to the mods,why cant i search

since ive been on this site almost 3 months now,i have never once been able to use the search option.i see alot of people giving other people flack about not useing the search feature on here.but how can they search if it never allows you to?there has been numerous times that i was sure the question i wanted to ask was already asked,but of course i couldnt do a search so i had to ask it,then you get the "why dont you use the search feature first,this has been discussed before"it would be nice not to have to ask if you know the answer is already there,(if you could search for it).

Actually you did have a successful search in September and you've only tried 5 times this month.

There have been, actually, 55 successful searches by non-premium members in the last hour. It, very much, had to do with what time of day you try your searching. It's in your best interest to do your searches in the morning before the west coast folks get logged in.

Cheers

Or spend the $24 & get a Premium Membership & have the search feature work 95% of the time. Not only that but you're helping support RC......

It amazes me how many people won't spend $24 to support a site that has more info then any book you could ever buy.

I challenge most reefers that haven't upgraded to a Premium Membership to look thru all thier "reef related" items. I bet there's more then $24 worth of items you never use, but you won't spend $24 for something you use everyday........

Actually if you read the search engine answers you can have an alternate search for free.

You took this the wrong way. I'm not blasting you at all. In fact, I'm sorry if I came across that way.............

What I probably should have said is once you spend the $24, you'll wonder how you ever navigated this site w/o it. I didn't pay for the first few months I was here & since I've upgraded, I not only feel better because I'm supporting a site w/ a tremendous amount of archives & an infinate amount of knowledge, the search feature ALWAYS works!!!!

Again, if I offended you in any way, please accept my sincere apology!

Steve
