Direct Link To This Post Topic: The new(bie) FAQ 2011
    Posted: Dec/20/2010 at 1:52pm
I couldn't find a good FAQ thread and I think the original FAQ looks outdated, soooo...

For those who want to know about which boots to buy, what's the best boots to buy, boot buying guide, etc:

kimchijajonshim boot fit guide thread:
http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=45408


Boots buying guide started back in 2006:
http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=2488
The best thread I can find on boot fit guide:
http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=37693
For a 10.5 boot to go wide or not:

http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=24045

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Best way to search the site using the "site" search field:


The search function is powered by google, so use google filters like so:
http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?answer=136861

1) First, try searching "sierrascope"  Was that what you were looking for?  Now try some of the techniques below:

2) use quotes to find the exact word string:
         "capita sierrascope"
         "forums - sierrascope"
3) terms you want to exclude use the (-) symbol to remove what you're not looking for like:
          sierrascope -burton

4) (*) is a wildcard, please see the link (
http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?answer=136861) above for more info

Q: What snowboard should I buy?
A:  Read Ippy's snowboard buying guide: http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=40125

Q: Anytime I press the quote button, no matter who it is, it always defaults to quoting the last person that posted.
A:  http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=37622&OB=DESC
     Use the search function = "forums - quote"

Q: How does the pt system work?
A: http://www.trusnow.com/snowboard-members.asp

Q: How to use base cleaner on your board
A: http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=11923


I know there's some other frequently asked questions like:

What's the best (fill in the blank)?
How to repair a board?
What epoxy do I use?
Where's my free t-shirt?
What's a palooza?
5W's and How to waxing?


I hope the more knowledgeable members/veterans will provide more links to common questions and answers so newbies or other information seekers can go straight to this thread instead of posting the same question we've seen over and over again.  I hope  eventually this gets stickied, if there's enough of a response.

Yeah, I hear ya...as I read in another thread, the community is what we make of it...if it's a clustercock, pt zombies, wealth of information, randomness, valid questions, recommendations, quantity over quality...we are all still part of it and participating.

For those who wanted to know the answer to:
"every time I quote, it only quotes the last quote issue"

I posted two links in the 1st post above that may help.

A:  No- just logged in to the site.  Just be aware that the login does timeout after a while, so try to log in as close to 3pm as you can.

krazylegs posted The Ultimate Question thread which essentially makes fun of all these super rad questions we get...fun thread.

This is a good thread and should be helpful to people if it stays visible.

From another thread this week:

1) How to change the title of a thread.
2) How to get the quote function to work properly (not only quote the most recent post in the thread).
Originally posted by Sintexo

Revising the title: edit the original post using the post options.
Quoting the correct person: click "control panel" at the top, then "edit profile." Scroll down until you see "Enable the WYSIWYG post editor" and change it to Yes.

How to post youtube and vimeo videos:
Originally posted by Sintexo

Which type?  Youtube, vimeo?

Youtube you just have to put the video ID inside of [tube]VIDEO ID[/ tube] without the space.
Vimeo, I always just use [tube]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=########[ /tube] where the ##'s are replaced with the video id.
