I'm sorry to complain...

    since I love this site, but I really detest the search function. It is remarkably unhelpful.

    I guess while I'm complaining I might as well mention that I'd rather the site not have the delete-thread function. I've used it once and I regret it. I also think it adversely affects the people who've posted to the thread while it was still up.

    I guess this post has no particular point other than to see if other guys agree. =0

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI think the search function is not very useful either. It could use some serious improving.


    Sometimes I feel like deleting topics that I start. People can get so off topic that it becomes this ever-morphing mess of hoopla. But I refrain. I say, "Let those bithuz express themselves!" icon_razz.gif

    Just use google to search the forums..

    [enter search word/phrase] site:http://www.realjock.com/gayforums

    So let's say you're looking for past threads on creatine, go to google.com and enter this in the search box..

    creatine site:http://www.realjock.com/gayforums

    This works for other sites as well.

    *bump*

    I was expecting more general hostility to thread deletion!

    (...and perhaps even the completely unclear process by which some threads appear on the homepage and some don't icon_confused.gif)

    Agree on both points.

    Thread deletion is STUPID. I do not understand why it is retained. There is no possible justification for it (delete your own posts, fine. DonĀ“t delete mine)

    We delete topics that no one replies to. Seems we have a talent for boring. icon_lol.gif

    Maybe the threads that had no replies contained so much wisdom that there was nothing else to say (thus no replies). In any case, they will age too far down the list for anyone to see them without doing a specific search.

    Erik....not true.




    I'm waiting to see if he realizes that I'm going to keep saying this after each time he replies to make it true. LOL Just teasing, Erik!

    Lol, that's kind, but we really are rather boring, and we only delete our no-reply topics once they have dropped through the floor of RJ (as you describe: once they fall way way down the list).


    Satyricon, we feel that our more droll topics (no replies) are worthy of deletion once they have gone off the radar. If you like though, we'll stop doing that. icon_redface.gif

    Well, it's not my first preference, but actually if people want to delete threads they've made that nobody's replied to I don't generally have a problem. I think it's an issue if when deleting the thread, they delete other people's posts too.
