Is there some feature of the site, or some unwritten rule of site usage, that can alleviate this? If so, please let me know and I'll be 100% on the side of roster posting.

Thanks!

I think he is saying that he searches for a player looking to find some information on him. But instead he just finds roster questions instead of information. :-? The only thing I can say to help is when your searching select a specific forum(most likely Baseball Leftovers or Injury and updates if your looking for info) If this isn't what your talking about then I'm just as confused as Lo :*)

Lofunzo had it correct. In the first post in this thread, suggestion #3 says to include in every post "Your entire roster - Even if it isn't quite applicable to your specific question, it might be indirectly related. For instance, maybe you can make a trade based on who you have on your bench. It won't hurt to include it."

Is there a way to search only on subjects? At least that way you'd mostly eliminate false positives. Of course, you'd also miss may relevant posts with subjects like "Who to trade?" (which I believe was addressed in another suggestion somewhere).

Thanks for the replies!

Dave.......I think that I finally know what you are talking about. I see 2 search options. 1 based on topic and text and the other based on text. Are you asking if you can just search on topic?? If so, I believe the answer is no but that is a good idea thaat I will mention to Menyak.

How does one put a link to a post that they made? I see them at the bottom of replies, often with help me out and then : http//etc.
I'm not that swift w/ computers yet or is there something on this site that enables links? Sorry if its a dumb question.

If you post something, there should be a URL in your browser. Just copy and paste it into a thread of your choice.
