Default WWII threads?

I tried a couple of different searches but couldn't find anything on the WWII game. Could someone point me in the right direction please?

You might find better results searching on Google. For this I would do the following search: site:forums.sjgames.com wwii

The site:<URL> restricts the results to the named site. However, tags work well also... the problem is that not all posts get tagged well.

allintitle: is another useful search tag. By using it you restrict Google to searching just the page titles, and the forums set the page title to be the same as the thread title, meaning you'll only get threads which were intended to be about WWII instead of ones that just have a casual mention.

allintitle: site:forums.sjgames.com wwii

This brings up a lot of useful results.

One problem with searching by title is that WWII used to have it own section before they were merged with the general GURPS one. A lot of the WWII threads were not identified as such.

For reference, it appears the WWII forum was folded into the GURPS forum in early September 2009.
