Stoke On Trent

8 posts in this topic

A newbie from there posted yesterday, and in looking to give him a couple of pointers I was amazed to find only 8 reviews from Stoke in the data base. Am I missing something in my search?

Easier to select Town "starts with".... Stoke.

 

That way you pick up all the Reports.

 

Just done a test.... 313 Total reports for Stoke.

 

29 for past 12 Months.

This method of search has always been there. If you select "Exactly Matches", you are likely to get less hits, cos not everyone can spell town names, girls' names, etc properly.

 

I would recommend using "starts with" every time, esp for girls' names.

 

It has its drawbacks... e.g. for a search under Nottingham, if you select starts with "Nott", you will still get Notting Hill (London) FRs also come up.

pity you cant search by postcode, but going by AW people cant get that right. girls in Glasgow coming up in Gloucester searches for example.
