Sorry. Didn't know how new you were. Yea, there are a good number of things around this house that are just broken. You are going to have to live with it.

Use google to do a site search.

If you've already used the DDO search bar once, then it won't work again until you visit the forums main page or DDO main page. For some reason, that's the only way to "refresh" and reuse the search bar. If you do that though, it'll work just fine.

Kinda stinks that you have to visit either the DDO main page or Forum main page to reset the search feature, but it's at-least a temporary solution until we can get that bug fixed.

Because it's the debate.org search bar.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

The search bar doesn't work in general, just don't bother with it.
