 Just a suggestion - for those who answer questions
First I'd like to say, sorry this topic really shouldn't be in this forum since its not a question or anything.

I have a small suggestion to all members who are kind enough to answer questions to newbies.

Instead of answering the question, search it and when you find the best answer, quote it for them and link to that page for them and tell the user about the search button. It'd save them time if they knew about the search button, it'd also save the staff time.

In short,
If Fuzzy asked, "How do I bookmark?"
I would go use the search button and search, 'How to bookmark"
I'd shift through the post until I find one I like, I quote it for Fuzzy and leave a link to the topic were I found the answer. Then I'd leave a reminder to use the search button and check the CAQ

Example,

Next to the drop down list where you can pick what farm you want to view there is a little star. Its to the right of the list. If you click it you have added that member to your favorites.

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11998
Next time Fuzzy, please use the search button and check the CAQ You'll be able to find your answer a lot faster then we'd be able to answer it for you.


Remember;
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."


sorry to Blue and Fuzzy but you guys were the first users that popped into my head.
