    Standard netiquette dictates that the forum should be searched if you are a new user before you ask questions. If you wanted a phone number, would you run out into the street and ask everyone passing, or would you just check the phone book?

    Hell, most of the answers to these questions can be found by SIMPLY SCROLLING DOWN THE PAGE.

    Okay, I will agree with that, but what I don't understand iswhy everyone has to say somehting anytime it happens. Just leave it be abd the guy won't get any answers.

    Man.. You guys are absolutely right..
    Don't be mean to newbies..
    I was one before...
    But at least I put some effort in it and almost got all the answers by reading the member-pages

    The fact that you don't know how to solve your prolbem tells me that you didn't put enough effort in it to get these answers... and that's the reason I rant. Not for you being a newbie....
    It's just there on the web.. one has just got to search for it.. I have done this to, and if I can use the web, than anyone can.

    Try this...
    There's a newbie coming in.. never posted before.. but got his info out of the forum of membersites..
    If he has some difficult question.. he will get helped.. because he has a decent question.. not for being a newbie..

    And then.. the last.. but maybe the biggest reason for us ranting and raving about newbies to search.....

    If one now searches on something particular.. The results he gets aren't as good as they supposed to be.. Why ?? the board clutters up with messages about a paricular subject, but there's no info in these messages.. So.. the ones who do actually search take longer time to actually get the information they want..
    If we keep the board clean.. the search-option works much better..

    Like try to search your question.. hooking up an inverter to the battery of your car.. Will leave you with at least 40% of messages with these content.. Search.....

    Just my 002 cents.
