I am proud to announce that I was going to ask when it will be possible to apply, but I took my time and read the existing comments, and found my answer. Now I don't need to ask and waste anyone's time.
However, it is true that by writing what you are reading right now I am wasting people's time anyway. Why am I writing this? Why am I even writing anything?
Well, you see, there are people who don't search for whether their question has been asked before and just ask it anyway.
And then there are people who do look it up, and likely find an answer.
And then they leave. You don't get to acknowledge them. You only see the repeated questions from the ones who didn't search. And you know what that means? Exactly! It gives the readers a feeling that nobody searches, and everyone reposts! By readers I mean not the readers of this post, or this topic, or this forum for that matter. It's all over the Internet. In some places, you might be a dedicated reader. Elsewhere, you don't know much about what's going on and want to ask something. On one side you are exposed to the effect of selective nature of posts I described above, and on the other side you have the choice of either looking up or reposting.
So this is what encourages you not to search before asking. In part.
For you see, there is another phenomena with a great impact on the matter. Surely you remember the last time you encountered a road block in the task you were assigned, and you went to your manager and asked "Hey, what do I do now?", and the manager was like "Why don't you just try this?", and it was such a simple solution you couldn't believe you didn't think of on your own? It was something you knew about, and could have easily figured out on your own if you gave it a couple minutes and were determined to do it yourself.
What am I getting at here?
The bottom line is that, if you try, you can avoid this mentality of helplessness and find a way to realize that things that seem impossible can be accomplished if you really accept that you have control of these things.
