Hi all

Is there a way to search the threads on the "site features" page?

My search would have been to answer the following:

what does it mean when a user has 10,465 "neurons"?

Neurons are points earned through activities on our site or app, such as playing games and reading articles.

Hi James.

Welcome to the forum!

I find the search feature a little lacking (compared to some sites) - one 'tip' I've been given in the past is to search using a normal search-engine (Google or Bing or whatever) for "The Free Dictionary site points neurons" or something like that (you sometimes have to be imaginative to get what you want without coming up with five billion useless answers). d'oh!
Note that if you search "The free dictionary neurons", you only see definitions of 'neuron' and related words - you have to choose a phrase which is not defined. Eh?

This page may help.

There are lots more here.

You can use Google to search for relevant pages from specific sites only by using the format seen here: (just change the search word(s) to something relevant to what you're looking for).
