Lightbulb [GE Suggustion] ---------- Item Finder

Hi Everyone!!

I recently joined the "Big GE"! I have been in there for at least 1 week tops. Let me tell ya, its a complete blast! One thing I noticed is it is huge.

So, my suggustion:

Since many of us are looking for a "specific" item in WW, it might be helpful to know what WI Users have that item for trade. I think it would be nice to have an "Item Finder"
This would probably be located with "Section/Forum Tools". We simply type in the name of item, select catagory (PSI,PSF etc.) and off it goes, coming back with a list of threads/GE's that have that item in stock.
There could even be a reverse version. Example, Say you have the Love Monkey PSI. You type the info in, and it comes back with members looking for that item.

Now, I know this is probably a long shot to add to WI, but I think it would be something to add the the drawing board!

ah! i totally agree! Because the search thing isn't exactly useful like that... i've been looking for a Pegasus PSI and the majority of the search results i get back have *nothing* to do with anyone having one, or wanting one, or anything!

Great idea!

I have no idea how they could get that to work but I love the idea. It would especially helpful to find HTF items. The problems I see with it is it would need a complete rehaul of that section of the forum. I wonder if it can be done?

Yeah, it would be kinda hard! It would require constent updating, but who knows? Justin and Wendy might know something to solve the problems.

Well, you are in luck Look in the 'search' Bar, right under the Banner. Type in the name of the item and click the radial button to show posts, only. This is what I found when I typed in Blue and Yellow Grandfather Clock Good luck

If you REALLY want to narrow your search, Go to the advanced button underneath. It will bring the Forum up that you want to search, as well. That way you can narrow your search without getting a pile of stuff from the Collectorz Corner Category. If you know the name of the person who had the item, you can put that in the Field for 'User name.' I find this tool to be one of the most AWESOME ones in here. You just have to know how to use it. It doesn't like words that are only 4 letters long. And don't type in just the word Webkinz, it doesn't like 'common' words, either
