I went to CRF just to look and I still like this sites better.
But the search is actually a couple of times more useful than the crappy thing here
Although, when I was searching for "11-24" the sec on hit was a moron trying to compare 11-24 with 14-24 Nikkor. With charts from Roger Cigala who said a zillion times you can't compare between different systems.
Oh my, those Canonistas….
This forum need a kick in the backside chop-chop !
I don't think installing a new forum software is a realistic option, as it makes the current database obsolete, and implies a complete "restart". However details of the theme (i.e. appearance) are easier to change, and plugins can be installed to expand the functionality.
If you want changes, it's a good idea to specify what exactly you don't like. Just posting "This sucks, this other forum is better" is most likely not gonna trigger any concrete changes.
The search is an in-site Google search as everyone is using it, I don't know what would be the problem, unless the software produces a strange output from the database, which I haven't heard of (then again, I'm anything but an expert on the Vanilla software).
Very frustrating for a new member, who on their first post are told " do a search" and then finds the thread locked or closed
most subjects are duplicated on the new forum
When we say "do a search" do we mean
You question has already been answered, so please go away
or do we mean
Please add you comment to an existing thread
But as it is not possible to add a comment, on the old forum, the new member is likely to go away in any case
I do agree with @sevencrossing's assessment of what is found, but the closing of a thread is really up to the moderators.
a search "24 -120 vs 24 -70" brings up 1,550 results
none of the first 5 pages seem relevant
