Does TMP make the most effective use of its index system or could something better be developed?

For example, if I want to see ANY thread concerning the battle of Kip's Bay am I going to locate it with the current available system? (rhetorical)

I would willingly pay double for a more effective index system. What do you think?

Pay double? Twice nothing is still nothing…

You would have to put in "Kip's Bay" in the title and do either a "title' search or I do believe a "posts" search, but posts searches is a bit 'wonky'.
But that will search ALL of the boards. The search engine is NOT board specific.

Maybe you can do something fancy with an advanced google search?

Here's Google's advanced search – you don't need to create an account to use it – just plug TMP's URL into the site or domain name field:

To search the discussion boards, enter (without the quotes): ""

To search the news sections, enter (without the quotes): ""

Or just search all of TMP by using: ""

I never bother with the TMP search features myself.

What Tim said.

No need to reinvent the wheel. Bill has enough to do just maintaining the site.
