I tried unsuccesfully to identify threads related to a subject under the Search icon and . Is there an explanation on how to do this?

Is there a maximum amount of threads that a person can create?

:)

Can you give an example of what you are trying to search? There are a lot of tools under "Advanced Search" that you can use to narrow your hits down.

Lets say "Wozniackis racket" which apparently I a thread I repeated. Do I write this phrase in Advanced Search?

AND.. Is there a limit to the NEW THREADS one can create?

You might want to try using racquet instead of "racket"

There is no thread creation limit.

If you know the name of the thread change the keyword search box from "search entire posts" to "search titles only"

Typing in Wozniaki, Wozniakis or Wozniaki's will give different results.
If by any chance the thread title is "Wozniaki's Raquet" instead of "Wozniakis Raquet" you woun't get the right search results.

You can also search by the author if you know who created the thread.

unless you're looking for a specific thread, advanced search is (generally) not needed, although you can narrow down the results as posters above have mentioned.

You can also use google, which is pretty darn good:
search term here site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com

Ex:

Wozniacki Racquet racket site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com

Edit: No limit on # new thread creation, but if you create too many and it starts really ******* people off, the admins and I will probably clean up and/or make a mental note. There IS a spam rule.

Where do I find the Spam rule, just to have it clear?
