No search engine doesn't bother me, but that fact that I can't even search my own posts is really annoying, at least give us that one back if it's at all possible. I've never used the search function but I always "find all posts" myself to see if anyone has directly quoted and replied to anything I've said. To be honest I thought the use of GIFs and all the avatar stuff (oh and the chatbox) was enough incentive for the premium scheme but I guess not.
I'd probably hazard a guess and say that free members clicking on links and bringing traffic in and out of the site generates alot more income than the premium membership scheme does anyway.
I still won't be buying a membership though I'm not going to be one of those users that whine and say they're going to another forum because, well, I probably would still come back and browse anyway. Not to mention I've settled quite nicely here. But yeah, having the ability to at least search our own posts is quite compromisable I think and not too much to ask.
How many ads do you click?
Maple Leafs - Raptors - Steelers - Blue Jays - Florida State
I'd be more pissed off if I've spent 11 years of my life browsing the same forum and amassing an average of 4 posts every day. On average you've logged on and posted 4 posts for 3650 days of your life. But then again, I ain't even mad. I just can't search my own posts.
