    Searchable Image Library ++
    As images are cached, they are automatically tagged with the keywords associated with the thread they appear in, and date time. Allowing for images to be searched on a keyword basis as well as a member.

    ie. i want to look for all images tagged with BC, Oct 2015

    Prediction: Searchable image library will spawn a bunch of forum specific memes.

    Love the new global search function!

    You gonna get a lot more thread-mining, especially from newer members digging for their areas of interest.

    Great job @Richard! (Might even post this twice!)
