As the forum grows, we should add a bunch of standard capabilities for ease of use:

1. Searching forums
2. The ability to flag posts as spam, etc.
3. Find forum posts of a specific person.

All part of the plan...

I know you mean to but I really do have to add my vote for this.

On a search-related tangent I, for one, would love to have photosynth as a search provider for my browser's search bar. This can't be difficult, can it? Would someone enlighten me as to how to go about accomplishing this?

I am thinking primarily about it calling up the regular search results page, but when you get around to adding forum search I, for one, wouldn't mind something along the lines of the Zune Marketplace search results page. i.e. 57 Synths found, 14 forum topics found.

Hi Nathanael, which browser do you use? If you use Firefox this may be of interest to you-

The method is "GET", the action url is http://photosynth.net/Search.aspx and the search box is named "query"
