How do you search MWO forums? It sure is odd.

So here I enter "Guides & Strategies" Simple right!

And this is what happens.

Don't know why, but "image is not working either.

Using chrome

To find out any answers tomorrow or later, I will have to go to my account and look for posts. Cuz, search will not come up with it.
Geeze!!!

Do you mean to do that on Google? Or is there something that I'm unaware of about MWO's own Search Fields? :o

Last time I checked, MWO's Site Search is broken and has been for some time. :(

Well, that's at least 'good days' for you. Google seems to love to railroad me off in every other direction, even when I edit the search terms for the 25th freaking time on one search task. Google definitely behaves nothing like they did about 15 years ago, that's for sure. :(

Yeah, it's pretty much become a 'running joke' of sorts. Use Google to find anything here on the MWO site, by including "site:mwomercs.com" with your search terms. :(

I was wondering about this myself. I'm new to this site and not being able to search the site for information about things on the site is a really bad look. They should hire someone to fix this or just remove the function. Also, at the very least, they should post something official about their search function not working.
