I admit that I don't search the forums often myself. Today I notice that the drop-down list for forum selection is in a completely random order. It is insanely difficult to find a specific forum. Hasn't anyone else noticed this? Yikes!

Can we get this sorted in either logical or alphabetical order?

PS: I also think it is odd that the only link to searching a specific game's forum is from the main game page (or from a game's search results, which is also strange). Once you are actually viewing a post in the game's forums, the search link directs you to the main search page (which searches all forums).

Strange - it used to be sorted logically. I'll update it back

I don't use it much because it's so limited. If I type in, say, the phrase

Gathering of Friends

I get all forums with any of those words anywhere in them (in the title, in the first post, in the responses, etc).

If I type in "Gathering of Friends" (in quotes) I get nothing, which seems unlikely.

And being able to put in minus signs would be nice.

I guess you missed this text right next to the search box:
You can use AND to define which words must be in the results, OR to define words which may be in the result and NOT to define words which should not be in the result.
