I really think the forums need a little spicing up. For instance, I hate having to search through the entire Lottery Systems forum to find something I know is there by the name of the original poster. I really find this irritating. If only I can search the Lottery Systems forum my life would be more simple.

    I voted that it's great the way it is.  I use the search function often and have no problem finding what I'm looking for.  Not sure I understand why you're having problems.

          That feature already exists, so I guess you should change your vote to "Its great the way it is".

          Click Search, then click the Username tab, then type the person's username, and select the forum to search under Options.  Then click Search.

          Or, you can search for specific content within a specific forum by clicking the Topics tab, entering the keywords to search for, then select the forum to search under Options.

          The Search page is really very powerful.  Try experimenting with the various options and you will find more than you knew existed.

           

          Check the State Lottery Report Card
          What grade did your lottery earn?

            To add to my previous post, the Daily Topics page is also very helpful when looking for a person's post in a forum that they made on a specific day.

            Click Daily Topics in the Forums menu, then select the day of the post in the calendar, then select the person's Username in the Filter drop-down box.

            Pretty simple, yet underutilized at times.

              A username search with a forum filter gives too many results when the user has made alot of posts.

              Example:

              At times it is helpful to do a Username Search with a Forum Filter and Specific Content.

              A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                  PartyIt's great, won $50 today, using the vtracs.  Searched a lot of missing numbers for Missouri.

                  Hopefully they will let some of them go, like, 498, 800, 227, 727.

                   

                  Good Luck to all Lottery Post Players.

                   

                  Keep up the good work @ Todd.  ^5

                      Spend $175.00 to win $50?  Are you kidding me? lmaooooooooooooooooooooooooo

                      I've lost my mind for the last few months, but, I'll get it back. lol

                      I played, 512 yesterday , Midday, didn't play it evening, it dropped straight.  5-1-2 hadn't dropped since last year in December.

                      I did a search, found it was due in that exact order, 512, because, the last time it dropped, it fell, 215.

                      So, I think I'll stick to my theories and quick picks.

                      Good Luck,

                          Good Luck,

                          Netting $50 means $50 profit.  That means you would win $225 after wagering $175.

                          I'm not saying whether $50 profit is good or bad (that's your opinion), but I think you have misinterpreted the statement to mean that you would only win a total of $50 on a $175 wager.
