This forum is AMAZING!

What is so great about it IMO is the fact that everything we write in here STAYS here for eternity.

This means that all the great advice that we get and give, stays here for everyone to come back to later, and read, re-read, learn from, comment on, etc.

We're all doing a variation of the same thing, and we're all here for the same reason.

This ALSO means that if you have a question, an issue, a problem and it's weight loss related, there is a HUGE chance that someone have had that exact problem before you.

The Forum has an amazing search feature.

You'll find it in the upper right corner of the forum. You can search different places, but if you choose "forum" and enter a few choice keywords, then you can find a lot of topics relevant to your issue.

This way, you can easily find very inspirational threads and discussions about all these issues, and most likely answers to your questions.

I suggest we all use it before we create new topics and ask questions, for several reasons:

1. All your questions have probably been answered already, and discussed in depth. It will take quite a while to get as fulfilling answer again, if you have to wait for as many people to pitch in once more.

2. By gathering all the information in fewer discussions, we get even better answers down the line. If we open 10 threads with the same questions, all the information about that very topic gets scattered and harder to find.

3. By opening a new topic with already answered questions, and frankly, some of the questions are asked MANY times, over and over again, you risk that people simply ignore it and don't answer as they have already been answered so many times.

4. If you find a thread relevant to your topic, and feel like pitching in on the topic, this thread will be brought to the TOP of the topics list, making it a current topic for everyone to read. This keeps the topics fresh and relevant, even if they are older topics. Genious!

I'd like to encourage everyone to NOT open new topics before you have searched to see if you can find an answer to your question. Let's gather the information in an easy-to-find way, and help everyone learning.

Of course, I am not saying that you're not allowed to ask questions, or that you're not allowed to open a new topic. I am as always happy to answer and help and I have always done. I'm simply asking you to consider if this may have already been answered by someone, or asked by someone having a similar issue. It would give you an much more in-depth answer, simply by spending 30 seconds searching.

I'm pretty sure that someone ask already asked about weigh-ins, the right calorie intake, plateauing, how to post pictures, which diet works, how to deal with resisting sugar cravings etc. Smile

Life is good!

I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

That would be great, but how do you search posts. I find this site a little messy. It's way to busy to do anything other than track food/exercize/weight very easily.

When you search the forum as Kingkeld explained, that is the same thing as searching posts. Personally, I think this site is excellent - of course there are things that could be upgraded/fixed/added, but for a free site and free app, I think it's great.

Excellent point, KK! I don't know how often I'll see a thread started that is almost identical to one I just saw earlier that same week. Definitely check first, for all the reasons mentioned above. Some very cool people have also included links to previous similar discussions in those threads, so you could find an old post that includes several others and unearth a treasure trove of information Very Happy

BUMP!

I feel bad for not replying to some people's forum posts, but hate reliving the SAME questions over and over again.. I don't want people to think that nobody is paying attention to their questions, but I know we all don't want to just keep posting the same stuff in a million different places... so that's why some posts seem to get 'ignored' - it's not because they are less important..

Bottom line: PLEASE use the forum search!!! Smile

Imo fatsecret should have a "sticky" function for threads that are particularly helpful and/or relevant.

Sticky's would be great! I am SO with you on this. But of course, it would also take more moderation, and so on... Smile

I agree with erika that this is a fabulous site, especially as she said...for FREE. Those of us who visit here a lot, like 24/7 lol, just kidding, know our way around very well. I have to admit I have only scratched the surface of everything that's available...and I kinda like the "messiness"...it means I still have some freedom to do what I want without some moderator constantly censoring me, or moving things around, constantly changing things in the name of "improvement"...I have never felt that I'm being judged or ridiculed...We seem to all be of basically one mind, here, kinda like a family...long live fatsecret!
