    Hello all, please take a moment to learn about Double Thread Syndrome (DTS). DTS is a widespread forum illness that results in content being posted more than once, it's been attacking message boards for as long as they've existed. 100.1% of people on the internet will experience the effects of DTS. Many have even had some form of DTS themselves at some point. It's no shame, it happens. Thankfully we have a treatment!

    Introducing the Search Box:

    Search Box

    [​IMG]

    It's located at the top right of the forum. Just click enter what you wanna search into "Search...". We HIGHLY advise you use this awesome feature and here are some tips for using it.

    First, use Advanced Search

    [​IMG]

    This will help narrow down what your looking for. On the Advanced Search page it also helps to search just threads and posts, select that here:

    [​IMG]

    To narrow it down further it helps to select a specific section if you know that's where what you are looking for should be, like a MOBA:

    [​IMG]

    If you want to search "MOBA" you would select the MOBA section on that list.

    Next is Terms and probably the most important part of searching. First I HIGHLY recommend using "Search Titles Only".

    [​IMG]

    This will help narrow down the results significantly and help quickly find if the topic already exists. As for the terms, less can be more!

    For example if you want to find Warwick vs Lee Sin? just type Warwick, Warwick vs Lee Sin? can work but I've found more words can add to the results. I recommend just using one defining word like in our example Warwick and then use your browsers search (ctrl + F) on the results page to look for "Lee Sin".

    An example of doing this in Chrome:

    [​IMG]

    Regardless of using your Browsers Search or not, less can still be more. Use defining words instead of full sentences, avoid broad words like League of Legends. If you want the League of Legends Quiz, then search for quiz in the MOBA section. Quiz is used a lot less than League of Legends so it'll find a lot less topics. Try a few different combinations of words especially if you have a lot of results, it might cut it down significantly.

    Overall we know search isn't perfect but we do believe it can really help fight DTS. Please consider using it before creating a new thread. Help us put an end to DTS. :)

    Also want to add, please use the report button if you see a double thread or spam. Click that little red triangle in the top right corner of the post.
