This is version 1.0 of the ASK ATS engine. Future improvements will include forum-specific searches, the ability to refine your searches based on the date a topic was authored, the date of a topic's last reply, number of flags, number of replies, and even specific members who replied to a topic.
Part of that problem isn't with the search function. Sometimes posters will use a completely inappropriate thread title, with little or no relevance to the subject of the thread, like "Hey ATSers I'll bet you didn't know this...", now how is that going to help a search engine find the topic? That's not a search engine problem, it's a problem with inappropriate thread titles. I see numerous duplicates with problems related to that where I'm not surprised it didn't show up in a search.

Often there are multiple threads on the same subject. If the post date shows in New Threads - - - I can easily choose the first poster - - and not have to get redirected to the original post.
