    Re: How to ask for help. Read before posting your question.

    I have had issue searching on this site compared to others. I only recently joined the whole forum thing, (within the past few months) and I always fear asking some questions but I do search first with no luck. Not all of us are purposefully asking dumb questions.

    I never said anyone was asking dumb questions. The point I at least attempted to make is simply putting all the information WE need to answer YOUR question in your first post in a thread is a major step forward to getting your question answered.

    The search function is not perfect, but it's a good starting point. That's why there's a step 2, if you get nothing on the search, the important thing is that you took the time to actually search.

    If you really want to find a solution to a problem quickly, type a few keywords about your problem in Google or Yahoo search. That'll find solutions in threads across many online Jeep forums.

    inferno, i think i agree with what you are trying to accomplish. if you are refering to someone starting a thread and simply putting, "help it wont start" or "my fan is not working please help". then it is usually followed by 3 pages of what kind of vehice, when does it happen and a bunch of other worthless banter. if the original request had included all the info you mentioned it would probably have been answered and solved within four or five posts. there is so much knowledge and experience on this site we can fix anything. i know i am not a big contributor to this site but i do read and learn alot on here. this should be more of a common sense issue, you don't go to the doctor and tell him "it hurts" and expect him to fix the problem based off that info only, why should this be any differant.

    What is wrong with a new discussion?

    Conversation on forums is dying too?

    LOL. I am assuming this is what you found when searching for your sway bar question. There is nothing wrong with asking questions on the board, especially when you are new to jeeping. This community specifically (the VJC) is more open to repeat questions than some forums (re: Pirate4x4).

    Be warned, however, that there are "hot button" topics on this board (as with any) that will bring out "the hate". As a public service announcement, here are a couple of topics to avoid at all costs:

    * Publicly posting GPS coordinates to trails (use private messaging or go with a friend the first time)
    * Discussing the bypasses on the Elvis trail
    * Hell, bypasses in general (and if you "really" ran the trail if you took a bypass)
    * Creating a new bypass because you couldn't make an obstacle
    * The Coke Ovens
    * Rock stacking (and not un-stacking afterwards)
    * Mike and Randy's "special" relationship
    * Prius ownership (please see above)
    * Why our forum is hosted on a Mac server
    * Sharing trail information with the BLM
    * Calling a Patriot (especially Around in Circles) or a Commander a "Jeep"
    * Gender change surgery of a member
    * The new 2014 "Cherokee" - if your review is a positive one
    * Service at the CK Saloon - if it's a positive review
    * Alan's height (or lack thereof)
    * Why doesn't Lance wheel anymore

    Hope this helps a bit. I'm sure I missed a couple of hot topic buttons, but this is a good list to get started.

    Also also, here is a list of common abbreviations you will seen the board: http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/showt...+abbreviations

    So Alan, is Lower Woodpecker still closed?

    Seriously, thanks for the minefield map. Should be a 2014 sticky.

    You forgot one:
    Pack in and pack out. What is considered littering on the trail.

    Notible mentions would include:
    Is this person qualified to 'lead' a trail run?
    What caused that Jeep to roll.

    Always interesting, but less dramatic:
    What is the best tire?
    Where should I mount my high lift (and do I even need one)
    What is the best winch.
    What should I air my tires down to?

    Pet Peeves:
    People who always jump in early to sign up for a limitied trail run that fills up and then drop out the night before or the morning of.

    Oh, and don't incorrectly insinuate that Jeep'n is only for guys.

    My jeep has a drive line that shakes the whole chaises. I spent 4 gs on the "why it death wobbles" and 3 more on saying its the drive line. All was replaced even seals in the differentials. Phoenix rack and axle "Richard" put new bearing in the hubs and I had both front and rear drive shafts rebuilt by Phoenix rack and axle. Every one including Luke AFB recomnded them. unfortunately I cant live with this.
    Transfer case has been re-geared, would that be the cause?

    "Modifications that could possibly be the cause of your issue"

    Forget the "could possibly" part.....ANY recent changes/ anomalies. Pages of suggestions for why failed emissions for conclusion "I did not think bad alternator would cause emissions problem"
