I've been a junkie for a long time and a forum user for a fair length of time. I didn't even know we *had* a search tool until JP (Thank You, JP) pointed it out to me. I saw in another post (Andrews) that Scott asked why people weren't using it:
Others seemed to reply they didn't know we had it either. I'd suggest you move it to the upper left somewhere. That's where most sites put it if they have one. I know that's where I go to look for one. Definitely don't bury it in the lower right hand corner. It's very counter intuitive to look down there.
