If you still haven't found what you're looking for....
(sorry, U2) you're going to find it soon!
As you may know, we updated the forums results UI, as well as how/what results show up. Yay for finding stuff you're looking for! Well, hold on to your hats as we are going to launch some VERY exciting search-related changes soon. and you won't be able to miss it smile
We'll be updating the sitewide search results, search placement, and having a nifty type ahead feature (where it provides matching results as you type for various features like friends, forums, etc). I'm sooo excited about this, and can't wait to see it live on the site. It will really help with navigation as well as letting users find what they're looking for.
On a side note, the company is in the middle (of a 2 day) bugathon - which means we're all focused on fixing those annoying bugs that would fall off the list, or little things that bug us (haha) on the site, as well as things that users have been asking for. I'm happy to say there are tons of bug fixes happening, and 3 of them are guild related (ah, guilds, you sassy tart, how I've missed you). More details will be posted in the Gaia Guilds Crew Lounge forum when all is cleared through our QA dept.
I'm sure there's something in the works since it seems to be be highly requested, but I'm hoping to see a "sort by date" function in the upcoming search updates. I think without that, the search feature actually can be quite frustrating right now. Looking forward to see what else you guys have in store for us. The type ahead sounds really nifty. I'm excited. <3

Vunderful! I love this bug-a-thon. Hopefully it'll be a yearly thing. :3
