Some of us have lives outside of this board and may not notice. It happens. Who gives a fuck?!

lots of people.

just use the search button. it takes less time than starting a new thread, and your questions might already be answered.

anyone who posts regularly cares. it's annoying to try and discuss something in two threads at once.

personally I don't care but that is only because I tried to use the search thread once and had no luck. Although I do not start many threads so I just don't care either way.

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I agree with Frozen Pilgrim.

Also, T-REV will henceforth be refered to as Chad.

If somebody gets offended by a repeat thread on a fucking forum, they might need to get a life.

nobody gets "offended". it's just detrimental to the function of the board. it's a forum, not a chat room- people come here for answers, and the more (near) duplicate threads there are, the harder it becomes for lurkers (not regulars) to find what they're looking for.

I've typed in the names of threads word for word into search and occasionally the actual thread won't even be in the top five or ten hits

What I'm saying is, for those people who are unfamiliar to the board and looking for a thread on a certain subject, it can be harder for them to find the thread that will have the best information for them

the trick is searching in thread TITLES, not in the body of posts. advanced search.

I'm referring to what happens within that search as well. Not especially accurate if you don't know what you're looking for

i guess where i am wishy washy on this ..... if you post a thread on the same page only titled different, that is lame ... if you want to talk about , i dont know pink floyd, and you went thru a few pages, then a new thread is ok ....i know of times when there were like three threads on the first page of this board and someone posts another one ... i avoid creating new threads, but i might have made 20 or so in the last couple of years .. x****

search seems to require exact word matches. when I searched for 'dream' I couldn't find the thread titled 'dreams'. fucking retarded. but once you realize that you can make it work.

Just use the search button. Or at least make sure that the thread you want to make isn't already on the first page.
