Re: Forum Pet Peeves
It's my pet peeve when people get butthurt over being given thread recommendations or thread guidance.
If you post a very, very common question/thread, a moderator or an on-the-ball regular Specktrite will post you a list of other threads that already exist and contain all the answers to your question that you'll ever need and possibly nicely remind you about the search function.
Throwing your tiara on the ground and getting butthurt over that is just ridiculous.
Actually, that leads me to an issue with the search function. There are certain words that are too short or too common and will not be picked up during the search. I was trying to get some recs for 3D Gold glitter. I wanted to avoid the, "please utilize the search function in the future" comment so I plugged my phrase into the search box but "3D" was too short so I ended up with 500 search results with every post that mentioned, "glitter" and "gold". I know there are people who use it and have spoken about it but without plugging through all those threads I wasn't going to find it.
EDIT: I was just thinking. It would be great if all new members had to watch a short tutorial on how to use the search function. I don't know how feasible that is but I think a lot of people just don't know how to properly utilize the feature.
