Although the forum search results are supposedly sorted by relevance, many searches return old and out of date threads ahead of more recent ones.
The current search options are "one day", "one week", "one month", "one year" and "all", with "all" as the default option.
Many searches also return an overwhelming number of results. Large result sets are truncated at 1000 entries.
It may also be useful to add additional options such as "two weeks", "three months" and "six months".
Perhaps the search settings could be adjusted to make "one year", or perhaps "six months", the default time span?
Exactly one year from now, on 26 June 2015, the way that calls to 084, 087 and 09 numbers are charged will undergo radical changes. At that point, several thousand threads discussing pricing of those calls will become completely irrelevant. I'd like to think the other discussion going on about archiving older topics will have reached a conclusion and been implemented by then.
This idea really should be implemented. Members are still posting replies advising the 2020 text to install internet settings, presumably because they're new to the network and find the advice when doing a search.
