can we search for forum posts yet? O___O


I still can't stalk myself...I don't know where I last posted a post... Even though someone told me that shinji is working on that...but is he really working on it? Or will it remain like that foreverrr and everrr?

*cough cough* I guess I should ask you personally., since you know best what you are going to change/update next...>.>
Will the search tag remain that way or are you planning on changing/updating it somehow? Like adding the date of creation of a thread/poll, that would be nice...or giving me the ability back to stalk my own posts..I definitely miss that :(

oh yeah the forum post searching should be back now...on the Forum tab.. itll be back on the All tab later.. it was disabled bc it made the search engine slow, but its fast now!

about searching for less than 2 letters, hmm it was done so it doesnt break the search engine, i might be able to remove it though, thanks for asking!


Haha, yeah I noticed it yesterday, thanks a lot I feel pretty much relieved now. I honestly missed stalking my posts
Yeah, it's pretty cool now, it doesn't die on me anymore when ever I search for threads(at least so far it seems to work pretty well) ^^

:P I am going to be cheeky now, and tell you what would make the search tag/feature even more awesome than it already is.
It would be awesome if the search tag would search in a more specific way (Of course the following suggestions are just meant for the search in the public CR forum, i.e. threads/polls/posts), it would make it a lot easier for the users to avoid making duplicate threads/polls, and would make the monitoring of the forum a lot easier for the forum moderators. >.>
What do I mean by "more specific"? Well, I mean that if one could search for threads made on a certain time of the year in a specific section, for example, lets say that I want to search for threads that were made in december 2007 and that just in the general section of the forum, all I would have to do is choose the month , year and the section, where I want to search for the threads, in a menu of the search page/tag, and after clicking "search" all the threads in the general section that were made at that time would pop up in the search list. As for when it comes to user's posts in the forum, it should apply for those as well.
Okay, I know that someone might say now that this would increase the "stalking" possibility for random users to watch over certain users, but I believe if someone doesn't want others to read their posts, then they simply shouldn't post in the public forum, that easy.(Keep in mind that this suggestion of mine still applies just for the Public CR forum, and not some groups, group forums, etc)
Maybe it would as well be pretty good if one could choose the possibility of just searching polls, or threads, or both at the same time. Why do I think so? Meh, I just noticed that people still post polls in different sections, and completely ignore that they should post it in the poll section, so to keep track of polls in the wrong section, this feature would be pretty cool, too. ^^

Maybe you guys now might still worry about the "stalker" issue that this specific search feature could bring up, but tbh, I highly doubt that a stalker can do a LOT with some random forum posts, the best way to stalk a user is through their profile and their friends, i.e. checking on their GB wall, group list, favorites, photo gallery, etc; the GB wall is actually the place where people tend to forget that others, even random not friended users, have access to it, and some do quite share a lot on their GB, because it is quicker and easier than writing PMs. Imo, a real stalker would stalk his prey through their profile and the friend's profiles and not through some random forum post.
So I am not sure if someone already suggested this, but if you guys really care about the "stalker" issue, then I think that you should definitely make it possible for the users to set their profile just visible(hidden GB wall, hidden buddy list, etc) to a certain extent for the "strangers", for example this is possible with the "secret", "closed" groups, so why not as well for the normal profile? This would mean that only friended users have a complete overview of their buddy's profile. Of course this should be set by default, i.e. people can decide on their own if they want or don't want random users to be able to see what they have on their profile. Of course the profiles should be still accessible for the forum/media mods..>.>

Anyways, thanks a lot for reading this long post u.u

PS: I am sorry if I made my post sound too complicated, but my english sucks..>.<
-_- And sorry for having quoted you twice today, but I always had to delete the post because somehow my post wouldn't post completely...(slow internet connection) -_-

- moved the old monthly Badges to the new Items section (merged the two, since they are kinda the same thing)

Now my old monthly badges and Blassreiter badges are all mixed up. They look unorganized.
Just to let you know... I don't like it. Sorry.

My suggestion... Why not allow us to organize and arrange our badges? For example: Allow us to drag and drop so that we can rearrange the position of the badges. Something similar to organizing photos in Friendster. How about it, Shinji?
