    Break the Lounge down by year... 8000+ posts is tough to wade through.

    By month/year would be great in my mind. I don't visit the Lounge very often, and I think that is part of the reason. It takes pages and pages of backtracking to figure our what is going on with who.

    Wouldn't have to delete anything, just chunk and separate?

    Put it on a facebook timeline.

    Must admit LionLady that I do not understand what you said LionLady nor the one that answered to you, or made a comment.

    True I go back some years ago when I use to belong to this board & it was easy to answer any Thread or Post. NOW i must admit it is rather confussing, bar I seem to understand a bit when it comes to guns or any f/arms. The rest of the comments or such is a bit confusing. Mind you we use to be on another m/c board & that was easy to read, make a comment or such.

    Sorry if I sound like I am picking on you LionLady, but this board is not easy to understand, for some reason or another.
    Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you!!!!!!

    I like that movie Punch Drunk Love with Sandler and Watson.

    Some day I hope to be as tall as Paul Bunyan's baseball bat.

    Interesting idea.
    Not sure it would pass the effort required/benefit test though.

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    Agreed. I thought about it when I read the post this morning and I guess I just couldn't think of anything important enough posted in the lounge that would be searched. LOL

    Not saying that's a bad thing, either.
    Pam, maybe you can let us know what you were trying to find there or why it came about to request? Might help with a solution. Thx

    I think an issue is the several "mega-threads", which thousands of messages that have each have little relationship to any message more than 5 before it. Anyone who clicks on anything other than "first unread" is going to either short circuit their brain, conclude that this place is a bunch of weirdos, question the sanity of having opened their browser that morning, or a combination of the above...

    True, there's not much to search in them. And it IS a performance/stability issue for the forum software!

    Which was exactly the point I didn't make above.

    Signal to noise ratio in the bar thread is, uh, incredibly bad. 99% BS. Not worth wading trough to try and sift out any actual nuggets of motorcycle stuff. It just sucks that that crap spills over into threads about riding technique.
