can a very simple instruction be included in the guidance that people first 'search trees' on the site? Many seem either not to have thought of this, or to know how to do it.

I know Ice Ice baby...but I think it's time GR put it in the initial guidance rather than rely on other members to tell people.

It needs to be made much clearer at the outset...preferably when people join GR...

and then we just have to hope that people read, and inwardly digest, the Guidelines! :-D

.....and we are back to the same old question, "Does anyone actually read the board guidelines.....?"
