I struggle with the search function on the website. I'm not asking anyone to improve it.

I'm asking if an experienced member can add a post that describes how to accurately, definitively, and concisely explain how to use the search function and it's advanced features with examples.

There is no need to link to specific threads but example searches would be nice, detailing what they would return. No one needs to even link them (searches).

If it's easier then please link.

It would go great in the New Members Section.

Be sure to read the FAQ section for advice.
I´ve read it many times.

Other tips; you can subscribe a topic and
look for it later. You can narrow the results with
"search these results" and add a new search
word. Get creative. Cogitate.

If I hit the bonanza I´ll use pen and paper
or save. Never lost again, that article/wisdom is...

Then, of course you can go to the members section
and look up what a member has written, there is
a function for that, a clickable "search user´s posts."
You can "search these results" again for specifics.

The route:

Members > SlimTitan> Search User´s posts> Search these results>

Also there is an Italian loan word a member
of this forum uses... ;) Worth a mention...
Language patterns. It is a written forum.

I also use google search for phrases ie "let it go", "ball stealing", "steal the ball" with the "site:" mention.

IE : https://www.google.fr/#hl=fr&q=site%3Anaturalfreedom.info+%22ball+stealing%22+OR+%22steal+the+ball%22 <- French google, just to show.

Be mindful, THAT DOESN'T show the Lounge section.

You remind me of myself before I was infected by the matrix and lost a good majority of my vocabulary.

People always told me that I was hard to understand/incomprehensible. Consequently, I thought that was bad. Negatively changed.

Often times, your posts are incomprehensible to me unless I open up the way I interpret grammatical structure and look up some of the words you use.
