Try searching for "Y the last man". It won't search because all the words are less than 4 letters. What kind of retarded function is that? If you put quotes around for a Boolean search, same response: my words are too short. Is there a way around this, oh great and powerful Oz? Or am I just a simple man who can't figure out these persnikity computers and their galldarned software?

These young new members come along and think they can criticize everything we've built. They want change, and just for the sake of change. They all think they can do so much better.

Let me tell you, we've been using this inadequate search function for years now, with nary a complaint.

And you know why we're happy? Because us Elders remember a time before there even was a search function. If we wanted to find something, we'd have to put aside a full day of our time and sit at the computer browsing through page after page to find the correct information in our antiquated filing system.

You young new members don't know how good you have it!

Remember that cool army game?

An airplane would fly across the screen (well, it looked like a blob of pixels, but I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be an airplane), and, at the press of your key, would magically drop bombs (or a pixel, whichever) on boats that looked like little blobs of pixels, and then they'd "blow up" (erase from the screen). And it was all in glorious green and black!

Try talking about Hellblazer on that.

I prefer the one game where you had a blob of pixels called a 'tank', and you adjusted the angle and power on a line of pixels called a 'turret' and fired a pixel onto another blob of pixels called 'enemy tank,' all within the cozy confines of a swath of jagged pixel mountains.

Don't make angry Slinker. He has big hound.

By the way, I was trying to put 'Y' and didn't work either. Things of the webpage, it is not so important. Now with The Triunvirate, if it's not in the first four or five pages you'll find whatever in the Streatham Lockup.

Thank you, Adrian Brown. That was what I needed.

 

My hound will be calling on the rest of you-very, very soon.

Your hound resides at tepasmas.com? cool. Hope you're not paying an arm and a leg to park him there.

 

No, that was once a picture of Satan, if I recall. Then it changed to damn words...WORDS of all things!!! Not gold, or cookies, or toys...just WORDS.

Good work Mister Ade, though really you should've settled for cuffing the moany cur before sending him on his way.

 

 

Moany cur? Like a pseudonym? Alias?

I'm posting here because doing so means I will have been the last poster in every section on this board (except the lock-up section which is locked). That's like a straight flush if it doesn't get clogged with toilet paper. Yes, I'm bored, stoned, I keep forgetting what I'm doing, and masturbation seems too self-indulgent at this time in the a.m.

For some reason, searching for all posts by an forumite only yields the last 200 results at most. What gives?

Also, one seems unable to find results from before about eight months ago.

If you have a key word you can search back to the beginning of the board.

 

I've checked the 200 posts thing in the forum settings, and cannot find anything, so it may be a resource issue.

Mr McMahon will have to take this one:

 

Revamped Search UPDATED

 

IP.Board 3.1 features a completely revamped search engine, making it easier to find content within your community. It's now easier to search individual applications, and each application has custom filters available to find precisely the material you're looking for. Moderation actions can now be performed inline right within the search results, speeding up moderation duties immensely.

 

IP.Board 3 has always supported Sphinx, but we've also revamped that. Sphinx searching is now identical to the regular search, giving you all the benefits of a fast and efficient engine, without losing the search features IP.Board brings.

 

Finally, there's a brand new contextual search box in the global header. Specify which type of content to find, and search inside individual topics or forums easily.
