If you see a post somebody makes and you bang your head and scream "why don't you just use Google to find it!!!" then please do not convey that exact feeling but instead gently nudge them by utilizing this site:

http://lmgtfy.com/

1. Go to that site
2. Type in what you want them to type and click Search
3. Copy the generated URL and paste it into a reply post.

Example Reply #1:

How to find OBSE download

Example Reply #2:

How to find Akatosh Mount to download

If you find that you use this a lot, you can save the following text somewhere that you can quickly copy/paste and simply add on the search parameters with a plus sign (+) separating each.

Code: Select all

Code: Select all

Have fun helping newbies level up!
