Hey this message is for everbody with the intent to post a question. Either your new or been here before. When posting a question, try to search if your question has been asnwered in some way or another.

After coming to this site since January, I can't count how many times I have answered the same questions over and over again or seen the same one's.

I don't think most people know but there is a search option and I have tried it several times and quite frankly, it does a very good job at finding whatever.

So to help us all out, anyone who answers questions frequently or comes here quite often, take advantage and you might not need to post a question. The answer could be only a few threads away.

Thanks - Your General-Linux Moderator.

Good point, trickykid. Another issue to be addressed should be people doing posts in multiple forums with the same question. It's really annoying to answer a question and the find the question in another forum by the same person.
