Default I'm sorry for not using the search function!!

Just this morning I've read through about 4 or 5 threads where new members are asking questions that have been asked 1000 times on here. I just want to apologize if I was that guy when I first came around. The search function is your friend!!!

The Search Function can also be a quagmire
Several times i have searched through it & i didn't come up with the correct phrase
Then i refer to Google & on many occasions the results point right back to the RamforumZ for the answer

Agree GT, the search function here is good but sometimes it hasn't worked for me. If I go to google with same question I get a better search result with the top matches heading me right back here!!

I use my phone 99% of the time to get on here and i can not use the search function. So I will usually Google it first and as GT and Shawn said... The Z is usually the top search result. If I don't find anything through Google I will than start a thread.

The search function seems rarely used. It seems to pay off more often that not. We are a society of people that want quick answers and don't want to wait.

It doesn't help much that if someone has a headlight problem and they start a thread...I hate my stupid truck.

The search function never works for me. I don't know if you need to be super specific or what... But I'll search for "done to ram today" to get that thread, and it NEVER ever appears in pages and pages of threads. It's useless to me. I end up subscribing and then looking at my subscribed list to find previous threads... But that doesn't help if I am looking for something I've not subbed to before.

You hit the nail right on the head Warlock III. I've seen allot of thread titles that had nothing to do with what the person was even talking about. That's why me and allot of other people just start a new thread to get the latest information and even more people to see it to help a situation with there Ram.

A lot of times if I see a thread and the member has solved their problem I post what the problem was ("96/2nd gen won't start") I rep them and post the title and "solved" in the title.

Have yet to figure out if it helps when using the search function and see "solved" after it. I figure sooner or later I'll see it.
