    Exclamation We need a better way to tag things and a "search this thread" option

    the search-system is killing me. some things cannot be found for either beeing to shortnamed, to common or simply just impossible, e.g. try to find the movie m.

    so what we need is a tag option for each post. this would be very useful for threads like the vob trailers. as tags we should use the imdb id. since we post the id anyway, why not use to find things faster and a hell lot easier.

    the second thing that needs to be implemented is "searcht his thread". i've seen this on various other forums and it also helps finding things better.

    cheers,
    bendermac

    Actually, since the Forum was upgraded you can easily search the thread with the IMDB Number using the Advanced Search (One extra click). Adding tags is only as good as the information included in the tag anyway.
    Prior to the upgrade "URL strings" were ignored in the search, but now it does by default typing in the IMDB number with the "tt" in keyword, search entire Post.

    That's why I make it mandatory to include the IMDB number in any thread starter, or in case of the VOB and similar threads, for each post.

    I can't see through walls, but I can kick your ass.

    Also, you already can "search this thread".
    Click on "Search Thread" at the top of the thread... unless I'm missing something??

    Actually that's the one I was referring to, example:
    Open the VOB thread
    Click "Search Thread" at the thread top, which gives you the drop down.
    Under "Search Button" from the drop down is "Advanced Search", click that one
    Advanced menu shows up, paste or enter the IMDB number in "Keyword's" field, hit enter or search, that's it.
    It only failed me a couple of times, but that could simply have been a quirk.
