Title: WHY CAN'T PEOPLE JUST SEARCH????????
Post by: JEWDA on November 14, 2012, 03:38:44 PM
So to all of you who are busy looking at other blogs a whole day and then come here and BEFORE EVEN SEARCHING start a new topic, what do you have to say for yourself??

Some times even 4 or 5 people start a thread about the same topic. It's VERY annoying. Please stop it now.

Have something to say for yourself? Hit the comments!

He's upset. I agree people keep asking, posting, and starting new threads about the same thing. How many times do we need discuss "if apply for the freedom now will I get into the exclusives program". I must have saw that question over 20 Xs

In all fairness to the new users, the search box is really hidden on the page. It's almost hidden on the top left in really small font and with no color to it. It is really easy to miss.

If DDF had a feature that you can tag someone when starting a new thread, I would do it and tag Jewda

I think this thread was created so people can ask questions that was asked 20 times before...and not get flamed.

Maybe new users should only post in there or not able to start a new thread...until they have a min amount of posts...(and not able to +1 to get there)

Oh you mean in small 8 bit font on top of everything else? Because that is even less intuitive to look there.

You ever receive messages and want to read them...but how?  "my messages" is soooo small...or ever wana search for members?  you get my drift...
And there another search button on top right...so if you miss the one on top left...you always got the one on top right   :)

That's what happens when you try to multitask. The first post should say top right. I'll edit it now. but the pint stands, in both instances it is not really a very visible search button. Which is fine, if it's not meant to be a really integral part of the site. But if you have people like Jewda going crazy about people not doing more searches, I suggest making it much more visible and prominent on the page.

I think honestly searching is what the site a all about bec. Why should anyone really ever start a new thread unless its current events but most of the time something's along the lines was discussed before hamd

I hear ya..but I dont think its so bad

I dont think the problem is finding the search button...I think its that people are too lazy to use it

Okay, enough of all of this nonsensical talk. Stop wasting my time, I have an important question to ask that I can't seem to find a thread for: if I sign up for the Freedom card now, can I still get the old Exclusives program??!!

I think we need a poll on who searches the least. I have a real shot at winning that one.
