Ok People .. I noticed and I'm sure alot of you guys noticed the the threads are getting Redundant again, People (Newbs) Aren't bothering to search the forum and find a solution If they are having a problem with the game. I see alot of new threads that have been in here many times over. And I have seen threads of those who have been with the forum a long time pointing out the same thing that I am saying. All the good threads are getting pushed back because some people are to lazy to search the forum to find an answer to their problem. I'm in here everyday surfing around to see what people have to say or if theres a new mod or map. Come on people SEARCH !!! There is all kinds of problem solving for the game in here Just take the time to LOOK !

It would be most appreacieted...

Oh No you aint by any chance dutch are you ?? You sound like a buch of MOD's on a dutch forum u ask a techy quaestion and all u ever get for answer is use the search, read the faq.

If we all did that then we would'nt need a forum would we, i mean Google & alltheweb could solve all our answers.

I for one do not mind answering peoples call's for help, and yes i am a MOD on the server in my sig and there we never say search or read the faq or any other kind of boring elitist remark...

The only stupid question, is the question not asked...

Thanks lniog and TCd12642,

And no OptikN3Rv I'm not dutch, I was born and raised in the states.. Northren calif. I also am here to help when I can and answer questions.. It's the questions that have been asked 10 times over. And I did notice since Christmas has passed that there is a load of noobs that got the game for xmas. And it's nice to enter a forum to ask a questions or get an answer. But if you look thru the forum There is a heck of alot of the same questions over and over.. Yes I do search before entering a question if I have one. Thats called Being responsible and being adult enough to search through a forum to find an answer..I know a few that log on to the forum then right away enter a new post without taking the time to see if there is an answer when they have an immediate problem. They just don't want to look.

So with that, I say Please search if you have a problem before entering a post that is already in here 12 times....

Thank you

honestly, its for their own good. all the regulars have seen question x posted and answered 10 times already. so when some newb asks question x again, no one wants to take the time to answer it. not recieving a rpley within 5 minutes can send the newb into a hideous rage (they are fragile creatures), causing them to post about the stupidity and unfriendliness of the bf1942 community, thus getting them falmed and depriving them of all the joy that is knowing (kinda) all you ****s.

Lol u guys have a N00b phobia. right (offtopic) what is a N00b ? how do u class some one a N00b ???

Meanperson Rookie FileFreak! Registered: December 2002 Posts: 26 (get game for christmas??)er N00b then i suppose.

As i have been playing diff games since the ZX Spectrum days that must make 99% of you here N00b's SO does this mean i can sit on a high chair spouting off that you are all N00b's ?? Then some one who as been games playing longer then me can say i am a N00b :). I used to use the search untill i found out that 99% of the searches i did turned up 1000.000 answers and after reading 999999 of them discoverd that what i was looking for never actual got mentioned in a thread...

As for new mod's like DC htf can u do a search for it if u are unaware that the mod excists, it can happen that 3 or 4 people discover this mod at about the same time and all rush here and open a topic about it, then we "the N00b's" come along and see all 4 threads and answer them and get our ears bent by u l337 64m3r5 .

U don't have to read the topics if u know it's a repeat or an old topic re opend.. So lighten up and try to be polite about it instead of jumping in and giving people rude hassle ... Try posting some thing that don't contain *** or ****** or even ********** :)

riiiiiiggghhttt....

fyi i have been playing the game since october (when i could finally afford it). just because someone doesnt register the instant they see a forum or post more than once a day doesnt make them a n00b. it works the other way too, just because someone has 500 posts doesnt mean they dont play like a n00b. the purpose of my post was simply to bring up the fact that a lot of people dont like answering the same question 10 times. the rest was simply a pitiful attempt at humor. on another note, i actually re-read my previous post and there are certain times i wish i could type.
