Why is the Dev-/Admin-Team sometimes annoyed?

Because we are working on YaBB SE without getting any money from it and some people are just too lazy to read through the boards/faq to find answers on their own, before they start complaining.

Another reason could be, that some users are treating us Devs/Admins like we owe them something.   ::)

I have to admit that search feature is pretty cool. although I found selecting search by "phrase" seemed to pick up more words that I look for.

I don't get it?

I assume your talking about my above post complimenting on how well the phrase search feature works? perhaps I worded that wrong?

no worries. I was just trying to express how well the search function does work. I guess getting people to use it more often first before asking the question is the hardest thing to do.

So I can sympathize with the admins/moderators when an obvious question could have been picked up using the search feature.

It is probably the least used function on any forum, yet it is the most uselfull!  ;D

Even searching doesn't always yield the results one may be looking for. ;) Especially if one has not tried the right combination of words. Mind you, that is not a complaint about the search system whatsoever, simply a plain fact about search systems in general. :)

Anyway.. if I see that someone else has posted a question that has already been answered, I generally assume that their search attempt was unsuccessful and I try to point them in the right direction if I can do so. I certainly agree 100% that its not the developers' responsibility to do so, and suggest that other non-Dev forum members try to do so as well. That way everyone is happy and the Developers don't have to be annoyed as often. ;D
