Avoiding duplicate questions with the wiki

I know you can edit templates in IPB, so would it be a good idea to put a nice big notice in red above the Post topic screen telling you to search the wiki first? It'd cut down on lots of questions we get now, and with the easy-to-use main page...
err... i'm not using windows any more ;)

I think it would be smart. I mean just something that's obvious not large then life, but obvious. I hate redundant questions on this forum it's the one reason why we created the wiki base in the first place, besides a lot of other information you can't find by doing a search. I remember once there was seven different posts about the release of the Creative X-FI soundcard on here in a span of three months. Each topic was 10 pg long worth of useless information that we already knew haha. ;-D

Not only the wiki; the forums also.

It should at list explain how to search the forums/wiki using Google, i.e. prefixing the search term with "www.hydrogenaudio.org:" or "wiki.hydrogenaudio.org:", respectively.
