Please Try the Search Engine First

If we are all being asked to play nice I think it only fair to ask posters to play fair.

Please try the search engine before posting at least basic questions. Access to it is right there at the top of your screen. I use it all the time and find answers to most basic things already answered and ages ago.

It is very frustrating to sometimes find posts in almost consecutive order asking the same things as were answered multiples times just last week. For example, yes you have to prime new drywall and drywall repairs and no paint and primer are not the same thing. The answers are not going to change.

This site is old enough it has a wealth of information you may not tap with your question anyhow. Why not at least research what has been contributed already?

I personally LOVE answering the same questions on this site over and over again! NOT. On the other hand, I feel poster do deserve answers and try in the spirit of this site not to let it get to me. USUALLY.

I like to search, and usually search sites without posting.

I know there are lots of redundant questions. I think some of those guys aren't really used to searching the sites. They 'google' their question and, bam, here we are. Then, instead of searching the site or forum they sign up and post.

I wonder what the avg post count is here. I bet there are a lot of onesie twosie posters.

I've yet to have the DIY search engine yield anything useful.

When I've found useful information it was by googling...
which will sometimes (also) gave me a DIY page as part of the result.
