First off, let me thank you for this wonderful resource! This is a great forum with a very active and helpful group of people and I'm thoroughly enjoying myself!
There are a few things I'm noticing that I'd like to bring to the table. Not complaints, but questions... if nothing gets done about them, I'll be okay... I'll adapt.
1) I have a hard time finding my own posts on this forum. I use the Search page a lot, and have no trouble finding messages by roberts, jpeters and hatsrule by entering their name in the Search Keywords field... but when I enter my own, or part of my own, I get zero hits. Is this because I'm a new register and the database doesn't know how to dig up my posts? or because there's a dot in my user name? I've tried both This Month and Older... TM & Newer with the same results.
2) I find myself using exactly the same search criteria every time that I go the Search page. is there any way to persist my defaults so that the search process can be collapsed to simply Keyword entry and a click on a Search button? Maybe we all have different favorites, but I hot All Open Forums / This Month and Older plus the defaults that are already highlighted.
3) Is there any way that more than 5 thread entries can be displayed on a page? Most entries aren't very long, so I don't think that it would be a big download speed hit if the default number were closer to 20. Is the 5 post display done for Mobile users or for server-side bandwidth saving?
