I was just curius, I know there are some that search and reply "My search didn't resolve anything", or something to that degree. Makes me wonder if they are aware of the fields "Forum or Category to search" and "Date Range". Perhaps a small tweak to have both default to "All Forums" and "All Posts" respectivly? I would think it would be a small tweak in the template file, and would still preserve the user base from any harm or unnecessary loss of data.

[P.S. That wasn't a specific reply to you ctrl, just your name was convenient]
