Agreed, I have also often found the search engine ineffective

I've given up trying to figure out how this search-thingy Works! My theory is tiny goblins taking a great bunch of threads (how they decide which ones I haven't quite figured out yet...) and throwing them into the air. The one landing on top becomes the first result, and so on.
Does that seem too far-fetched?:p

I searched using your terms and got the only expected result. But I got it.


When trying to search for a race thread or any other thread, use the advanced search and in the drop menu under the search bar, choose Titles only, otherwise you'll get a gazillion of threads and posts where those words were mentioned.

Hope it helps.

if you hit "advanced search" and then "search titles only" you will find it
