MyLot searches: they don't always work! I have done searches on discussions I have started, using tags that I have entered myself and it comes up with nothing! It will say something like, "we couldn't find any discussions about..." Ihave tried it with a few of mine where I knew that there might not be many discussions on the topic so I know that my discussion should turn up. But it doesn't! Anyone else notice this happening with their discussions? Why even bother having a search feature if it doesn't work?

Great discussion, AxranraRose, I should have thought of it. For I too have tried searching for one of my discussions a long time ago and couldn't find it. Then last night I did a search on migraine headaches because I knew a friend had started one some time ago, but it said that it couldn't be found.. I will be keeping an eye on this discussion, for I would like to know also..

It's frustrating! Especially when you know you created the topic and then it doesn't show up in the search. No wonder there are 100 of the same topic on here all the time!

Yeah, and we are not supposed to copy another discussion? How will we know if it doesn't come up? Maybe they will have a better plan in the future..:)

I am having the same problem. I try to do a search before I make a discussion to make sure I am not duplicating, but the search bar does not work for me either. I go ahead and post my discussion and make it in my own words anyway so as to not duplicate someone elses discussion.
