    This is a great thread to put at the begining with a title that reads:

    "NEWBIES: SEARCH these forums before you post your question, INSTRUCTIONS HERE ->"

    or

    "Please search these forums for an answer before you post your question"

    or

    "SEARCH these forums QUICKLY and EFFECTIVELY for ANSWERS to your QUESTIONS"

    or merely:

    "INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS to search these forums"

    ---------------------------------------------------

    But I must add that my searches have never given me a
    satisfactory collection of results. Most of the times I just
    give-up and search on google...

    For one thing, too many results pop-up and going through
    each one of them is a very SLOW process. I guess this is
    when people decide to start a new thread.

    There are some usability issues as well.

    I use advanced and select show posts instead of threads and have never had an issue.

    I've been using this suggestion for quite some time now. It has really helped.
    Thanks.

    Many mention how they have difficulty finding what they are looking for.
    Does anybody else have some suggestions on how you find the Threads you're looking for?

    I use Google. The Advanced search there let's you limit the search to discussion.treocentral.com. You can then use Boolean, Case sensitive, exact phrase and other searches the way Google allows you to.

    I think that TC should licence the search capability from Google and ondex their site.

    I almost exclusively use title searches.....if I looking to find something I alreday typed, once, twice....fifteen times , then I add me in the "posted by" box. Problem is, and I am guilty of this myself, peeps often don't put much thought intot hread titles....for example, i went to look for my post on the "2006 Phone Throwing Record" and I had posted the info under "Still msd at your Treo" or soemthing to that effect.
