Are you a FORUM SEARCH TOOL user? "Do you use the forum's search tool?" is the POLL question. Please give us comments too - specifically, if you are a forum search tool user - do you know the use of characters such as + - and "

I use it only for "in-forum" searches, Past posts, Trying to find server info etc. Not for external links (i just use google). I do however use the + - " tags to refine my search if i need to but rarely. Have used these types of forums for years so never put much thought into it......Why are you asking ODA?? Thinking of removing the search options???

For those that dont know what they mean:
+ means to focus/find that exact word within your search E.G "Innkeepers +Tivook"
Quotation Marks "" mean to find the words BUT IN THE CORRECT ORDER. E.G ""Argentum Regio Server Address""
- Means to exclude the word from your seach E.G "Werewolf Cats Tivook -Lycan"

Hope that helped a little Wink

i use the search techniques to refine it more if i get too many results, though i tend to find too little so i mainly use keywords.

This poll is to find out how many people use the search function to find out the information they need.
