Hi Geeks

I'm still relatively new to SG but even in a few months I have noticed the repetitiveness of some of the threads. I hope no one minds but I thought it might help to put together a thread for newbie tanners that will answer some of the questions that are asked everyday. I am no where near as experienced as most of the members on here so if any body would like to chip in and add bits then feel free. If we can try and keep the thread bumped up on the first page it might give the more experienced (& extremely helpful) members a rest from answering the same questions from us newbies. Here goes:

1) The search button is the most useful tool on this forum. It can be found either at the top of the page under the SG logo (this will allow you to search all forums) or on the blue bar (under the advert) this will allow you to search within The Skin Forum. The best bit of advice I could give to new SG members is to do a search first, if you don't feel you have found the answer then start a thread.

Well done you! This is great, it is slightly annoying answering the same questions all the time but a lot of newbies don't realise we have the search function and what a fan resource it is.
Great initiative and I'm sure this thread will be very helpful :) x

Also it may be better if you change the tile of this thread, you may need to ask a mod to do it for you, to make it clear what it's about eg. FAQs about spray tanning :)

This is a great idea and hopefully should cut down on the constant repeat of the same threads you see over and over again. Perhaps a mod could sticky it?

Great work, well done for the time taken x
