ATTENTION ALL: Please Read Before Posting New Threads!

As you all are very aware of, we have an abundance of threads that are started regarding modifications such as exterior, tunes, downpipes, intercoolers. etc. etc. The last thing we need is another tuner war on these forums.

Over the past few months I've done some trial runs of our search system and have found it to be absolutely useless. For some reason it truncates a lot of useful stuff when searching acronyms and tuner companies. No wonder new guys come on here and say they searched and couldn't find anything. I now have everyone's solution.

I use this method exclusively with any forum and ANY site that I wish to gain further detail from. Its simple, basic, and just plain easy to use. Normally, before a person can type a "repost" or "this has been discussed" post I've already provided 10 different links to posts worth reading.

So let's being:

1) Find out what you're wanting to look for. IE: Which Tune is the Best?

2) Is it too general? Lets make it more detailed. IE: Which tune is the best + APR + GIAC + REVO. The plus signs will tell the search engine to look for these key words.

3) Go To Google (link) and type your request

4) Now here is the ticker. Add your requesting site in this manner:

Which tune is the best + APR + GIAC + REVO site: golfmk6.com

Click image for larger version

Name:	Google2.JPG
Views:	234
Size:	21.5 KB
ID:	15067

5) Enjoy your multitude of hits and do your research. You might have to sift some and dont feel afraid to ask where a particular thread is. Some of the veterans can possibly help out and point you in the right direction.

We should prob get an FAQ Section if there isn't one already.
1. Oil wars.
2. Tuner wars.
3. Exhaust wars.
4. Suspension wars.
5. Lighting wars.

I think if those 5 were covered... we would have nothing to post about anymore

Well, members like to receive personalized service so they create threads instead of using an existing thread because their situtation is unique

They will create a new thread even though there are 5 threads on the 1st page of the respective section covering the topic they wish to discuss. I've been moderating forums for a long time and learned you cannot change the world, nor can you get frusturated by human behavior.

At the end of the day it is why we have moderators We move, merge, delete and close to keep forums as clean and productive as possible.

Oh trust me I know. I just figured It might help someone out who needed it. The search function on this site blows and I had trouble navigating It before I figured this neat trick out.

good points, but its kinda like trying to convince people not to vote against their own economic interests because of "cultural issues" - that get talked about once every 4 years and then nothing changes

I personally use search all the time, but I don't understand why folks get uptight about the newbie threads. I can spot them a mile away, so I just move on to the next topic until I find something worth reading. BTW I'm not accusing anyone in this thread of being uptight. Just saying...

Its a symptom of vBulletin. SMF is no better.

I agree. its best to skim over them. Most of the times I'll shoot them a link for reading pleasure and the rest is up to them. I've learned that I dont always need to contribute in EVERY thread. I used to be bitter about it, but if you just give them the info, the thread normally dies out really quickly. However, if I troll, normally the thread goes for about 7 pages because everyone needs to contribute to a derailed thread lol Funny how that is?

Nevertheless......this should be a useful tool for anyone.

Yes, the search engine here is not great, and yes almost always I use google in the way you've shown to search this site, and it's how I also search most forums. Good tips!

Its a plugin for vBulletin - not sure if its compatible with our version of their software or not. I dislike that is smacks you in the face with advertisements but appreciate that it does make it easier when searching for things like "H&R springs" where the "H&R" would be omitted on our current site when searching.

I'm a huge fan of vBulletin as I have seen a lot of what it can do however we only use a fraction of what is available. I'm not sure of the reasoning.
