    Hi,

    I have noob questions about ss.org website and forums.
    I do not find the "search" thing. Really, I looked everywhere on the screen and I just cant find it :/
    I see a lots of threads "NPD ....", "NCD...". What does it means?
    How to "thank" people? I can see the "like" button but I can't find the "thank you" one.
    If I missed a post with answers for those questions, please tell me where it is!

    Thank you very much!

    The search function is near the top of the screen, inbetween New Posts and Quick Links.

    NGD is an acronym for new guitar day, meaning the thread contains pictures of the users latest aquisition, so NBD = New Bass Day, NAD = New Amp Day, NDD = New Drum Day, NPD = New Pickup Day etc.

    The 'Thank' button is the thumbs up that is on the first post of a thread, it awards the receiver 5 reputation points.
    You can also award people rep by clicking the scales by their username.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi dude! welcome!

    Youll find the search function circled in red
    youll find the thanks button circled in blue


    NPD and NCD can mean "New Pickup Day" and "New Cab Day"

    it what we use to label our NGD (New Gear Day) posts.

    Have fun :)

    An even better search technique:

    Go to Google
    Type in the topic you want, and add "site:sevenstring.org".

    For example

    Never apologize for having trouble finding something on a website, piece of software, etc. The fault lies with those of us who design and build these things.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Thank you!

    Hey! I love you guys! You are all so friendly... I will never go again to a French forum. With a thread like this, the only answer I will get are "open your eyes", "learn to read" etc.....

    Lol, I was like, "...where IS the search bar?" I'm used to a search bar being up there on the other forums.
