I suggest that if at all possible, the default search be switched from bringing up THREADS to bringing up individual POSTS
! I honestly think this would be the single most productive change that could be made to this forum
As a newbie finding my way around here, after performing my searches
, I'm sure I have posted quite a few questions that would have been answered easily during my searches if I had known to select POSTS under the ADVANCED SEARCH section when performing my searches. It is difficult and overwhelming to sort through all of the threads brought up in a search and try to find the needed information, though I do try before posting a question.
For newbies to this wonderful forum, there is a lot to learn about how the forums operate, and it takes a little while to get the hang of things. In the meantime, we ask questions that patient folks repeatedly answer, for which I'm sure we are all grateful!
I don't know if moderators have the ability to make this change
, but I hope so. Meanwhile, I am grateful to have finally figured this out!
