I put search last 365 days and that wont work. also if I use the back button and change my search it won't let me use the search button...I feel dumb but every search I have made returns no results. the last search was for "swivel" and returned nothing and I am pretty sure there have got to be posts with that word!!! confused!!!

I won't delete anything, but I would like to do some folder nestling.... like in equipment....I would like to put all the gloves with gloves, the swivels, the leather treatments, the patterns, the multitude of hood posts, the perches....bah blah blah. If there was a way that I could help organize I would love to, and we wouldn't lose a bunch of stuff that is still useful....some threads get off topic but the info is still in there, it just takes FOREVER to find it, I am still trying. the search feature DOES NOT WORK WITH THE BACK BUTTON, but if I don't use the back button it works fine, it seems....... I would like to help him get this forum a little more organized, I am all for making us newbies look on our own, but some of us are dumber than others, and it would be better to have it all laid out in a more cohesive order, than to have to answer the same questions repeatedly, because we can't find it!!!! Plus, I see that the people that have been on here for years, know where to find the posts that answer the questions and are continually having to post links to us, because the info is not so accessible.... I hope FB does not take this as a complaint, I really would just like to help...if I could......I don't want to BE a moderator....but help them, if I can.
P.S. I don't know how great an idea it is for any old member to be able to sticky a post....I think moderators should make that decision. but that iss just me.

The problem with adding more boards, even subboards is that 1) it takes days to sort it and b) people complain that there are too many boards. People already complain about their being too many boards now, imagine if there were more subboards that were only about gloves, only about swivels, etc? There is no making everyone happy. I will try and get it more organized eventually, maybe over winter break. Depends on school.

no complaint here, because after a few weeks I figured it out mostly, and time constraints are understandable, I have a two year old that turns my laptop off if I am on here too long. I just see a lot of new people like me who can't find stuff and end up annoying you guys with dumb questions about where to find info, even though it is likely here somewhere. On the geek forum I used to be on, only the Mods could sticky posts and they kept the read before asking dumb questions up there and deleted the people that didn't follow that....I dunno...I am not trying to tell you that you are not doing a good job, because you don't want to nestle the folders or anything...i think you do a great job, and have made this an invaluable resource to the newbies...but the nature of a newbie is being clueless!! as for complaints....everyone has to find something to gritch about.... If I can help let me know. until then, I just keep on searchin' and keep the dumb questions coming in!!! thanks though FB!!!

Is anyone else having difficulty with the search? I tried to find specific words, in the raptor facilities section and when nothing came up I tried putting in weathering yard and it still said no result, now I know weathering yard is in that section, so any clues? Nevermind I re-read this thread. It really sucks it can't be used. Oh well
At the bottom of the page where you type in what you're searching for there is a box that asks you how many days old the posts should be. I think it is automatically set at 10days, so if there weren't any posts posted with your search topic within the last 10 days, you wont get results. Change the days to something like 365 or how ever old you like. Try that.
