Hey cool people, Guess it is time for another thread by me! LMAO!!! I have a gripe and this is going to be of NO surprise to most because it involves frequent users to aD. I would hope that this thread reaches every person on this site, but I am sure it won't. There is a word here, that many people do NOT understand when it comes to finding information...that word is...the SEARCH button. Is it me, or have we become an online society of lazy people. Time and time, and more time again, I have seen posts that ask the SAME EXACT QUESTION!!! Um, is there an echo in on this site. Do people understand what the search button is for. It is NOT decorative, it is not something that makes a page look cool. It is something that is there for a benefit. I, and MANY other users have seen the same question asked. My personal favorite: What is the best P2P? Well, here is your answer: Do some research! Why is it SO difficult to put several key words in either aD's search box or in google? Are we to assume that you have to be a Senior Member or higher here in order to activate the search function on aD. Honestly people, it is not that hard. Google, has paved the way to look up information. Say for instance, you are looking for the best p2p program, have a look at see what I found: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=+best+p2p,+afterdawn&btnG=Search Wow, now that was REALLY hard. BTW, did you see what I typed in the search function? Notice what I typed in the search box in google? Let's try another one, hhhmmm, how about burning video games, specifically for the both xbox, you know what, hell I will do both: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=burning+xbox+games,+afterdawn&btnG=Search HOLY LORD CRAP!!! What did I just find on the VERY TOP of the google page. Shocking isn't it?! See people, to use the search button or search engine, you don't have to be part of some mystic society. It is available to everyone. When you ask question like, "Help!!! Can't back up Spanglish/RE2" or any other of the repeatitive questions that are asked, you are NOT going to get a most welcomed response. No offense, but when you ask a question like that, your question is NOT special because it was ALREADY asked and answered like WEEKS ago. Do a search for your movie...you will be surprised at how many other people have asked that same question. On TOP of that, there are COUNTLESS guides that members have taken the time to post. They didn't do this cause they were bored, they did it because it is to help YOU with the repeatitive questions. Now, on that note, I would like you to watch this video: http://www.starterupsteve.com/swf/posting.html Now, I am not directing this irritation to those of you who take the time and read the forum rules/ask questions that are worded correctly/do your research before you ask a question...no, this isn't directed towards you at all. This is directed towards those who seem to have no understand of the word "search." Even now, I can guarantee that someone is asking a repeatitive question as I speak. Oh well, guess they will learn. Even though I am a Senior Member, it doesn't mean anything. Title does NOT dictate knowledge. There are many senior members here, who were newbies before, but yet, knew that they could search for their answers, BEFORE asking a repeatitive question. Maybe, it is just me, or maybe everyone feels the same, but frankly, it is like a slap in the face, everytime the same question gets asked, and you know what the funny thing is...that same question that they are asking...has been answered, ON THE SAME FRIGGIN' PAGE AS WHERE THEY JUST STARTED A NEW THREAD!!!! Now COME on people! Is THIS even necessary. There are stickies for basic information located on the tops of the forums to help you better understand what you need to do. For example, I don't have a console system, but I guarantee you, that I could get a console, look at the sticky for how to do mod chips and be able to play burnt games, and not EVER have to ask an repeatitive question like: "HELP!!! just downloaded a game, what do I do?????" I'll tell you what you can do, shut off your computer, put it away in storage, because you are too lazy to look for the answers. I know that some of the members can agree that they hate when people ask a question they know they just could have searched for. People, using the search button, isn't rocket science, nor a special privilege, so use it to your advantage! Ok, so, now I am done ranting and raving. But I want to leave this to those of you who don't bother helping yourself and want your hand to be held every step of the way. Please use the search button, it is not a scary thing to use! You want to know why most people get rude responses from members...that is one of the MAIN reasons why! So, if I may ask politely, to all of you who need to have their hand held and can't do anything for yourself...you need to make [bold]google your best friend![/bold] Since you may not want to search for it yourself, here is the link: http://www.google.com/ and this one might be useful as well: http://forums.afterdawn.com/search/ Hope that helps and see yall in the forums! ;P BTW...I just thought of something...how DID they find the site AfterDawn in the first place? I guess they must have tv commercials playing around the clock in every country in the world!
