It's possible that the forum was busy when those questions got posted and they got buried under a bunch of new postings... it happens sometimes...

Make a comment on your original post with the questions so it will re-appear on the 'recent threads' area. Hopefully that will help!

what this forum needs is a WIKI.. so people like yourself looking for bus advice.. esp if its common like drivetrain, brands, years, lengths, etc have an easy place to find it.. the search on this forum is crap.. and most dont know about google site search and eventhat isnt great

Ya...I still don't understand why this forum does not have a decent "site search". It's as common elsewhere as fleas on feral cats.

SilentReprieve,

I'm not one to comment on bus makes/models as I know nothing about them. For topics that I know something about, I am much quicker to reply when the questions are clear (to include reasonable grammar, punctuation, capitalization), not something that the poster could easily find with a simple search, and I have some idea to whom I am speaking (this means a signature with a name - maybe more).

The search thing has me a bit confused as there is a search option up in the toolbar. It is the typical vBulletin search and it seems to work ok for me (here as well as other vBulletin forums). Of course, I don't know what results it is NOT returning so perhaps it really isn't any good. ??? I dunno...

Tango may have been a little sarcastic

The site now has a very good, Google Search feature. It always did have that feature if you know how to search Goole though, but the site just made that easier.

There are times when I give the same answer, time and time again ... and there are others where I ignore posts where the OP would have found the answer quickly and easily using the site search.

The "recent" column on this site moves very fast. It's also quite possible that the OP scrolled away.
