    A How to Guide to finding posts

    For those that can't figure it out.

    Here's a quick little DIY on how to find posts.

    Also a reason the Location Tags exist in RPs.




    Step 1: Go to thread
    Step 2: Click "Search Thread"
    Step 3: Click "Advanced Search"
    Step 4: Type in Keyword(s) which should be a Location Tag. (i.e. Gensokyo or London or Sahara Desert) into the box labeled "Keyword(s)"

    Optional:
    Step 5: Scroll down to Additional Options.
    Step 6: Change the second drop down in the category of "Find Posts" to "and Older"
    Step 7: Change the second drop down of "Sort Results by" to "In Ascending Order"

    Step 8: Click "Search Now" in the "Additional Options"
    Step 9: Profit.

    Notes: You'll have to jump pages in order to find the true end. just keep clicking the last page shown until you don't see a progression arrow.
    Also pay attention to the dates of posts. Sometimes a location tag won't be consistently used so sometimes alternatives are needed. i.e. Instead of Gensokyo, Banished Library. Instead of London, Prometheus Labs. Etc Etc.

    Stickied because people need to do this more often. I hope this means that people will search for posts themselves more.
