The forum search feature is still weird - I was looking for this thread, searched for "social media", nothing. Searched for "The very best of social media", nothing. New tab, google the same thing + Neogaf, first hit.

Maybe a silly question, but are you clicking the gear icon first and checking the “search titles only” box?

Also, in advance search, make sure to check “results by date” instead of “results by relevance”. Might help.

I don't have time for "advanced" searches! lol
I typically just like to use the search function as is, straight from the top navigation bar. I use that to find a couple threads I post in, for the most part it does a good job but I thought it was funny that it wouldn't give me a result for this thread even when I wrote the exact title in there.

But you're right, if I do an advanced search and click that title only box, it does find the thread.

I find that unless I click the gear icon next to the search bar and then check the “search titles only” box before I do a search, then I get the same problem you have. If you do as I say, the thread you are looking for will likely show up near the top of the results.

This is from a UK news reporter, after being trolled on Twitter after announcing she was going to jump off a mountain:



I'm not sure she realises what that emoji means. If she does, then this tweet could have all sorts of hidden meanings...
