I love this forum for so many reasons. Yesterday night I typed Celibidache on the search section to read about the Maestro, the pros, the cons, etc.
(edit: that actually led to no problem, but I don’t remember what I typed that was totally frustrating).
This forum is a gold mine for classical music aficionados.
But the Game threads completely clog up that fonction. We end up having to skip innumerable amount of pages that contain the relevant word on those “game threads” where absolutely nothing can be learned.
Would it be possible to declassify the game threads from any search fonction ?
It’s exhausting and counterproductive for an otherwise blissful forum.

Thank you,
Bernamej

Edit: Celibidache is the worse example, as explained under.

I didn't check the search function on TC, but I did search for Celibidache in Google. When I simply used:

Celibidache site:talkclassical.com

I did find a small number of threads in the polls forum. When I used:

Celibidache -polls site:talkclassical.com

I found none. Perhaps that would be a good solution for you to check for whatever you wish on TC (i.e. including -polls in the search line).

I don't know what you typed in, but simply typing Celibidache in the TC "search community" field yields no game threads at all at least for the first 40 responses. That's not surprising either because most of the games are about compositions, and not about conductors.

Omg sir !!!! Ok I gave a bad example, incredible. You’re missing the point.
I don’t remember what I typed, Brahms, Schumann, Bruckner...I just don’t remember but I remember going over endless GAME pages where I knew there was absolutely NOTHING to read about.

I don’t care about Celibidache per se ! I gave a bad example. Try Schumann or Brahms and then let me know.

I appreciate your responses but it’s a shame i gave such a bad example because my point still remains ! I just gave a very bad example because of my faulty memory.

Thank you very much !!!
If you really want to thank me, go to your first post #1 and click on the three "dots" at the top right of the post.

Click on "Edit"

At the top of your post is the title - You'll see the word "Title" with a red asterisk next to it.

Click on the title section and swipe your mouse to the left to delete your original title.

Replace it with - "How do I narrow down my search results?"

And then click on "Save"
