It used to be that if I searched for geeklists, I'd get a simple list of geeklists, so I could find one that I wanted.

Now it's a gigantic all inclusive list of every mention of the search word (or string) in every geeklist and geeklist item, with no sense of relevance. Even a word like "balloon" nets me 15 pages of results to weed through.

angry Well, I guess I'll stop using this feature, now that it's so broadly scoping that it's bloody useless.

Clearly then we need an 'advanced search' for Geeklists. Many times I've hunted for some useful information I read in a Geeklist but neglected to bookmark. I remembered a phrase from the list item, but until now, it wouldn't be picked up in the search.

So I welcome the change. Until, that is, I want to search just the list titles!

So how about the best of all worlds? Give an advanced search, with the option to search any number of Geeklist related things (titles, items, item comments, list comments)? And ideally let the users configure their own default selection so they don't need to tick off everything each time they search.

I have to agree the new search is a pain. Trying to find the current thrift find list is an exercise in futility. Th e new search doesn't work at all when you have revolving Geeklists like the thrift find one.

Every change gets complaints.

They're just a bunch of CapAp voters...
