Hi chris - 

A question similar to yours has been answered on our site at:

Just kidding! I can't speak for all mod's, but the three main criteria I use to determine whether a previous answer exists in our archives are: 1) if I've answered or edited an answer to a similar question myself; 2) if I've read an answer to a similar question, for example when I was helping to compile the FAQs; 3) if the question sounds common enough that it should have been answered before, in which case I check the archives myself. Since I've been moderating for a while now, I mostly use the first two, although I'm told some of our newer moderators simply use a Ouija board.
