Default Suggestion to improve this p2p forum.

While this is a great way to discuss out problems/solutions i would like to ask to make a small change in this forum.

Please make sub forums called chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3..... under the book title forum. Or if this seems a too much, another option could be to add threads for each chapter, so that a user does not end of reading thru tons of thread to find out whether his or her problem has been solved alrady.

This would make searching for a existing post very easy and organised.

Presently it is hard to find whether a problem/solution already existes or not.

PS: I actually found all problems solved here but after considerable searching and reading of a lot of threads.

Unfortunately, the forum software we use doesn't allow the sub-forum idea.
The idea of threads is an interesting work around. The difficulty would be that a large number of users don't even post in the right forum, getting them to post in the right thread would seem to be an even more impossible task.

This is a usability problem I want to solve, and I'm open to ideas on it, I'm just not sure that this suggestion would end up helping.

The author on chapter 7 has just finished a long relocation to another continent. He's aware of the messages here, and as soon as he gets a reliable internet connection there, he's going to answer.

As far as google site search vs our search, what's so crappy about ours? Some specifics would help if I wanted to suggest improvements or a change to our developer.
I know we did have a concern about using Google that google might not spider the site often enough for search to be current.
