    One thing that I think everyone needs to remember. You don't need to answer the posts if you think the questions are stupid or have been answered many times before.

    Just move on to the next post and forget it. Flaming people just gets the forum a bad reputation for being unfriendly.

    Wrong. Your title is "newbie" until you get to a certain number of posts. You are a NOOB as long as you don't know anything.

    When I find a new forum, I typically spend a month or so going through old posts trying to find every peice of information I can so I can ask intelligent questions. I have been a member of a ford bronco forum for about 8 months now, and, like most of you, I had no idea what a TTB was or what it stood for. and are the NOOBs best friend, and now I know what a TTB is--along with various other things about broncos that a "normal" person wouldnt know about. I can ask intelligent questions there, because I spent the time to learn the lingo.

    Oh, and over there, you post count can get randomly reset so people arent so preoccupied with post counts.

    I kidna think that if you post a elementary question due to not searching first you should get flamed.

    I came to this board an ubber noob. I know a hell of a lot about computers, but ddint know jack squat about car's electrical systems and stereos. When i started this project I came to this board and ran up and down the FAQ's and noob sections.

    Only questions I asked were basicly "I think i do this this and this and connect this here here and there...is that right?"
    and for the most part the answers were yes...cause i did my research. Now I feel I can call myself a ROOKIE ^^

    Reminds me of customers at my job *fast food* Why in the hell are they asking me what side items we have...for ****s sake! the god damn menu is right in front of you retard!! ....well..thats what I wana say at least, but I kinda wanna keep my job.

    newbiee wieghing in...

    yes I'm new but I think there is a point be missed. Even though i do a search and find a lot of info on a topic, i also want to post using my specifics to confirm the info i have found.
    speaking for only myself, i research first then post with a similar question involving the specifics of my project to confirm what i have found.

    many guys have learned the hard way how to do things, i would prefer to avoid that so i sometimes ask a similar question.

    I can agree with that. A question like, "I've read the posts about hooking up my Carpc to my stereo but I still don't understand. I can eliminate the head unit by just installing an amp? If so, I can't figure out how to hook it up to my MZA-2500-Shizzgoogle amp and 42 door speakers. Can someone give me some more information on it?"

    I think that's more kindly looked on than a question like "How do I hook up my carputer to my speakers?" Followed three hour later by a "bump" or "so no on e has an answer?" post.

    To me there is a difference between the question that someone should just bang out the one-word answer to and the question that requires a few hours of research to really grasp all the options. Example:

    Q. Is it possible to connect the zorg-level output of the Rotunder XV200R (with GS option) to the catalytic analyzer amplifierification devicifiation equalizer?
    A. Yes.

    Example of search:
    Q. How do I power a computer in my car?
    A. SEARCH!

    See the difference? Sometimes you want to tell them to search for example 1, but like the newbs have said, all we'll have is a forum of threads that say to search. Just bang out the answer if you know it and its a quick answer.

    Id say make the thread title more descriptive so that people can tell what you need answered. I mean "another newbie power question" prolly isnt gonna get a lot of response. And you will most likely get flamed and told to search. And dont be looking to get spoon fed either. I actually like doing research and therefore would just like people to send me to one of their favorite sites that covers my question. Not all of us have the same sites bookmarked. And with the wealth of pure useless **** you find on GOOGLE its a lot easier for someone on here to send you to a good place to conduct your research. How hard could it be to post a link rather than post those stupid search icons? That may help a newbie learn to stand on his own feet a little more.

    Im a newbie and i still get tired of the threads that ask one question and so they ask, and then...and then...and then...and then...and then. Those little bastards should get flamed...and if possible kicked in the balls for wanting someone to spoon them. I dont think ive ever done this but if i have or do in the future i will try and kick myself in the balls.
