I support it as well. This is the only forum I post on that doesn't have that feature.

Definitely this.

Haha, haven't searched yet, sorry.
I have a meeting for my own forum this weekend so I'm really busy .
I post here now and then when I take a break off from all the work I'm doing.

Remove pointless filters from the swear filter! I can't link to tony****inson.com for example.

I *know* it is possible in the forum software to whitelist swears that form part of legitimate words, without uncensoring those words when used on their own.

If people want to post where they feel more comfortable posting then so be it.
It is a music forum not a chat room however. I personally would love people to contribute more to the music part of the forums.

I'd like to put forward the idea of implementing a more efficient, easy to use and more visible search function for the forum. Basically something like a text box that is always in the top of the screen. Here's an excellent example that was added recently in the top-right of the screen on another forum I post on:

boards.ie

It's far simpler, easier to use and it works far better than the search function we currently have here.

Yeah, I've seen that on other forums. It's easy to spot, not that that's gonna guarantee that people will use it though, before opening new threads, for example. But, it could be a useful addition, especially if it can find words with less than four letters.

The whole less than four letters thing is a bit of a problem. If you search for a band like Low or Air you're not going to get a result. Our current search function can be a bit of a pain sometimes but I think implementing a new search bar could make a bit of a difference.
