I wanted to know if someone had started a new Enterprise thread. So, I thought a quick search from yesterday would be less of a workout on the hamsters than having to open one or two Cafe Society pages. However the search failed. I am puzzled because I’m subscribed to one that should have popped up in the search. Searching entire posts (yes, I confess I’ve done a couple) seems like overkill when I know what I’m looking for must be in the title.
I searched using the following criteria (without the quotes):
Search By Keyword: “Enterprise” and later “Enterprise*”
Search By User Name: “”
Search Forum…: “Search titles only”
Search For Posts From…: “yesterday”
Sort Results By… “in descending order”
Result: vBulletin Message box with “Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.”
It should at least have found “Enterprise: Exile spoilers”.
I concerned because if my input was good and the search failed to work correctly, maybe faulty searches are putting an unnecessary strain on the hamsters.
- Did I search correctly?
- Is searching less of a strain than opening a few windows simultaneously?
