Maybe we need an additional forum or two or three.

"Idiotic Ricer Mods"

"I don't want to search, but will you help me anyway"

"Newby Bash"

The moderators can move the post right over when they find a post or thread that fits.


In defense of those that can't seem to find help with a search, our search engine does sometimes seem to be a bit hard to use. I have not been able to find things on a search until I went back and reviewed earlier posts. This is not a complaint, but just a statement of fact. Overall this is an excellent community and I'm greatful for those that make it possible.

Well said Stazi!

Right on Scott(getsum111)!

If these newbs would do a simple search they would see that everything they need to know has already been posted. I've done many things to my ride without a single post, thanks to the how-to's and other info that is posted here.

There is nothing wrong with doing a search, not understanding something and THEN posting a question. If you don't understand something ASK, but search first.

I think just about everyone here will help a newb if they say they searched before posting.

The moral of the story...search first, ask questions later.

This is true...terminology and the way that the search function returns results can make finding some info a little tricky. This isn't to excuse the lazy, but I'm a longtime poster and I still can have trouble finding the info I need.

But I *love* the idea of an "Don't Wanna Search" forum that mods can kick threads to.

I can understand some newbish type question when it comes to technical things.

This thread took the cake though.

There has been an out burst of ridiculous newbie questions, for example:

I agree. If someone posted, "I searched but can't seem to find..", I think more CEGers would step in with assistance. As for the "ricer mod" questions......
