Search commands...

So I have come to the conclusion that the search, on this forum is close to useless. I usually like to do a search before making a thread, but it seems whenever I make a search it doesnt find anything close to what I want. When I try and use typical Search Commands as I do on other forums to get better results, I realize that they are not enabled on this forum search ( For example I wanted to read some discussions concerning dimarzio pickups and jazz music, and what pickups would be good for jazz, so I searched, Dimarzio Jazz... random threads that have nothing to do with this are listed... I than click title only... and it seems to make only one of the words from my search appear in the titles of the threads which is no good. So I put quotes around it so I would get results with the exact phrase "Dimarzio Jazz". and I try +dimarzio +jazz, so i get both. I was unable to find even a single thread covering the topic I am looking for. It seems only to be usefull if your looking for something very commonly talked about, or a one word search. Search for "air classic" yeilded many threads containing the word "classic". Anyways, you get where I'm going, sorry to be so negative about it, but it was getting on my nerves. Maybe something can be done about this? It would be great to be able to use search commands on the forum search, and it would surely help cut down on un-necessary threads.

Re: Search commands...

A big +1 on this. No wonder so many people create so many threads to ask the same old questions.
