Thanks for the refresher.
It is easier to get answers if you search for the topic first -- b/c many of us are not necessarily going to respond to a new thread that is almost exactly the same as previous threads we have already responded to (at least I am less likely to...)
As for the shoutbox, I believe it is supposed to be a place just for random chit chat, I think the point of Tammy mentioning this is that we're trying to make the forum and all of the users here more efficient, and Tammy and the mods work really hard to monitor things on the forum and keep this a great place, so by using the search bar, its kind of like following the rules. If no one followed the rules the forum would be complete chaos. Can you imagine if every person in the shout box was asking where to find something, it kind of defeats the purpose.
