    What were you searching for, which you couldn't find?

    Because people don't use tags when they open a thread. ie: this one.

    Maybe we should make tags a *required field, when starting a new thread.

    I also hate using the search function because it is, IMO, hardly ever useful. I just go through pages and pages of threads before asking my questions.

    Tags is NOT a way to improve the search.

    I'd still like to know what the OP was searching for. Maybe there is an issue with the search index.
