Searching Within Crunchyroll Forums
Posted 3/27/07
In noticed that logain was wishing there was a way to search for forums within CR - this is an idea which Eros previously mentionned in the Site Feedback and Help thread, however it is obviously not being widely implemented yet.

When searching using the normal Google start page, or a google toobar;

Type in the following text replacing what is in italics;

what you want to search for site:www.crunchyroll.com

It is nowhere near perfect however it managed to find a specific forum when i put in a word in its title (though this was an unambiguous search term). And a reminder - make sure you aren't posting a thread which already exists.

That way is a good method until we have a search function ^-^.
Mauz15 is currently making an index thread for the general section. When this is posted, users can search with Ctrl + F to check that they aren't making a duplicate thread ^-^.
There will also be ones starting soon for the Anime and Music/Drama sections. This will be helpfull as searching on google for anime threads often just gives the link to the actual show! ^-^

wouldn't it be even better to type in this:
what you want to search for site:www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id

I got very good search results out of that!

Yes that's what I use and it works but not with every thread, that's why I'm doing an index.

Btw please don't make threads here.
~moving to general.

If any you want to help me alphabetize the most recent* threads in the general section.
PM me.
(* most recent would be all the threads created since last week or so.)

First question is why in Gods name would you want to read old threads. (This is a joke dont bother responding)

Second I was the first to comment on that google technique. And yes you can add more on after the .com to make the search more speicifc to parts of the site.

Third I guess you don't want my potential help mauz.

Fourth...well mauz just pmed me.

Fifth....Well I just wanted to say Fifth.
