We do need a better search function for all of our sites. There was a
plan to use startpage,
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/6454.  And there was a
yacy search engine we were testing for only *.torproject.org, but it
didn't work so well. We're open to better search suggestions for a
custom *.torproject.org search.

It's easy to complain about lack of forum, harder to do something about
it.  A forum won't solve your search problem, as most of us will still
use the mailing lists.


Excuse me?! ". . . solve your search problem . . ." It's not *my* search problem, it's your search problem.

I'm not the one asking for help here, the thread starter is, that's person you should be addressing in terms of helping him/her search. And maybe you need to search a little more too, considering what you suggested seems at add to what Mike suggested.

You can hold tight to your milasting-list, and know that you're not helping people that need it the most (read: newbs) efficiently at all, as exemplified by the very existence of this thread. How many different asnwers have people given so far in this thread? By my count at least 3, and if a newb is reading this whom are they to believe?! A forum would solve that problem. But I digress, I'll let you get back to claiming this is *my* search problem . . .

And at least I have attempted to setup a forum for Tor, I even asked you where to put the server over a year ago. Please don't try to suggest I'm all hot air, pffft, far from it.
