      Please use the search.
      There are a lot of posts being created when the same exact post is on the next page of the forum.
      The more topics asking the same questions over and over just add to the wrong answers being given.


      There is also this topic…

      I know you were talking about my recent thread 'Lip Vs. No Lip Wheels'. You moved it into the same thread that I've been reading through for days looking for the answer to my question though.
      I attempted a search by going with 'Wheel Lip No' with the intent that it was vague enough to give me a thread with comparisons of wheels with lips vs wheels without lips.

      You placed my post in a thread that wasn't designed to be about lip vs. non-lip wheels. It was to be about photos of aftermarket wheels. So, although your intentions were good it feels like it dilutes the original purpose of the thread.

      Wasn't singling you out. But…
      All of the wheel questions in one topic is better and is a better resource than having them spread across multiple one answer topics.

      One week later and no one bit and gave their thoughts (well, one said lips were better)...but other than that, participation on this didn't happen.

      I can understand your point of view on trying to keep 'like' items alike but at what point is the topic narrow/broad enough?
      You could put the wheel thread in a 'performance thread',more vague but also less likely for someone to find what they are searching for. You could go a step further and put the thread in a 'modification thread', or even broader by simply going to 'GTI' thread.

      So, respectfully I sincerely understand that your task (keep a forum organized) has got to be super tough. But, in the past I have tried to talk about a topic that is related to the thread I am commenting in, I have been called out for hyjacking a thread and going in a different direction.

      With that, if you have came across any threads that specifically asked the questions that I did (in particular wheels w/lips versus w/o), I would love if you could PM me. Thanks for your time.

      Two months later and even more duplicate topics. I think the site needs to initiate some sort of policy to enforce reading the rules. Hell I even violate them some times, but you always get me ><. The biggest forums I'm a part of has a thing where after making an account, if you post in the first three months you get a "stupid noobie" avatar to let people know that you couldn't follow the rules. Of course this is a forum you have to pay to be part of, and pay to change your avatar and so on so forth. That being said I'm way more careful there then I am here because I have money invested. So maybe it will never work for a free forum.

      Pretty much the only way to help out the forums with this is reporting topics. That will alert me that there is a duplicate topic and will help put the forum.
      There isn't any other mechanism built into the forums to combat the "newbie no search syndrome".
