Message Board Tip: The Search Function is your friend, too!

It's not just Google, anymore. Many times I've posted "Google is your friend" because many questions are answered so quickly by "St. Google of the Computer" as it's known in our house.
But our own Search Function is handy dandy, too!!
If you're have a question about romantic restaurant dining in Disneyland and you remember that adriennek always recommends the same place but you can't remember which place that is....
You can select "Advanced Search" and narrow the search down to posts by adriennek, posted in the Disneyland Trip Planning Forum OR in all of the Disneyland forums only, an type "Romantic dining" or "Romantic restaurant".
Even if you don't have a member's name in mind to ask, the search engine will often give you good threads to start with.
If you still have a question, you can decided "This thread is only about a month old, I can reply and ask my question here" or "This thread is almost 6 months old" - start a new thread and you can even mention "Ok, saw this answer, but I have a clarifying question." If you want to link back to an older thread, that can help, too.
Don't be afraid of the Search Engine. And feel free to ask for help, too!
