Ok, I'm sure people are sick, like I am, of seeing four thousand threads about bands and nearly everyone of them filled with links to a single thread that NO ONE ELSE CAN SEEM TO FIND.
Well.
This happens in the metal-forum an amazing amount, so....
I present a simple, basic, step by step guide to using the search bar.

NOTE: I would like to stress that you should PLEASE look on the first page, simply to save time.
NOTE 2: I'm using UG black. It makes no difference to the process, ignore the color scheme and follow the instructions.

1) Click on SEARCH.


2) Type in the band/thread title you are looking for.


3) Change it to TITLES ONLY.


4) Select the forum you are searching in.


5) Press SEARCH.


6) Select the thread that is MOST ACTIVE. IE: With the most posts that is still active.


7) Enjoy.

Well, I fully expect this thread to die within 2 days and the pointless repeat threads to continue until mankind ceases to exist.
Its a life cycle of forums, deal with it. Until people are taught how to properly use internet forums in school, barely anyone will use the search function.

No-one can really do anything to stop it, just keep telling people how stupid they are and how they should use the search function. This thread won't stop it.

So do I.
But if even one n00b learns the value of the true search bar, I'll be happy.
Thanks for your optimism .

Ardius i propose an experiment lets put a sign up that says search bar forbidden and see how many people suddenly take an interest in it, haha

Optimism? On the internet? Heresy!

Aye, if it was illegal to use the search bar, likely everyone would use it. Maybe we should say that using the search bar is for haxzors.

Or promise that Xenu will come down riding Tom Cruise and take us to the promised land, if anything at least a quarter of the pop of ug will follow....if Scientology has taught us nothing its that people are morons....but thats just spam....

Haha either that or we just stick up search bars in every feasible blank spot on ug and see what happens?

This a fucking great idea! Either this or an another one of the same kind could do some great damage to the nubs if stickied. Or either way it could make the metal forum look like it is full of idiots not able to use this basic system.

Well apparently the metal forum is full of idiots that cant use a basic system with a few bright sparks peeping their heads over the sea of idiocy.... haha, im pretty sure that sticky'ing this mother is about the best you can do, eventually they'll figure it out or just keep on whining to a brick wall...

Nothing I didn't know, but a lot of users here don't.

Too bad they won't be bothered reading it before making a versus thread about Metallica and Megadeth.

I doubt this will do much, but it won't hurt to sticky this.

nothing new, but you get an A anyway. as you said, one last metallica thread is worth it.
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.

Wow, I think this is a life-changing experience.
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.

We should have a stickied thread with links to the threads on various bands.

there is one in the hardcore forum, but it still doesn't help any.

I'm sure it would help some people and prevent a lot of extra threads.

although if they're too lazy to use the search bar, i doubt that they'd go scrolling through a list of threads
#30
Well if it was in alphabetical order and/or arranged by subgenre it wouldn't be too hard. It would just take a while to make.

I'd be willing to make it.

This, without a doubt needs to be stickied. I also suggest posting the really popular/big band threads with a link. Like Opeth, Metallica, Necrophagist, etc.

If this is stickied, they still won't read it. Though, the effort is nice.

I miss the days of the Metal forum where if someone posted about Korn they were beaten severely, their mothers were violated, and their pets were set fire to. Then they were beaten severely again. I miss those kinds of flames. The incredibly malicious, yet never gonna happen ones.

If they're gonna be stupid enough to start a multiple thread then they aren't going to be smart enough to look at the stickies
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!
