As a newish player and new participant in the forums, this doesn't make much sense to me.  If I'm looking for something, I'm not intuitively going to type in a long multi-word string like 'joysticksettings'.  I'm going to type' joystick settings', or 'joy stick settings'.  So the system you're setting up requires us to:

 

(1) Try to find something the intuitive way and fail;

(2) In frustration, post something about not being able to find what we wanted;

(3) Get told by older forum members to use some special string;

(4) Find the info (maybe) that way.

 

Too clunky and wasteful, I think.  Unless I'm missing something here....

What would be effective is a forum that allowed users of IE to be able to do a search in the first place!

Search would work if the forum software worked with IE (the most commonly used browser) as it is there is NO search for the majority of people with up to date IE browser!!

Maybe, the forum mods would LOVE a new thread to be started for every question by all us new guys as we can't use the search function?

I don't believe you, and neither should anyone else.

 

If there was in fact a way to get one of these for free, the forums would be on fire about it, not waiting for your little spam account to make this post.

 

Get.  Off.  My.  Forums.

ok bear with me on this...

joysticksettings,  howdoyoudropbombs,getgold..

usinggold,

edit>>> Just so everyone dosent think I just went nuts. The above was a test run.


reason I did it was to find an easier way for new players to find info in forums.

the search function does not always lead to the information easily.

so with the help of those who have posted info about stuff in here we can make a list of subjects that are asked about on a regular basis.And make an easy way to find it.

All you need to do is tag your post with a one word sentence  like joysticksettings or the above examples,

This way you just tell the new tester search that word/sentence..

could also make an index here or another place..

Its an idea and will need some refining.

edit #2.

just did a test.. typing "joystick settings" in search and it found the new "joysticksetting" in here


vac_mo   I like it when a plan comes together

 

will not always work on archived postings for some reason.

out of all the threads they closed, they left this useless thread. 

Please close this useless thread, or at least unstick it from the top and let it go away from the front page.

WHY YOU SHOULD GIVE WOWP A SECOND CHANCE

 

So i’ve been playing World of Warplanes a lot in the past 3 years, nowhere near as much as WoT, but still long enough to get a Tier 10 and multiple tier 7-8 planes.
