Searching Made Easy: Master List Of All Newbie Guide Threads

Modified on Sat, 04 Feb 2023 at 01:06 PM

"Search the newbie guide section", they said. Except where could the answer to the question you're looking for be? Is it in newbies? Is it in newbies+? Is it in brand new to BHW? Who knows, am I right?

I know that searching the newbie guide section can be cumbersome. We also can't fault anyone for not knowing how to use the search function on the forum when they might not know where to find the newbie guide thread telling them how to do this. It's so much easier to just hit CTRL(CMD)+F than to use the search function.

In case you're wondering how to use the search function to search the newbie guide section, select "Newbie Guide" in the forums list and select "search sub-forums as well".


Now, without further ado, here's a master list of every newbie guide thread.

As an added bonus, I've even added some keywords that aren't in the titles next to some of the threads just to make things even easier. These keywords are based entirely upon the many, many messages I've received over the years.
