Or maybe said forum members are tired of the (relatively) same topic coming up almost daily because some members don't know how to read or use the search function, or choose not to. Really man, it gets old when the same shit comes up all the time

The point is not that he cant ask questions, but questions that he put absolutely no effort into. He could have searched google, read some stuff, not understood it, then asked. that would be different

I get that, but there's interaction when you ask somebody. Sometimes it's nice to hear what other people are doing, and not just some guy on a youtube demonstration, especially when the people you're asking are people that are into the same things you are. It might be more beneficial than someone on youtube teaching fat people how to do 20 reps of minimal weight. It's just a situation to me where like, if it bothers you, don't answer him.

3 times a week max on your arms, they need a chance to recover and grow aswell.
over train and you wont see the 'big' biceps your looking for.

Eat two times your body weight in protein
pull something heavy (weights would work or maybe just your body weight)and then let your biceps rest for 2 days while you eat eat eat eat.

Overtraining is based on intensity and frequency. I train my bi's and tri's once a week and sometimes twice a week depending on how I'm feeling. I personally hit them hard and heavy. The triceps have always been more durable but my biceps struggle to repair themselves for that second workout.

I wouldn't recommend training them more than once a week but I understand training them twice a week if your intensity isn't all there the first time around.

also remember your triceps make up the majority of your arm size so dont neglect them in search of big biceps

Do arms once a week but hit your chest and back real hard as well and (if done right) you will have another workout for both of them. I'm not going to lie, I love some curls, but I get a great arm workout from doing rows and such as well. On your chest day try close grip presses to hit chest and tear the shit out of the long head of your tricep

Preacher Dumbell curls are amazing for developing your biceps, use a low weight, one you can comfortably to 10 reps with, then slowly raise and lower, while lowering turn to a tricep extension (ie. curl up, then turn your wrist and extend out.)

I try to get a couple sets in at the end of every session..
