When members register they are supposed to read, understand and follow the rules of the board. This includes doing a search before creating a new thread.
Now, it's not always easy to find a thread, I know. That's why I am asking you to think about your thread titles, that will allow everyone to find them, reply to them, or find them in the future.
[INDENT]"Do you think....?"
"Can you give me your opinion...?"
"I found this today..."
"This is awesome!!"
"Can you help me?"
[/INDENT]are BAD titles. Try being more specific:
[INDENT]"Martin singing Sister of Night"
"Peace live version"
"New interview on Rolling Stone magazine"
"Help me with the message board people!"
"Petition for Ghost to be released as single"
[/INDENT]Note, the use of nouns, titles and/or names increases the chances for your thread to be found.
Try using the search feature on the top of every forum page. It's easy:
1. Select Advanced search options.
2. Enter your key word (more than 3 characters) and select Search Titles Only. Choose your key word wisely, use a noun, a name, a title.
That's it. If you remember the exact phrase or words, then you'll do fine with the "Search Entire Posts" option.
It's ok if you want to be a thread starter, but do a search first. There are so many threads that chances are, the topic you want to talk about has already been covered. Thanks.
