Seriously. Can we steal a decent one from somewhere or something? Google just doesn't cut it.

I ran a search looking for "punisher" in order to find this thread (The W) and google gave me back 7 results... none of which were that thread. Luckily I knew it had to be in either the Movies & TV section, or the Random Forum, so I didn't have to flip through that many pages... but geez, it's just ridiculous how hard it can be to find old threads.

Any chance you Zims could build/borrow a search engine for Christmas? Pretty please?

Google will eventually sort it all out.

For now, if you want to search for a term on the site, bring up Google and try it like this:

punisher site:the-w.com

You'll get These results

I'm not bringing back the old search. Sorry.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Okay then, new request:

When we look through a user's posts or threads, that we have the ability to only view posts made in a certain forum. And maybe only posts after a certain date?

This way if you remember at least one person who posted in the thread, you can narrow your search quite easily by simply going back through their old posts and sorting by the proper forum and/or date.

It'd be a great help for when Google fails me.

The current "view posts by user" link on every profile page already takes you to a view with most recent posts first, although there's no way to limit it to a particular forum at the moment.

Also, you might want to switch to another engine when Google fails you. An MSN Search: Beta query using "Punisher site:the-w.com" (beta.search.msn.com) gave you your thread as the #1 result.

Every time I tried to read this thread, it opened in such a way that I had to scroll way across to the right to read it, like 3 screens worth.
