New to the forum? Here’s how to quickly get answers:

- We have answers on file for the usual questions most people have about our weather, jobs, schools, crime, food, walkability, transit, neighborhoods, singles, towns, commuting, comparisons to other cities, etc. Please scan our index for previously discussed topics before asking or starting a new thread. This should get you answers without delay.

- If a specific concern is not answered either add a new post to an existing thread (if similar) or feel free to start a new thread.

- If you have knowledge you could contribute regarding a topic, please add that where you can.

- Best way to thank someone who’s been helpful is to add positive feedback (reputation) to their account.

- Most of us are local citizens who love the area and enjoy being helpful, but it’s easy to burn out if we repeatedly key in answers to the same old set of basic questions. To prevent that, we ask people to please use the index and search tool before seeking help.

- A great way to zero in on existing info is to use our search tool, especially Advanced Search. If you can google, you can search here and get right to individual threads or posts with key info. Advanced Search is easy to self-learn, or see the brief tutorial at: http://www.city-data.com/forum/faq/1...-function.html

If you’re a Realtor and new to these forums, please read: http://www.city-data.com/forum/faq/9...city-data.html
