The Bungie.net[url]/Search[/url] page is great for finding the most recent posts made by a user (Forums - Author). The other fields (News, Games, Support, Forums - All) don't always give you the results that you are looking for. Updating this feature would be beneficial for Bungie.net members and this is how I would do it. Would these ideas listed below encourage you to search more? Please feel free to share your input on the topic. Thank you. Bungie.net Search 2.0 would have four sections for each field (search, sort by, sort order, filters). Search is where you type what you are looking for. Sort lets you choose how and what order you would like your results displayed. Filters let you restrict your search. The advanced section would be hidden by default. This is what I came up with while brainstorming. I'm not expecting all of this to be implemented; it's just food for thought.

This game finder could have a lot more options, but I care more about the forum search being enhanced.

[quote][b]SEARCH SUPPORT:[/b][/quote] Bungie.net doesn't have a huge guide or support section. If they were to include FAQs for Bungie.net and their games, I would consider creating a search for support.
