I donít have any major issues with the site. Search engine can be frustrating sometimes, better stickies may help. As stated, before if Iím going to post a phone photo, I email it to myself and select medium. Most of the issues I have are created by the Wizards of Bill and MS 365.

The search function is my only complaint, but that is far out shadowed by the wealth of knowledge and true sense of community here. Ive never seen an online forum with so many people happy and willing to help each other out, this is a very unique place and I am very proud to be a member.

Try this regarding the search function. If you know youíre searching for a deer related topic letís sayÖ. Open up the deer hunting board and search from there. Iíve had no issues to the point that it makes me wonder what the heck people are complaining about with the search function.  It literally always works fine for me that way. The search function even works in Tapatalk now.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Zero complaints here.

Fantastic group of people....  and I can click ignore on the very few that provide no value.

Can't ask for more.

Obviously, I enjoy the forum. Improvements are always nice to anything. Thanks Dale.

I would take a look at Wordpress based software like bbpress:

I think its like a lot of things. If you use the search feature a bunch you learn it's quirks. Ive always had trouble with searches. I get 1k hits or zero.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Well that in itself shows a limitation.

No site wide search of posts from a user for example.

Posting media also causes a lot of frustration.

Click on the user's name or profile.
Click on banner that says Profile info
Click on Show Posts

That will show you every single post that user has made on the forum since they started their account.

That still isn't a search and if have to read a FAQ or go to a forum to learn about how to search for user posts then you aren't arguing in favor of the software.

You should be able to search for @parasite from the home page and get the results. That is what everyone expects.

These types of forums have moved to wordpress. It's the standard and would solve a lot of these problems.

mind blown!!!! I never knew this and always struggled with the search function. Well apparently its because I was searching "deer" topics in the "other big game" section etc. Just did some playing after this and the search function works awesome 🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♂️

I like the forum as is. My only complaint is the picture posting is not as easy as it was. I dont know if my phone has increases the data size, but it (the site) used to easily post 6 or 8 pics at a time, and  no need for a bunch of resizing or screen shot takes. Now every pic must be a screen shot, some of those dont load and its limited to 2 at a time. Lots of extra steps. It has definitely cut down on my posting of pics just due to the effort involved in getting it to work at times.
