Call For A Better Board

Alright, I've been called out twice for redundancy on posts. Fine. I get it. But I searched Josh Imatorbhebhe and found nothing but a post from 2017. Now, I don't always scroll every post so I don't always see everything, but there's a problem w/ the board function if I get bad search results. I despise self-appointed cops. I really do, almost more than anything. But I do understand that people wanna keep the board clean and up-to-date. So, is there a better option, because I do not think that this board functions as well as it should on a tech level. If our goal is to make the forum the best it can be, then we should find the best functioning forum we can. I don't think this is it. That said, my only real objection to the content here is ****. I love the fact that we can talk about food, baseball, the smells we love, and so on. So...if we truly want to make this forum better, then let's find one that functions properly.

    If you would like to donate the funding to Cox, I imagine you should be able to talk them into it.

    All you’ll probably have to pay is employee’s salaries for performing the search since they already have all the hardware, etc..

    How is it highway robbery? The board and the main site are free. Just have to put up with some advertising.

    Well, it's a good question, but the simple answer is that they overcharge for access and deliver an inferior product. Of course, I pay a fraction of the price that you pay in the States. My Internet, phone (international) and mobile cost me around 70 dollars a month total. That's with every cinema channel, international phone calls, and Krispy Kreme Donuts to boot.

    Search function is completely worthless here.

    I’d like to see a feature added that displays in a user’s profile the total number of downvotes that person has given out during their tenure. :smirk:

    @Teddy, I don't despise you at all. I'm sorry if you thought that. I didn't mean to imply that at all. I know I said that but it wasn't meant directly at you. Man, I apologize. I know you mean the best.

    @Bankwalker - I really do think the search function here could be better. I'll take responsibility for not scrolling and seeing that the topic had already been raised, but it happens.

    What does any of this have to do with the price of local beer?

    Which is outrageous.

    We should all have cabins in Montana.

    The Member Orientation OP should have a section on searching. Also on how if you make a redundant post, it isn't the end of the world and you should not allow your self-esteem to be damaged. And if someone points out the specific posts that you failed to find, it is not an attack on you, but is a means to have a tidy board. And if someone writes these up in a suggestion for the Member Orientation OP, then he may be a tool, or he may be trying to be humorous and/or lessen the butthurt, as appicable.

    This forum definitely needs a better search function but that's about it.
    Even though I never use emojis on my mobile, I think it would be pretty cool to have our very own emoji function thingie on here like some of our rival's boards.
    My favorite thing about this forum is the black back screen. It's way better on my eyes.

    We have some emojis. >:) Black backgrounds also save power, so it's like we're saving the earth all at the same time. Have you ever seen Google's black search engine? http://blackle.com

    I don't know how you make it in that strange country without college football nearby.

    Are you willing to put up with advertising covering all the windows and plastered on your forehead? Maybe those cabins can be free.

    Well, if we give a Mod one power to do something, I would choose the power of merging threads.....
