advanced search works fine - just learn how to use it. Problem solved.

but you obviously didn't think of that after the first post of yours got removed else the next wouldn't have been removed.
main search box isn't too bad as long as you sensibly apply the filters on the side after the results come up. depends if its a mainstream item or not.
main search could be improved though with some custom defaults or even just more sensible defaults.

it was good advice as obviously you dont know how advanced search works if you continually cant find deals before posting dupes!

dont think I have EVER posted a dupe.

name one dupe and how you searched for it before posting and I'll show you the error of your ways

or just continue to live in ignorance and belittle sensible advice.

It uses google so its a bit more cleaver at guessing what your looking for. Googles search budget is a bit bigger than HUKD's!

and doesnt bring the results back in a totally bizarre random order like hukds NORMAL search

its also forgiving with spelling... such as if you search for "xmini" on mine, it covers "x mini" and "x-mini" etc...

ok cool just wondered

yeah 'normal' search here is very weird order for returning results - change order and would be decent quick finder.

(edit: lol just noticed you can resize reply box, default is terrible for following quotes. much better)

I haven't even said anything yet and already I've been criticized and chose to live in 'ignorance' according to some of HUKDs more heartless users.
I don't use the 'normal' search anymore as you previously said it has a mind of its own and you just don't get any where.
In the advanced search I will input the deal, search all deals, usually just find deals to 6 months back so I can check through them, searching all forums and all categories.
This way the search is more wide spread. If I can't see the deal then I will post it, then a few days later it is removed.
I have found men on this site to be more abrupt with their replies on this site and just think the way they ask or word things could be more thought out.
I will however use your search gary see where I get with that - so many thanks for that.
This does happen now and again but not always.

what do you mean you haven't said anything yet?
you said you searched and posted duplicates. if you use advanced search right then you should not post duplicates.
you only need to search 'deal forum' and '1 month and newer' if post is over a month old its allowed a repost.
you should also check page 2 of the results if there is more than 1 page.
if you supply an example of a deal you submitted which got spammed as csiman suggested then would be easy to show if it was search that failed or not.

your sexist remark (dont see sex listed in profile anywhere) was a bit funny, i guess if you are allowed to generalise then perhaps we all should and you should listen to the men like a good girl? nah that would just be a silly thing to say.

You can tighten up your search further, for example instead of searching 6 months in advance why not search 1 month? after 1 month any deal posted can be reposted, also only check the deals forum if it isn't posted in deals then its not a deal is it. (Obviously if posting a voucher, just search vouchers and so forth)

p.s. No need for sexist comments, the men might bark louder, but the women bite harder
