Can you see how it can appear....
yes use the search function and look at the stickies....but I hope the " stuck up" attitude from other boards does not leak out here...

That is why I do videos to help out the new and old members and have fun myself. It is easier then typing for my two index fingers.
There is a lot more options now than when I joined HF and i know that it can perplex the noob on here whether they are 'forum savvy" or new to the whole thing. it was totally new to me when i signed up. Particularly helpful to me...once I discovered them...where sticky from JustJeff and Headchange4u.
They changed my whole hanging world......
I sort of agree with both Randy and Shug. I guess what i'd like to see is members who have been around for a while answer a newbies specific question ( if they feel like it),and then direct them to search and stickies. There's been a few times i've seen folks just direct someone to search without answering the question and i thought it was a bit rude.
