Search function

If I'm understanding correctly, one has to be a paying member of Interference to use the search function. While I understand that this function probably uses a lot of extra bandwith n whatnot that costs, I think it would help users (esp new users) to keep from posting repetative threads.

I know that I've not posted a few things because I worry that it's probably a repeat, or I'm not sure which of the many forums it might belong in. I doubt I'm the only one , and I think being able to use the search function would probably help people like me.

Thanks for your consideration.

like you said, it uses up a lot of bandwidth. unfortunately, it's too expensive of a feature to let everyone access it, so we have to limit it only to premium members.

it's only $2 a month or $12 a year to pay for it, which is a small price to pay if the features are important to you.

Is there a reason why you have to wait 30 seconds in between searches? Perhaps a bandwidth issue or something?

Not a big deal - I was just wondering. Sometimes when I do a search and nothing comes up, I go back to do another one right away and forget about the 30 seconds.

Let me search!

Just a though...

Can everyone be alowed to use the search function? I think ti would greatly reduce clutter on the board as very often i find my self making or seeing duplicate topics to ones that were posted from any where to a few weeks ago to a few days.

I understand it might pose some tech problems with space but I think it would slow down the huge growth of topics in the board and even lead to more thought out, comprehensive and significant posts.

Dont get me wrong about going for a premium membership though. I am sure it is great and would help what seems to be a great community, I just dont know if this is the place for me yet.

Thanks for listening

Most people won't even use the band index in B&C, and that is right at the top of the page and easier to use than search. So I really doubt allowing everyone to use search would solve topic duplication problems.

Another thought is you can get Premium Membership on a monthly basis for $2 per month. That would give you the time to check out the place more as well as check out the actual offerings of Premium Membership. All for about half the price of a latte.
