Is there any way to search the archives?

I must say it's pretty sad that this site has no search function at all. It is incredibly hard (and sometimes impossible) to find specific posts from the past.

I was just wondering whether it would be possible to search the archive instead. Probably not but I thought I would ask.

i seem to only be able to search for threads/users, but i can't narrow it down

the rest of the time i get the shitty error message "your word is too common" even if i use some complex ass word

"Your word is too common" = "Search is disabled".

posting history will pull up your 500 most recent posts.

the same goes for threads, and most people have started fewer than 500 threads, so that means you can access all of your own threads. If you can remember who started a thread you posted in, you can look it up that way.

you can access all posts where someone sent you a rep.

In the absence of search function, that is the best i can come up with.

Errrrrrrrrr ...

But the rep thing!!!!!! Incredible advice, never thought of that!!!
And the advantage is, it only brings up the "quality" posts anyway.
