~ HOW IT WORKS ~
You simply type words into the "search box" and it will find instances of those words on the website. The "search box" is located near the top right of every page on the forum.
~ THE SEARCH FUNCTION IN PRACTICE ~
Let's use the following situation as an example:
Ssonik wrote:mute wrote:Better yet, try Jayce's Welcome to Rainbow. Holy fuck.
Ok, Do I search for that here? Or is it in a pack?
Ill start looking.
How the heck is this user ever gonna find the simfile that was referred to?! With the magic of the search feature, of course!
Notice how I have typed in "jayce welcome to rainbow." That is because we know that the simfile author's name is "Jayce" and the simfile we're looking for is called "Welcome to Rainbow." Next, we simply click that "search" button and see what turns up...
Sweet merciful Jesus! We've been led directly to a post where this Jayce fellow posts links to all of his simfiles! (Including, but not limited to, the aforementioned "Welcome to Rainbow!")
~ CONCLUSION ~
That's all there is to it, folks. So next time you find yourself fanny flustered and unable to find things on an internet forum, remember that you're just one search away from making all of your dreams come true.
