Forum Search Tools - comments

I'm finding the search tools here unhelpful.

I'd like to research a topic and recent activity (due to updates) is very relevant. However, I type in my initial search terms and everything on the page is from 2 years ago - not very inspiring!

I'd like suggest - no, *insist* - that at the very least the *advanced* search tool allow some kind of prioritisation by dates - and any other terms - both forwards *and* backwards - to allow for flexibility at the hands of the users.

As it is, I'm going to have to try and use google's engines to search cached pages using their very well developed search tool.

One more point - Why have a 'Search forums'box (that you have to delete the words 'Search forums'from before you use it) that does not actually search anything or work at all, and *then* have a 'Search' tab that actually *does* !?!

UI needs some refinement here - possibly someone needs to be in charge of standardising the user experience?
