I know many users don't use this feature at all but sometimes I want to know if discussion I'd like to start was brought up before and so I write some tags in the search box above. And I have to say sotimes that its accuracy is bad:/ Really. It finds nothing and then after I put the topic I see couple simmilar discussions listed under my post. i even did a test I tried to search my own discussion using tags I had in it and Mr. "Powered by Yahoo search" didn't find it. Do you have the same experiences as me or not?

Yes this has happened to me a couple of times but usually if I haven't put whole text search and only done a search title search by accident and then I posted thinking there isn't one of that topic to find a similar, but luckily they have been very old discussions except once and I responded to the poster apologising as it was unitentional. Ellie :D Ps You are my referrer so I hope I am active enough on her for you. Ellie:D

I must say that the search engine served me fairly well... I use it once in a while to find discussions from certain interests without having to search on the interests page, and it found me some discussions. But I guess I never really needed an accurate finding so I can't say I tested the search engine thoroughly.

Personally, I find myLot search engine useful for me especially if I am looking for a particular or specific topic. Actually, I prefer to search topics that really interest me a lot. Have a great day! :-)

It's no problem for me to find anything I want by using the MyLot search feature. I think it is absolutely great. When I don't feel like going through my interests, or when I want to find something specific, I use the MyLot search feature.

I don't use the myLot search to search the web, but I do use it to research discussion that have been made previously.

And do you have good results using it? Are they accurate enough for you?

It works okay. It is in no way 100% accurate though. Even when you do a full text search if people didn't use the exact wording you are looking for, the discussion won't be pulled up.

hi pompon! i did experience the same thing. i wanted to be sure no one had ever started a discussion that i was thinking about coz i was pretty sure that someone out there must have started something about it because the topic was really popular. so i searched for it using the myLot search engine and i was so surprised that there hasn't any discussion about it yet. so i started the discussion and voila! after i had entered the tags and finished the discussion, that's when i only saw the related and almost the same discussions as mine! so i ended up responding to those discussions too even if i was kinda feeling embarrassed about it. .

I use it a lot to find a particular interest and also to check to see if someone has already started a discussion. It has always brought up my discussions, although you have to be careful with spelling. It is only as good as the members can make it though as it relies on us to supply tages to discussions.

I have never used it, although I could do with using it to try to find out about discussions I want to do that may have been done before, I shall have to give it a go and see if its any good or not.
