Ok, now here i am being irritated at a repeat, repeat, repeat question. The very thing i have cussed others for. Well I think this forum can set a precedent. I don't think we need to send anymore traffic Google's way but how about a sticky that says, "Before You Ask, Have You Googled It?"
I mean there is certain knowledge that is dished out that is only held in the heads of the forum members but how many posts get answered by a member taking the time to Google something where the original poster was to lazy or "didn't know about it."
Holy Cow! How many people come on here asking about a certain bike, what is it worth etc. What do most people replying do? Go to Google and type it in then create a link. Maybe bike forums can set a precedent to teach the world of forum users to Google before they ask. All together now.........
(turn up your speakers)
How about a search box on the new thread template with the "Before You Ask, Have You Googled It?" tag line?
Maybe we can just put it at the top with the name of these forums? Like www.bikeforums(haveyougoogledityet).com?
