I've upgraded the search box such you can quicksearch a bunch of different things on BGG. Games, Designers, Publishers, Forums, GeekLists, and Users.

Enjoy!

Yes, nice ...

However, I know I am not alone in requesting a larger (ie longer) searchbox.

Any chance of making it physically larger? (I do think it's a really nice addition, though.)

There is still no easy way to search the geek for recipes.

This is an outrage.

So any chance improved fuzzy searches (for game titles, at least) are coming soon?

I dunno ... I was just counting characters for some of the games on the Hot List ... maybe something more in the 20-25 range?? It just seems it should fully accommodate the text for the great majority of searches.



And now it's time for ... A Footnote in History!!

It is because of Herbert von Karajan (late long-time conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic) that compact discs were designed with a capacity of 73 minutes, long enough to accommodate Beethoven's 9th Symphony. (Yes, subsequent improvements seem to have pushed that capacity to aound 80 minutes.)

yuk boo! hisssss... it is NOT any 'easier' to FIND a particular 'game' NOW, as it WAS with the "numbers & letters" designations as before! Especially if you only 'recall' just a portion of such! I suppose we'll have to await some "n00bz" to TEST this out eh?

Possibly my favorite improvement since the forums! Its a seemingly small thing, but sometimes small changes can make a big difference. It always drove me nuts that the searches were scattered all over the place. O.K. not really, but its much better this way.

Speaking of which, remember when the change from the journals to the forums was going to be the end of the Geek? Remember how badly that turned out when you read the next complaint.

YAY! They've also included the 'numbers & letters' yet again, for finding GAMES here now! I also USE that for locating NEW 'games', about which I am in the process of entering into the "queue" here. As some of them might be close in NAME or the like, then it does help to locate those quickly while engaged in these activities.
