I started my professional career as a PHP application developer. A few years later, as the company I worked for grew, I started migrating into the server world. Now I find myself as the DBA and beginner Server Admin.

comment First Posts Reviews not working
@Shog9 That's fine, I had thought there was some redundancy checks (like it takes 2 users per first post to review before it clears out). If not, this is WAI and I'll accept jcole's answer

comment First Posts Reviews not working
@Shog9 hm, perhaps my question would better be 'how does the review queue work' then...because I assumed those things had to be reviewed by X amount of users before being cleared.From the looks of it, a single user (with appropriate rep) will clear it out?

ugh, I need to find a better image, but will leave this as is until I do. Very helpful toolkit for MySQL management. And by find a better image, I mean follow the image guidelines...

Interesting. Your first screen showing the number of First Posts to review...Mine shows '0', not 1.

comment How should 'Have you tried to search'-type comments be handled?
Asking if they did is not telling them to, and it should go hand-in-hand with 'could you clarify what you've tried?'

comment How should 'Have you tried to search'-type comments be handled?
In the case of 'yes', hopefully (but I agree not always) they will also provide more details of what they tried by updating the question (or at least by a comment that can be edited into the question) to make it more useable. In the case of 'no', I can VtC if googling did solve their issue. If 'no, but that didn't help', hopefully they've provided a "here's why it didn't help".

But....that's what we're here to discuss. Feel free to add your own answer. I don't see a problem with 'did you google it' comments, done right. Hence this answer :)

@jcolebrand Meh, I generally don't assume anything, especially with the recent discussions of garbage on SO and not wanting that on our site. Yes, I know there's 'VtC', but that's generally my last tool after comments fail, as a 'close vote' generally has a negative connotation to it. I don't want to negatively impact a user if his only offense was not knowing how to ask a question on stackexchange.

Just a note, this is for comments only. 'lmgtfy' answers (with nothing else) should be removed, IMO.
