Can make the 'Search Forum'...

Can make the 'Search Forum' box even more useful than it already is?

Every forum probaly has one.

But each one is only relevant to the individual forum it is in.

Maybe Topix could expand upon it to allow additional search types.

Here are some ideas:

The first two ideas are similar to how the 'Search Forum' box is currently used for individual forum searches, except they suggest expanding them to work with multiple forum searches as well.

1.) A multi-forum search option that allows finding same thread titles in more than one forum. For example, sometimes a user starts a thread in one forum but then copies and pastes it in other forums. And sometimes different users, on different forums, may coincidentially start a thread by the same title.

2.) A multi-forum search option that allows finding same subject threads in more than one forum. For example, typing same keywords that will appear in each title.

3.) A thread by user search option that allows a listing of threads started by specific users. For example, type in a user's name and get a compilation listing of all their threads by title and which forum(s) they are in.

Maybe you have some ideas on this as well.
