Not me, after 9000 something posts, I've never had a repeat question...



Nah, I don't mind em though. If it's a constant repeat I'll try to lead the questioner to both the Search button and a similar post. If that doesn't help, I'll usually answer the question, and point to a resource to get the information I've provided (if one exists, easily).

Cool

It doesn't bother me at all. I just use the copy and paste technique

I'm also starting to write a FAQ to point people to.

Master C,

As you might can tell, I'm going through all the old posts and answering the ones I can. I would like to see more people do the same.

Yeah, that's how I do it, the button at the top of each sub forum is the easiest way I've found (search for 0 replies).

Thanks for doing that, it's great to get those questions answered for future people as well.



Cool

I have a few ideas to make the posts with 0 threads a little more prominent. Stay tuned.
