Searching.....is it AMRAP or for time?

How much searching satisfies the protocol before we pull the trigger on a question posted. Is it AMRAP or for time? I imagine there is the most latitude here given the thread's title.

I had a question with regard to nutrition and muscle soreness but when I try to search to see if my question has been answered already almost every thread comes up....even the Dog Thread!

So, like a good sport I start poking around and next thing you know a whole hour is gone. I have pretty good luck with more specified things like fish oil or parralettes but for the general questions it's like a haystack. This is unfortunate because I would bet huge money that my question has been answered multiple times

Can anyone offer some tips or guidance? I sure don't wanna be "that guy/girl"

Re: Searching.....is it AMRAP or for time?

I'll say FOR TIME. There are a lot of people who can quickly point you in the right direction if you can't find the answer in a reasonable amount of time. I think this is mostly due to people participating in a thread prior, so they can remember more of the key words or already have it "subscribed."

Provided you aren't posting something like, "I can't find any information on the Zone" or "I don't know where to find the WOD."

Re: Searching.....is it AMRAP or for time?

When searching select "search titles only" if you only want to search the title. You may have to repeat this a few times until you find the right keyboard but it will eventually narrow itself down. If you search for "back squat" in all posts you're going to get every single workout log in the forums, which you probably don't want.

A better search is to go to google, type in site:board.crossfit.com and then type your query. It's usually what I do.

Re: Searching.....is it AMRAP or for time?

Graeme - It was a joke....not so funny I guess. oops

Amber - yep, that's what I thought make a reasonable investment but then ask. There is an incredible amount of knowledge here, but respect is key with this crowd.

Shane - I just tried that for my question and got a much more narrowed group of threads to peruse. I am researching muscle soreness, DOMs and how it relates to diet.

Thanks all!
