Make Scratch Search Engine more accurate results and add forums and users to search engine

When I search something it ended up with not a good results here:

So I was thinking that we make scratch search engine more accurate results so it can end up as a good results, I was also thinking adding “Forums and Users”
The highlighted one wasn't what I'm looking for

It wasn't duplicate I was just asking for improvement and keeping new scratch features, not deleting new scratch features

I know, why scratch search engine don't sort it by relavence?

That's not a duplicate. This one simply asks for improvement, that one asks for deletion.

Yeah, I love how Scratch Team overlooks that it searches for most popular. I thought Scratch Team wasn't biased and want all Scratchers to have a chance.

I used to have a signature. Now I have no signature. I have a pignature.

Idk, it's probably WIP

I wouldn't go to a project that seems unfinished and ask why the Scratch cat is still showing though

Support. It shows the results for each word in your search. You also can't even search for forums and users. Even worse:

If it was a duplicate, then then you could have just searched and see if a topic already exists for it with the old one, were you can find forums. But now, because you can't search for forums, you can't make sure you're not going to post a duplicate!

Make Scratch Search Engine more accurate results and add forums and users to search engine

I tried searching some of my more popular projects with the exact title and they don't show up at all (though some of the remixes were in it). While I appreciate that the ST is making an effort to showcase less-known projects, this is a hindrance for people trying to find one specific project.

Support.

EDIT: On another note, I really like how everyone hated that we had to keep Google Search after Hour of Code a couple years ago, and now we finally got rid of it, everyone's calling for it to come back The community's changed XD

Because people don't realize how much they heavily depend on stuff until they experience it

Support. The new explore/search place could've been good if they added these options in.
Whoops! I accidentally commented on my MAP account lol.
