    Why can't I ever find what I am looking for

    Ever since QB went to the new format, I can never find what I am looking for and I am always posting in the wrong place. For example pictures, and I just went in the free stuff folder and couldn't find anything.

    the best way to find things that you may not have made a comment on is to use Advanced Search. when you get there, you will see two tabs. i get the best results when i use the left tab. if there's something that you know you will want to come back to later, you can use the thread tools to get back to it.

    as far as where to post, click on the Home tab. it lists all of the forums and a description of what goes in each forum. it also helps to be familiar with the Community Guidelines and the guideline for the individual forums. these can be found by clicking on the forum and looking at the first sticky thread.

    hope this helps

    I find that the advance search is much better in order to find posts. Wish besides just selecting "post" you could select the category such as only "photos" or "main"

    I just went into Advanced Search, and couldn't figure it out. What is a tag? I wish these things on the page were explained better.
