Thats the one that drives me nuts. If I act like a good boy and do my searches and find a relevant thread but it doesnt quite answer my question... I post in it and some one says... geeze this is an old thread..
Whereas if I wouldve started a new thread someone would say "bet if you searched you would find that answer"
I HATE double standards.
Cant have it both ways yanno?
I don't disagree with you.
But I have to say that I never had anybody gave me a hard time for resurrecting old threads. In fact I dont remember if anyone else ever gotten a hard time for resurrecting old topic on this forum.
Hey man, I hear you. There are way too many uptight members who jump down your throat about doing searches etc. The purpose of this board is to communicate, connect, network. If it were only a source of information, we'd stop posting and just search. It seems like 99% of anybody's issues have been discussed already.
So post away. Dont' be afraid to say "who likes Eisenmann exhaus?" or whatever. Some jerk will tell you to look for the last thread, but ignore him and make new friends.
Actually look at this way. It also for your benefit. For a member who just joined the forum they might not feel this way, since they always seems in a hurry try to find the answer.
For the other who are researching certain topic, how do you think they will feel when they search for a particular topic. i.e "Eisenman exhaust" and it come back with 100+ threads...
I would rather keep less number of threads as minimum as possible and you just have to go throught those thread to find the answer you're looking for.
The chances that the question a newbie has, it has already been asked before. So I myself, always search first.
After all the E39 M5 has been around for a while.
