The recent "Nth" question of the LE5 versions and the subsequent responses about how to get the first time visitors to use the excellent "Search" feature here made me ponder this question. I believe I have come up with a method(s) that might work. I'm not sure if you can count posts or time since inception into the board, but if you have someone that has less than five posts or two weeks as a user, I propose having a pop-up box that would have the following statement or something similiar "Hello new user! Your JBL/Altec question is very likely to have been previously covered. Please use the "Search" function at the top of this page to research or validate your inquiries before submitting a question to any of the forums".
