Search options

It would be nice to have some advanced search options. And even better is to have have search capable of looking withing the forum/area of the forums you are currently in. IE if I'm in Star Trek Online it automatically searches inside there. Or if I'm in some other game it only searches that game's forum. Be nicer if there was a particular thread I was searching for inside an area, like in the area for game updates that it would be capable of limiting the search to that area.

What we got now is when you search for something like "lag" it finds things from EVERY game. Well, I don't play every game around, nor have time for it.

A little more advanced method to searches so that it allows for a better searching experience instead of bringing up anything it can find.

    Fully agree, need a way to just do searches for said game forums, not every single post in every section. Makes trying to find a past post 100 times more difficult.

    Yes. The only time it CAN become beneficial is if said games are on the same server or at the exact same location and you are looking for lag/game performance issues to see if it is you or the location of said game.

    Agreed, the inadequate search is probably one of the biggest functionality losses we had, coming from vBulletin. Not to mention that also destroyed the dev tracker...

    Yes. It was nice to have the dev tracker which enabled a spot here to see where the latest comments were from Cryptic employees and "stalk" them to keep up to date on things.

    I THINK they may have just added this...I was coming to post about it myself. That'll be going in the New Forum Survival Tips soon. Working on screenshots.

    Also, note that Advanced Search WILL NOT GO EARLIER THAN 1 YEAR. There is a date field that as of this time, cannot be completely deselected.

    EDIT: Belay that...right now, it appears nonfunctional, and may have even broken ALL search functions, because I have tried searching for thread titles that I KNOW exist, and I can't get them to come up.
