    I\'m tired of the \"Do a Search\" crap..

    Do you guys remember when you first signed on here.. Did you want to just go in and do a search. And not post at all. Or did you want to go in and ask a quistion and meet people. And start BS'N with them. What fun is it to just sit there and search a site.. Yes you can do a search and find almost all your quistions answered.. But what fun is that. If you don't want to answer then don't.. But give people a break... Just my .02 /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I couldn't agree with you more....Everytime i hear the phrase "Do a search" all i do is think of the asshats over at pirate....I do not want to see ck5 turn into that kind of attitude.

    Hell yes...

    Although I usually do a search if I want to know something that I know has been covered... just cuz it's faster than posting and waiting around hitting the refresh button waiting for someone to notice that I posted something /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Dan, it's what I've said several times before, just dont respond if your going to hit someone with a "SEARCH" response...Let someone who won't bark at the newbie answer in a way that will let them know how to use the site, instead of running them off.... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Nail stricken quite correctly on the head!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Ive never asked a question here and been told to "do a search" but I do disagree with that so called answer. I mean what if its a new would be member that asked a question and he/she gets an answer like that..... Id probably go to pirates site. Just give an honest answer or dont answer at all /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Re: I\'m tired of the \"Do a Search\" crap..

    Gotta agree with ya here... most of the time I see the "fill out your profile" and the "if you do a search you may find a better answer faster" on first time posters.

    Hell, it was many a post before I figured out that I even could fill out my profile and many many more before I actually read the part in the for sale/wanted/PNW forums that tells me why you cant post as a bluebie...

    I definitely think the search is a great way to find info, but 99% of the time, I ask anyway. Because you never know... sometimes the truth changes.

    Like when your wife asks where your going with your buddy you tell her the truth, to look at a parts truck... but then the truth changes and you end up drunk, at a strip club down $700.00 to a blonde named Cheyenne on a game of "who's tits are real".

    Re: I\'m tired of the \"Do a Search\" crap..

    In this thread maybe I did do something wrong. I read the first 3 posts... formed an opinion... and posted my reply. But MAYBE having several replies saying the same thing just reinforce the strong points.

    The number of replies in the same post, to the same post, directly corresponds to how much alcohol was consumed prior to posting.

    Damn, that single sentence took me entirely too long to write. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Now why couldnt we have these kinds of responses instead of all the hoopla when Paul made a post about this exact subject? /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thanks for bringing it up again Dan. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I agree with you and I hope that the do a search thing changes or at least tones down. Mr. "I luv pizza" brought up a good point in the previous post. What happens when you "do a search" instead of just asking your question .... you find a post someone made about the subject you are looking for but when you read the replies to the question all you find are "do a search" answers? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Geez.. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif If you had done a search before you posted this, you would have seen this has already been covered /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif















    just kidding /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Actuually, I fully agree. Being a sorta-newbie, took awhile before I decided to join this site. The reason I joined this site was people were Polite, not Rude compared to other boards and it also looked like people could joke around and no one took it too serious. Theres alot of info on the board, takes time to figure out how to find it and yes, posting to get to know the people here is a great way to learn more about the site. I do Searches and watch PBB, but I usually dont post because of some of the $hit I see that gets thrown back at posters. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
