There is one aspect that hasn't been discussed and I believe it is very pertinent to the discussion. Search quality means everything on google, here, or anywhere else. A quality search on google usually provides me the answer I'm looking for and it will also point me to a thread on this site. As far as "newbie" status goes... everyone was one and if we try something new, well we're right back there.

I had trouble searching for stuff because I didn't know the the right words to type. When Zags helped me set up my Malawi tank I asked her how she finds this info. And she said you need to put the fishes name then profile after. Let me just say my life has been a lot more better off now.

So now if I tell someone to search Google if I don't do the search and copy and paste a link I tell them what and how to search for it.

You are absolutely right.

I would also add that post count in and of itself doesn't prove you are an expert or that you ARE one, but it does show a willingness to put yourself out there and be helpful.

Maybe "snobbishness" was too harsh a word. I apologize if I went too far there.

Since I am new to the hobby I have lots of questions but I always try googling it first. I have found a lot of great articles to help me out but I find that having the connection with a knowledgable person who can help me with my particular problems is indispensable. That's why I am so happy to have found this forum. <3

Er... I am particularly good at googling... But sometimes I don't I know what words to use either if I don't know what I'm even talking about ^.^
