Search Title only added to search

I have a stinking suspicion most forum users never used advanced search. Many times when one is searching about so and so game or Best this or Best that or whatever it'll pull up tons of results obviously with default search since it's searching titles as well as content within the thread. I'm not suggesting changing default search to 'Search titles only' by default. Merely suggesting making it readily available rather than having to revert to advanced search.

Currently like this

Suggest change to this

Currently to get to title have to go to advanced search and change this parameter which I doubt many do.

Very nice. I like. And it's just an easy simple checkbox to add

totally agree with mrbass !

is the standard on most other forums - seeach titles is the default generally

also helpful because you get back maybe only a couple of results and not 400, due to the fact everyone has games in their signatures
