The search functions works great for that, you can find it in the top right navigational bit. (not meant in a "really nice" way, but sincerely to help you find things like this more easilly)

If the older members of CC forum don't have the patience to continue providing the same answers to us newbies to such questions as will undoubtedly be asked over and over, then they might consider just locking the whole forum for themselves and not allowing any new members in.
Hmm, the tone of this bit caught me off-guard, I'm not sure what warranted that reaction. I do agree that Handar's post was a bit sarcastic, but since in this case the answer was really right there, I don't think it was meant in a bad way.
I've always felt that if anyone had a question, there's more than enough people that can and will help out. Sure if you're new you don't know where to find everything, that's natural, but honestly you'd be surprised how many people (not just newbies, mind you) are actually too lazy to look around, rather than unable to find what they're looking for. It's instances like that, that basically spark responses like Handar's (though I still don't see his reply as particularly mean), even on questions that were meant in a sincere way.
I don't think it's entirely justified to say CC's old skool members should just lock their forum to new members if they keep this attitude up. I haven't been around on CC for that long myself, so I know this community can be a bit difficult to get into at times, but if you really have trouble with something, there's always someone to help out. That's the way I've experienced it for the time I've been around.
