    I fail to search

    I dont want to enter guys but I dont remember where the thread is where you post ally codes. I know there was one but the search feature on this site works just fine.
    Ally code: 1531-7245-6013
    COD name: RmZ|Jasons34
    I do remember playing against a few of you. Some names ring a bell. If any want to join my clan, let me know.

    Edit:-

    First off I have done plenty of searches on this site and they are always a failuer. Pretty sad when you type in the exact thread name and you dont get a result or you get an entire list of results and none are it for instance "black ops guide" shows pages of results and the actual guide is on the 2nd page. You do much better searching for these threads using google. And obviously this is a huge problem with this site because theres tons of members trying to search and cant find the answers. But instead of trying to fix it, you make those members look like idiots.

    Thanks to both of you. Shift lock that was the exact thread I was looking for. I know there was one and at the time I was searching through the thread was when the thread was constantly posted so it always stayed at the top of the "new posts" section. But after awhile it wasnt there anymore and I have a hard time finding anything using this sites search. Lets get serious here. The search feature is horrible. Maybe not the search itself but this site is way too messy and that coud be why the search doesnt work right. All I am saying is that when you type in the thread title "black ops guide" for example, you shouldnt still have to scroll through pages to find it. This is why many many members complain about it. But is wasnt like I was asking a noobish question. I said I saw it before and all I basically wanted was a link like you gave above.

    I use google as well.... type in what you want then add wiihacks to the end. I almost posted a Let Me Google That For You link I do agree, the sites search seems to give you a lot of stuff to try to sift through.

    I just used your example to test it out... I click on advanced search and typed in "black ops guide" and it was the first thread on top of the list...

    again though.. I prefer google.. I type in : "site:wiihacks.com black ops" and everything comes up..
    Let me google that for you

    edit:

    LoL no pun intented I added the LMGTFY so you caould see.. lol
