Forum Post: Searching and Indexing this Forum

Can the Public Forum moderators please add a search function or, better yet, a system for indexing, tagging, and/or filtering posts and comments. The forum is just too big to read and make sense of what people are trying to say. Also it would be nice to filter out all the nonconstructive comments, insults, name calling, and hate speech other than keeping track of it.

http://www.themultitude.org/forum This was created as the new forum due to trolls and the usage here becoming out of control and disorganized. Check it out.

Just use Google. Type "site:occupywallst.org anything" to search for "anything" on occupywallst.org. Success on the Internet is in your own hands.

Or use the URL that somebody set up that basically does the same thing.

Hey thanks! This is a good start. Now how about an index to classify the posts by theme or subject matter?

I am thinking about starting a structured Wiki to see if OWS sympathizers can organize their ideas on the fundamental problems, impacts, and possible solutions for change. I am not the side that believes it is way to early in the process to articulate "demands" as a "movement", but building an understanding of peoples concerns and ideas is the foundation of democracy and the first step in building a consensus or at least a majority for positive economic and political change.

Well, like I said, on the Internet, it's in your hands.

I'm personally maintaining a crackpot index, and an index of creative rationalizations for not seeking jobs. Anybody can do it. You can too. Choose your own important topics, of course...

I love it. How did you find these quotes?

Most of them came from conversations that I was involved in, and so I'm using Tumblr to keep scrap books of some of my favorites. Tumblr is great for stuff like that.
