search keywords

I would like to help those who are search-challenged (like me) to search correctly. I think some people don't know how to search, are then told to search, search incorrectly, and then get frustrated at the forums. It would be nice if we could have a list of key words:

Gas: fuel, octane, mpg, full tank, manufacturer, mileage

Or a combo:
"benefits" + "manufacturer" + "mileage"

It could be an auxilliary page off of the search page for these keywords or a sticky in each section. This way, instead of just telling someone "to search" we can link them to this page to show them "how to search".

Isn't this what the board FAQ is for?

http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...&page=2#search

I would think that most of the people that come here would know how to search. If one term doesn't work you could just use another to bring up the info you're looking for.

Ah... but here is where the difference lies, I want to help them with keywords. For example, before I came to this site, I only knew of one intake manufacturer, Comptech. Since being on this site for a while, I know that there is Injen and AEM. Are there any others? A newbie like me doesn't know. So when you have a newbie ask about intakes, you can point them to the thread with the different search keywords.

fine... if you don't like this idea, then how about copying what a-tl.com has:

one thread that lists all the other threads so that we don't have to have so many stickies (and then we could cut down on the FAQ forum).

here is an example: http://www.acura-tl.com/forums/showthread.php?t=84831

We've had something just like that before waaaay back on av6.com. You just need your specific gen mods to help out and put one back together. Have him/her start a thread something like 7th Gen FAQ, then you guys can help point them to the right threads with all the good info. The mod should be able to to take all your links and organize them nicely like in your example.

cool... can you make a suggestion on the mod board as that will be easier than me trying to PM the different gen Accord Mods, the Toyota, Mazda, Other Manufacturer Mods?
