OK, no offense to the newbs... but just about everything here HAS been covered. Check the Front, and especially the Backroom for theories. I know the search isn't great and all, but please - look. big_smile

Thanks!

I second that.  It is especially annoying with flamboyantly titled threads saying something along the lines of "LOOK WHAT I JUST FOUND!!!"  It takes two seconds to search.

I agree, look right now at how many "I WANT THE FIRST HEIST TO START" threads there are.

I did, in fact, post a thread saying exactly this...YESTERDAY. But I said it nicer.

Use the search feature yourself.

Maybe I hate everything. Or maybe I just hate you.

Is it worth anyones time to post things. I very often start a post then half way through decide it won't add enough for it to be worth it.

Things to consider before posting.
#1 Always do atleast two searches before posting a new thread. Ods are that it has been coverd, and if it's old it may not be on the first page.
#2 Am I adding anything useful by posting this commend/thread.
#3 Posting "Tick Tock", the time, "WHERE IS IT", or anything of that nature won't make things go faster.

I hardly ever start new threads.
I'm have one of the highest post counts, but it comes from commenting on threads, not starting useless ones.

I think thats the best way.
It's not useful to start a "new" topic if what you want to say fits in on an existing one.

The problem is, people keep thinking they have something new which hasn't been said before and fail to use the search feature.

By the time I've used the search feature, there are around five to fifteen new posts.  So many people are so busy trying to say something that you either need to stick your foot out or just sit back and watch.

You?

Another problem is, nobody seems to want to delete their thread.  It is possible.  It has been done.  I promise, it will work. smile

I prefer to just sit back and watch/read

Ha, ha. I was just about to say something to the tune of: "Hey you guys! I just found a code I think we're supposed to do something with!" But hey, you beat me. But seriously, it does kinda suck going through threads about the same crap, but I'll always sift through not wanting to miss anything. I know it's only been days in, but maybe it warrants a clean up.

Yeah, a minute of searching is all it takes to check what you're about to post to make sure it hasn't been posted.

Unfortunately no one is going to pay attention to this thread other than those that already use the search function. It's extremely frustrating because I, like many of you, am pretty into this whole thing. Which means I tend to look at almost each and every thread. Which means I waste an ungodly amount of time. Bah, as much as I wish it weren't true I don't think there is any fixing this problem.

Where is that thread? 
The only two threads that I see you have started are:
http://macheist.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=164 and
http://macheist.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=227

Are you telling a joke or did I miss your thread?
