Padlocks are expensive 🔒 - Search First and Love Your Mods

Morning folks,

Former mod hear giving a shout-out to all the current mods.
I found this image of @zephy1 merging threads (you can see the new boy watching)

And a reminder to us all to search the forum before posting.

I know we all get excited about our shiny new meta-defining ideas, but maybe someone else has already covered that ground.

In which case, add your brain waves to that conversation.

And, yes, rest assured, I did check this topic before posting (there’s an awful lot of hits on bookmarks and such by the impeccably tidy @Gryphonknight)

Merging threads is quite clumsy and time consuming, so let’s support the mods and add to existing threads when possible.

@rook doesn’t need a high thread-count to get a good night’s sleep

The self-publicist in me knows that cats sell better than dry advice on forum etiquette.

It was hard to get Rook to sit still and pose though.

It helps that I look at every new thread on the Forum at some point…

(except ones that originate in #foreign-languages, I’m mostly useless over there unless I’m tagged)

But what would the mods do if we didn’t ask dumb stuff and not use the search function and just make new topics? They need us. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Now I HAVE to search before I post something…else I’m afraid I’ll look like:

  1. An idiot , or
  2. I have no Love for the mods, or
  3. I disregarded this insightful - detective post

…if the topic I was looking for was already created before !!!

( Or worst case senario, it didn’t show up under relevant search and after the top 8 scrolls i decided to make a post … Which already existed ) :dizzy_face:

…Or you could just drop a Meme. I might forgive you for a clever meme… :grin:

Congrats, @Garanwyn on Mod status!

I’m getting better at searching on the forum. I am now relevant.

Thanks!

You were relevant before. You just required a little more thread management support :grin:
