    Regarding searching by "File Name" ...I've thought that having to add .zip to any name is redundant since all the files are .zip to begin with.

    For example searching for Ged Slippermans utility notrees --- the user must use the term "notrees.zip" to find the file. Using only "notrees" will return nothing. How about dropping the need to add ".zip"?

    Expanding the search by File Name capabilities would be nice...entering only the word trees would bring up scenery files, Ged's Utility for OR notrees.zip and who knows what else.

    In the Advanced Search you can type the exact phrase as "New Haven" or "New York" and get results.

    I'm guessing it's not working in the general search because common words are excluded. Looking directly on the database, the word "new" shows up over 3900 times in various file descriptors. It's definitely worth looking at changing, though.

    The file library search engine doesn't like the word "new" typed in. I always get a "No Search Results" when that happens. Kinda annoying when searching for New Haven or New York Central items.

    Really doesn't detract from the site.

    I get it if I log in from my Kindle. Comes up every time. Probably because Cloudfare sees it as a login form a different device. It is annoying but I understand why it's there. I will say this is the only website that does it out all the sites I use. As long as the stupid lets play 20 questions crap doesn't return every time we login I can deal.

    A like or helpful button for posts would be great and useful for reducing one liner "thank you" style responses.

    Yes, that is Cloudflare doing the checks... they are not going along for the move at this point. It's a little bit of a risk in that they do provide DDOS attack protection, and it's a free way to get a SSL certificate. But I really hate what it does to the experience.

    I don't have any such problem, whether I've previously logged out or not! Maybe it's a price you have to pay for not being a paid member!!

    Cheers,

    started a topic Website Wish List 2023

    Website Wish List 2023

    When the server move is complete, there's going to be an opportunity to update some of the forum software and features.

    Since we have a couple wish lists active elsewhere, what would be improvements that you'd like to see on Trainsim.com??
