I think it's getting pretty bad here in The Pit that nearly all threadstarters are having to apologise in advance in their post just in case there may have been a slightly similar thread sometime in the past. It really annoys me that people feel like they have to do this, because of people not letting up about it and making stupid Search Bar jokes.

Fair enough, some threads have been done heaps of times and it gets kind of annoying. But usually the thread is only a little bit similar in some way or another.

So please guys, let up on the Search Bar jokes and if it IS a thread that been done many many times just let the TS know nicely, as they probably had no idea. You can't expect people to search for somethine every single tim they would like to make a new topic.


- Oh, and sorry if this has already been done, I used the search bar and nothing came up...

And then god made the search bar, and saw that it was good.

Search Bar is a pain in the ass. You have to go through a ****load of pages to find anything. Especially if it is in a long Sticky thread.

i'm just a litte too shallow to consider
that maybe i've been a little more eager

Yeah...


I was hoping to be the first to say 'search for your own thread to TS'

next time buddy, use the search-bar
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Speaking of Search Bar Nazis...I searched for Hitler today.

It's not a joke, it's the truth. It's one of the rules, and it's spamming up this place even more when people create the same thread over and over again.


It's also spam to start a thread where you do nothing but talk about the search bar problem. Thanks for contributing!

Heheh.

But the thing is, I don't mind when people who really do make another 'Lars Ulrich is a Toss' thread or something, because there's been a thousand of them already. But when a TS is scared to make a topic because they're afraid of getting jumped on by everyone, it's really not fai. Especially if it could potentially be a great topic.

And really, The Pit IS a spam forum anyway.

Discussion about random topics is what I mean by spam, not just posting random BS like LOLWUT (Which I was punished for recently >_<

The Pit is NOT a spam forum, it's an OFFTOPIC forum... they are two seperate things. The Pit is here for discussion. Not random LOLWUT crap.

I don't believe so. You're discussing things, right? Which seems to fit DeliriumBassist's description of The Pit.

Not my description:

The Pit (609 Viewing)
The forum for all general discussion that is not covered by other forums, from music issues to whatever.

And coupled with the no spam rule... well, that makes this an offtopic forum.

So posting a pic of LOLWUT pear would be considered spam of course. But what about a thread dedicated to the discussion of the pear and its origins? (Assuming that one hadn't been made before)

Search bar nazism is developed from the result of spending too much time on the internet, thus becoming jaded with it.

The thing is, the UG search bar is an arse raping inbred ****wit.

It CONSISTENTLY deems the most relevant words in my search as "too common", and therefore EXCLUDES THEM FROM THE SEARCH.

Searching for a thread called "What are you known for here", it said "What, Are, You, and Here were not included in the search." HOW THE HELL AM I MEANT TO FIND ANYTHING?!?!?!?!

/rant.
