    Like the title says.....would you like to continue to get features like The Lounge, or are you frustrated (like me) with the recent limiting of our search ability. If it is newer that 9 months, then we can search it...if it isn't (like a lot of the best info) we can't access it.

    While I like the new features, I think that I would rather have deeper search ability in order to solve problems/help others solve theirs.

    By problems, I mean Blazer problems....not other non-Blazer probs. like finding someone a job or reading about fart jokes. If I wanted non-Blazer info., I would go to another site or watch Oprah. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I am noting the beginning of an increase in the VOLUME of information on this site at the expense of the QUALITY of info.

    Am I the only one who sees the search limits as a symptom of an increasing problem?

    Let me hear it!!! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I hear what your saying. I really don't serch much anymore so don't have much personal opinion on that.
    The Lounge crowd is getting bigger and alot of online friendships/bashing are growing too. Like most folks that get board they start making stuff up to talk about to kill time or find amusment...
    I am just glad I got to know my rig very well before this place got as big as it is. It was alot eaisier back in the day to get build up info with out all the bashing. It still is not too bad here comparied to places like Pirate.

    I was trying to access some information too, "no matches found" is all I got for some viable information that was on here before, like trying to find some of my own older posts. I would like to use the search feature, but now it is full of crap like "Are you naked polls", so I just end up making another post.

    If all we did was search, this wouldn't be an active forum, it would be a reference. If you have a question, simply ask it. Just ignore the a-holes who reply,"repost"or "use the search function". /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yes, it is harder to find information. I still come here for all my chevy specific questions, and to read stuff for/by friends, but I do most of my 4x4 research at Pirate4x4 and 4x4wire. Sorry Steve, but it's an evolving place that really doesn't interest me a whole lot anymore. Mainly I just surf Midwest forum, Plains forum, For Sale, and Center of Gravity... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    You can't prune it down to pure tech or it will become cold and heartless, and even if, someone will make a joke in a thread, adn that will go on, and get bigger, and it'll revert.

    You can choose not to go to certain forums of the site

    You can also choose to actually use era specific forums for real tech instead of throwing it in the garage with the tire size questions

    It's set up to be all things to all people, the people just have to make it so

    I miss the 'old' CK5. The speed problems are not worth the few additional features that came with the last upgrade. Oh well /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
