Search by user
Search by date
search: "sky" + category "female scans"
BROKEN, 72 results... first page = 1 fanart, 2 sigs, 1 wall, 1 avatar, 3 member pictures, 1 wallpaper, 3 female scans, 2 male scans
-11/15 of my results are not what I wanted
search: "sky" + category "fanart"
BROKEN, 72 results, identical to the previous ones
-14/15 of my results are not what I wanted
-there is no search by tags... why am I tagging this stuff again?
-the only way to access advanced search from most gallery pages is to submit a blank search
-default search on most pages is the broadest possible search: all categories and all fields including descriptions and comments. Making default searches incredibly broad and the results more irrelevant than not.
-searches for small words and abbreviations turn up every word that contains that combination of letters.
- BL (Boy's Love) turns up results for "black" and "blue"
- AI (a girl's or character's name) turns up the words "ain't" and "AIM"
- CAT (animal) turns up "catch" and "category"
There is no way to specify an exact search.
Thank you and I hope this info is useful.
