For a long time I've noticed sometimes the search feature will sometimes not bring up threads that I remember being on here. Sometimes when I search later, the threads come up. I don't think it has to do with the age of the thread, as I can find threads from 2014, but ones made in 15 or 16 don't show up. I hesitated to even mention it as I'm not even a member so maybe that's part of the reason. It happens on the vacuum site too...

Hi Cole, Yes the search for regular members is powered by google and whatever they scan and store is searchable.

For upgraded members there is the "Dirt Finder Search" on Vacuumland and "Super Searchalator" on AW. They usually turn up more, however searching can at times be challenging if you don't remember the words exactly.

If you can remember a keyword and the poster, the DirtFinder is an amazing feature!

If you go back far, you can see or find, or remember anything. If you go far enough, (years), you'll see the good, the bad, the ugly, and the ridiculous.

it's a great way to see mini meets, parties, VCCC conventions, etc.
