search really that bad ???

Recommended Posts

So I clicked on the 'Search' link, and entered in

gnome bloat

 

system came back with nothing found.

 

"That's odd" , I thought.

 

so tried again , with just

gnome

 

This returned bunches, including "gnome 3 bloat"

 

Really :icon8: , the system can't match up 'gnome bloat' -> 'gnome 3 bloat' ?!?!

It ain't Google, pal. ;)

 

Seriously, you gotta' be pretty specific when searching with board search engines. Some are better than others. This one here is mediocre. I've learned to just do "scatter gun" searches that give loads of responses and then just sifting through the posts one by one. It ain't efficient, but you eventually find what you're looking for. :(

Yep, Google is a great choice for searching specific to the forums.

 

I did a search on Google with the following criteria:

site:forums.scotsnewsletter.com "gnome 3 bloat"

 

Results came back as follows:

 

Gnome 3 Bloat - Scot's Newsletter Forums

 

search really that bad ??? - Scot's Newsletter Forums

 

etc. and all the balance in the Gnome 3 Bloat topic.
