Is there a way to search forum posts? The search field at the top of the page seems to be for games only.

Go nuts. Just don't reply to any threads that died from 2012 to 2008.

That search says it was last updated in june 2009. Couldn't the admins just make a search feature in the forums? Seems like a pretty basic thing.

Back in the olden days they had an option to turn the current "search games" bar into a community search bar, but they removed it. I think it only searched by thread name though, and for a search drawing from every word of every topic in the history of the forum, I think it was just more economical to keep it separate from the website itself.

Justtesting. I just used the link R2 provided to the search bar. It is up-to-date. I searched my name "Rychus" and It came up with things that I've posted today, and things I posted before. I even found my very first post.

So you couldn't even try it to see if it brings anything after 2009?

It's fine to use google to search the forums, I was just wondering why there wasn't a forum search in the site. Maybe the admins could just put a link to the google search somewhere in the forums instead. That would make it easier for ppl to find help.
