Default My idea to Improve CSS!

wouldnt it be great if there was a search engine jusst for this site
so if anyone wants any details about a certain vehicle,
instead of asking around just type it in!

what do you guys think?

It's not exactly the best, though. It doesn't always work that effectively.

Actually it works very well, if you use the archive option and use specific words, ie, bmw or coupe, etc.

X_____________X Iono, I was once trying to look for something but nothing turned out and I remembered that there had been a thread on the same topic before. Unless I was thinking of a thread on the old CSS that didn't get transferred over...

As ascariss mentioned, when you run a search you CANNOT limit it to active threads only. you have to run it in archived threads as well. When a thread doesn't get posted to for 3 months the system automatically archives it. If you are searching for something, search both active and archived threads. The search engine works very well.

Why do you think we insist that all auto threads be named only by mentioning the model year / manufacturer / model name?

The idea is to make stuff easy to find.

I have a new idea... dividing threads into threads... as i was lookign over the lounge section, i thought of how overwhelming it was. so my idea: ex: the car spy shots section: divide it into more folders: saturn, chevrolet, toyota, or even like: gm, toyota motor co, nissan motor co.

just to make everything more organized.

We've considered doping that, but after examioning the experience of other forums who have done this, we find that members tend to stick to a few brands they are interested in and ignore others. by leaving it the way it is we avoid having threads and brands ignored, by giving them all equal exposure. if you want to search for a brand, the search emngine will seggregate it for you. that is why we insist that all brand names be written fully (iow's, no abbreviations such as merc, chevy or lambo).
