There was a new scandal everyday around the time of the guarantee for months and each thing was worse than the next

hmmmm… I can’t picture it working. It’s kind of natural that threads wander off into cul-de-sacs and die. It’s inevitable. If the problem is that it’s difficult to retrieve information, could a different search function solve that problem?
What about encouraging ‘Subject Tags’ for important or specific posts?
or an FAQs type sticky with links to relevant posts for key topics
Stickied while we think about it.
The search function is pretty sophisticated if you go into the full search.
A thread of “key posts” might be the thing, where each post is a “key post on x topic”
That way the search function could be limited to searching the post subject and it would show up.
THE Key Thread
askaboutmoney.com and the thread is from the good old days of 2006

I like this idea. The way the site is set up works nicely for long term posters who have at least scanned at some point most of what’s on the site already and probably depend mainly on the latest posts page. But for new users and especially those who don’t intend to become active pinsters and are just looking for some general advice on property or opinions on a particular WIW.
I feel like I want to tell them to read National Debt, End game in Europe and Long Term Value of Irish property… So maybe even having a link for ‘thinking of buying and looking for advice - here are some topics you might find useful’ link?
Sweet mother o’jiminy!!! You need to read this thread again BBJ!!!
on improving the site;
You see a lot of +1s out there, but rarely more than one person doing it for a particular comment. Might be good if there was a +1 button, and displayed at each comment there was the number of times it has bee '+1’ed (and a link to see a list of who they were). This might help to give a sense of consensus as threads reach their natural conclusion.
There are a couple of people who’s comments i find worth reading. It’d be nice if there was some way of checking to see any new comments from those people when i log in.
