I have been excavating my way through a garage-ful of boxes and I came across my Trader Dick's (at the Nugget Casino in Reno NV), tiki mug.



This came into my collection after-the-fact, I've never actually been to TD's, don't even know if TD's is still there!?

Sorry to use this post as an example but DJ Ken did you know there is a search feature on Tiki Central?

Well there is and It's user friendly and fun to use - Just type in what your looking for... click search....



and see the results -



"Whoa!! Trader Dick's still exists? I must go there!"

Then post your garage finds in there or maybe in "Tiki Finds" and everyone will love you!

Instead of the occurring too frequently lately "Look I found a Tiki... I think?" which is actually much better than my personal favorite "Duh, I like Tiki" followed by a picture of a Snow Shoe.

Okay good, so everyone now knows there's a search feature, how to use it and that I'm a dick.

The End.

And Mr. Unreasonable...what exactly should I search for? Any other posts I made contaning a picture I just took this morning???

I [u]did[/u] search for a thread on mugs in general and the only pertinent result was about making your own. I didn't make this one, so it doesn't match the topic.

I didn't ask a specific question, so the answer isn't out there regardless of what I'd search for...I was simply sharing a personal find and wondering aloud as to the fate of the source, but thank you so much for being a tool and adding nothing to the conversation!

I would have searched for Trader Dick's like I said but I guess you were too busy "rockin' out" to read that part.

I also mentioned "Tiki Finds" since that's where people post things they find but since that's not all about you that wouldn't work either.

Anyway my search tutorial wasn't aimed directly at you but it seemed like a good place to post it and after reading your response I'm glad I did.

Sincerely

- Trader Tool

Ahhh that warm welcoming feeling of comming to discuss stuff on TC....

Search functions are purtty much useless.
I see at least 16 hits on that search, no way would I read thru all those to see if what I was looking for was in there.

Search functions are useless?

They are the most valuable tool on here! Without them people would be talking in circles (or even more so).

As Bora Boris showed, all he had to do was search Trader Dick's. He would have seen it in the "Locating Tiki" section. Once he clicked on it, he would have known that it was still open.

The more people use the search function and put their posts in the proper place, the less overwhelming the search function becomes.

I have to agree the search function is very handy and user friendly. When I use it I type in the key word and if that doesn't give me the results i'm after I try different variations. It can be a bit of a pain going through a heap of old threads, but that also gives you the opportunity to read things you might never have come across any other way.

Unless you are starting a thread that is very specific and is guaranteed not to have a thread already, using the search function to find something also prevents TC from being cluttered with useless posts.

I cant remember who it was or what the thread was or even what topic it was under, but an old thread had been revived which was a very interesting topic and whoever it was that revived it said something along the lines of, "Everything has been discussed here on TC at some point or another".

Ok ok... I recant my statement about it being useless...but you can be helpful in a nice way to a newer member.

Which bring us to the age old question: Where is the aloha?

There was nothing un-nice in Boris' first post, it reads rather matter of fact to me. It is the bane of the internet that everybody takes everything so friggin' personal that nobody dares to say ANYTHING anymore, and everything passes as OK. Vapid.

DJken,

Let's put this in perspective. If everybody on Tiki Central posted a new thread every time they found a Trader Dicks Moai Mug we would have thousands of posts every week. It is a common mug with a well established history.

Do the research before you post and don't take offense if TC peeps call you on your lack of initiative.

Only time I have ever appreciated a Bora Boris post!

All true--sell on one thread, post your artwork on one thread, post your finds on the find thread, etc...

The forum is getting super congested and Boris was simply stating how to post and search in a manner that benefits everyone.

It needed to be said.
