Is it just me?

I dont see what the big deal is. If you dont like the repetitive questions, skip them! this is a forum, not a doctoral thesis. Also: speaking for myself, and probably for some others, I have come and gone as far as my activity here. So when I return, I might use the search function - in fact, I usually do - but the replies may go back to 2010. I do usually read through them but I may post to see if there is newer thinking. I think we all know that what works for one of us - even with the same type and properties of hair - may not work for us. A 3A/3B curlie with low porousity coarse hair in New Mexico will probably not use the same products as I do here in wisconsin. Complaining about repetiteness? sorry to be blunt but we are all here to learn, and as someone said "There is nothing new under the sun". But we keep hoping - and using the search function : )

Well, I'll give the perspective of a newbie...

I read all the stickies, felt overwhelmed by a million acronyms, and used the search feature a lot. I found posts that were very similar to my questions, but had a main difference (like porosity, etc.), so I asked a few questions.

So far, nobody has been rude, and everyone has been awesome. I haven't gotten a "you should have found that on Google" response, and the sense of community/activity here is really appealing.

So... whatever y'all are doing is working, at least for the new arrivals. I've been on forums in the past that had become "search only" ghost towns, because you were supposed to search and search before ever posting and thus... nobody posted new stuff. So it's a delicate balance.

I think that posting gives people a sense of participation, too. So if they are asked not to post right away or get that sense from other users, there isn't as much reason for them to ever come back to the forum. Psychologically, we are invested in things that we invested something (our words and thoughts) in... so we keep an eye on them.

Thanks for this good forum.

Basabo: thank you. My point(s) exactly.
I like the brick and mortar idea, though I'm skeptical it's feasible.

Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.

I would absolutely live at a curly-hair lady-talk coffee shop... Mmm, coffee and curls...
