This is taken from another topic.
Niko did nothing wrong just posted a related thread - wicked fast.
Ouch that was fast. We need a ask Niko if there is a thread about a subject search. He seems to find all the ones that we can't ;)
Yeah what is up with that?
Four Observations I have made:
1. As of late there are many who are creating new topics without searching (I can relate when I first got into forums years ago)
2. Many topics repeated regularly that a search should have brought up.
3. There are random posts on threads over 6 months old where the poster must not have see the time of the last post. (almost alway newer member i'm guessing redirect from an outside search.)
4. When I try searching for various items or discussions we had just a few months ago where I know various terms that should bring the topic up, I can never get any relevant results from the searches or I have to go though pages of results to find it.
(Before all the "hey idiot you don't know how to search" comments - I write SQL scripts to pull data out of 100's of data bases to create reports for fortune 1000 companies as my day job. I can find anything in almost any system and something is off here.)
So that round robin is covered - What is missing out of all of the threads so that Items are easier found for everyone? Tags, <bla bla>s, or something else? How about archiving the threads over 12 months old?
Admins - Niko: Any advise?
Please leave advise to admins as they are the experts but sound off it you are having the same issues or if you have seen other things. (Please make everything constructive.)
