    Hey,

    I just wanted to let all of you that don't use these two crucial functions of the Vbulletin script know that they exist and are meant to be used before cluttering up this place.

    They are called SEARCH and THANKS. If you want specific information, go right up into the top left hand corner of the screen and put it in the field or click the search link right between new posts and quicklinks. Having a multiple posts everyday about "which cpa company is good" or "how do i get traffic" or "dO yOu gUYs kNo wHEr I cAN gIt 'whatever' pRoduCt?!?" is fuckin annoying when you are trying to sift through new posts.

    I know there has already been a post about the thanks issue, but I still see it happening and I know people want to desperately increase their post count and squeeze it in where they can but if you don't have anything better to say than thank you please use the damn button.

    I have included an illustration for your convenience.

    Unfortunately most people don't read, but post to enjoy reading their own words. And title containing "Rules" or "Enough with" may be not enough interesting for most readers.

    Eventually changing the title to something like "The $10,000 worth secret of earning high reputation" or "The fastest way to become hated and banned" would cause more people reading the rules of good conduct.

    ahh i finnaly foud a topic.. no thanks to the search function. i typed in "search" and it just poped up unrelated stuff then i tried to type in tor... i know there alot in here about tor cause i find it easyer to just brows randomly around.. everything on this site intrests me so its ok . but then when i want to go back to some thing i cant find it . i must of read 50 threads about tor but whhen i search tor nothing pops up ? is it me ?..

    so yah my tor question... i noticed that some times when i come on this site it says my ip was blocked?? is this a bad memeber of the tor network that i should not use ? i mean they can be reading my info.. if so how to block them so i dont use them
    ok while im here and have a place to ask that is somewhat in context..


    trucrypt... 5.1a do i still need vm ware to create a nother virtual drive that has a 2nd copy of windows that is incryted? there have been some changes to the update since teh long article from dr who \

    new things per volume:
    http://www x truecrypt x org/docs/?s=tutorial
    when you go to create volume it gives 3 options
    1 create container
    2 creat volume within a non-system partition or device\
    3 encrypt teh system partition or entire site

    will one of these make a secondary virtual encrypted drive with windows. im not ready to spend 200$ on VM any sugestions keep in mind im a newbee (learnt tor and geting hang of truecrypte but takes me a day on each lol

    can anyone get me a bank account in the US that is not in my name ? $$

    again sorry this is posted in the wrong place but at least the search question is in teh right place maybe im not used to navigating or something .

    lol this is about as bad of a place as you can possibly get!

    Is it possible to have BOOLEAN searching, so when I type in SEO Affiliate, I don't get umpteen hits.

    maybe there's a way to filter the search, that I don't know about.

    well you guys have to understand, this isnt google software were dealing with (which is valued im the hundreds of millions. just the software, nothing else) its a simple search function built for low usage via forums. It cant handle 2-3 letter things, as they can simply popup to often to index. Think if someone searched for "the" or "a" it would fry the server pretty quickly.

    The "Search" function is almost useless since many words are obfuscated... :D
    Like this... M@k3 M0n3y R3@11y F@st!

    (now see if you can decipher that mess.. snicker)

    Is there any syntax to do a two word search? I have tried quotes and plus signs, but never am able to narrow my search using a phrase.
