    When asking a question, such as about an engine swap, a header, valvetrain, transmissions, CEL codes, or really anything else, here's one step to keep others sanity intact.

    After searching hard, if you either do not find any answer, or not enough information, then you may post your question in the proper category, eg., don't post a question about your GZ250 in the 1st gen CRX forum, comprende?

    Also, wen y0 iz be tawkin lik dis mayne bout'cho whipgame aint not a dayum ting nun of deez pimp on herre can do fo yo ass cuz WE CAN'T READ WHATEVER GOD-FORSAKEN PROBLEM YOU'RE TRYING TO TYPE ABOUT.

    I'm sure you all have at least a 6th grade education if you're smart enough to be on a intardnet forum, so please, impress us all with at least your best attempt at proper english. It will help us all in the end.


    And when searching through the For Sale threads, it's your best bet to start from the beginning of the list. Generally, posts on the second page, could very well be obsolete and from 6+ months ago, so pay attention to when it was posted. Again, don't be fooled, oh noobs, because some old threads can be at the top, due to other noobs, who weren't smart enough to read this tutorial on survival here, and brought back a 4 year old dead for sale thread looking for a bumper. There used to be a bright red notification right above the reply box on threads that were more than a month old, but for whatever reason that's gone, so I'll fabricate my own for demonstration.

    You should add in about bringing back dead threads. And grammar and punctuation. This isn't 'da hood', so don't type like it is.

    This should be a sticky

    Dave Holiday for president.

    I believe it gives you some sort of notification when you're replying to an old thread. They obviously ignored it, etc.

    Just best to ignore them than cater to them.

    Lol. I'm actually not really pissed, I don't even care much, I haven't been very active in the past 5 or so months. I just over-addressed some common things, that's all :)

    And I noticed the thief smiley too. I thought it was pretty funny.

    One man's pissed is another man's calm. It is fun heckeling the noobs tho, especially when you call them out on something that they want to portray being an expert of.

    lol @ smiley.
