Howzabout this:

Center the Search link at the top of each page, bolded, blinking, and +8 font size.

How about making it the equal of the "Post New Topic" and "Post Reply" buttons? Same look and make it the first one in line.

The problem with these types of fixes is that they require a hack be placed in the UBB Code. This causes us to have to hack it on each new release.

I think we were both being facetious. The point was to have folks perform a search before asking a question that has been hashed and rehashed ad nauseum.

Good Morning Coinneach, Mal, Rich, & Dennis-

Couldn't agree with the notion of these suggestions more!

While trying to remain patient with newcomers to our sport and TFL in particular, it's getting tougher and tougher to see posts like these without screaming:

"What is the best carry handgun?" or "What is the best combat shotgun?"

Heck, I completely scanned this forum going back 100 days to make certain that nobody had asked it already....and all I had to do was ride on Coinneach's initial message!

Thank you for considering making SEARCH more prominent on the pages.

Regards,

~ Blue Jays ~
