[quote=“hatch”]Hello everyone. I want to find some information(threads) relating to the differences between Kaohsiung and Tapei. I’m sure the thread(s) already exists but when I do a search, it brings up between the two city names(threads names, etc) something like 150 pages.
From what I’v read, it’s better to post in existing threads rather than replicate a topic and it makes sense. I’ve been searching for almost one hour and still no results as to what I want to read about specifically although I’m sure it must already be archived.
Is there any tips I should know about using the search engine to save going through so many pages when I do a search.
Can I limitate my search to a specific forum?
If I can’t find what I’m looking for, should I just start a new thread and add a note for the moderators about my hesitancy.
When you start a thread, how do you basically make sure it hasn’t been done already? There’s over 250 000 articles posted…That’s an overwhelming amount of information.[/quote]
When i use the box on the upper right corner of every page on the forums, I enter the words “Taipei Kaohsiung” - I get only 26 pages and about 380+ messages
When I add the word “schools” after the names of the two cities, it refines the search to 37 posts.
In other words, the search up there works for me, and works similar to how you refine searches in google. The more terms you add, the closer you get
