What delaying the search is a valid question, important to address quickly. However, asking that doesn't help... Instead, here's my suggestion:
In the meanwhile, I'd like to suggest this post to be granted a sticky flair for the time we're missing the search. The post presents good alternative options for searching and is very useful for our investigations. There are several pros for my suggestion:
- Having the post on top would reduce double posting, making the work of mods much easier
- The value for the investigators is obvious, and might result as more quality posts to the forum
- People could find if their topic has already been discussed, gathering valuable material for theirt own posts
- It has been suggested that mods/admins are delaying the search functionality in purpose. I'd like not to agree with these suggestions, but showing good faith by the mods here, granting the sticky flair, would address good faith towards our mods and reduce nitpicking/claiming
Im aware that a mod has said a similar sticky post has been promised. However, this has already taken quite a while- considering how simple that would be. Please grant the sticky flair asap, and let this post be sticky for as long as a better option is available. Cheers to you all, your work is very important.
