im a big fan of the searchbar BUT its not the best search device i have seen. for me it pretty much seems that you have to know the exact name of the thread your looking for and this is problematic for many reasons. kids tell eachother to use the searchbar before they make a thread to check for repeats but unless they type in exactly the name of the thread they have no idea if a thread exists on the same topic. my suggestion is make the searches better. maybe start a tagging system like youtube or something.
