( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I understand what you're saying, but are you possibly forgetting what it can be like to be a newbie? I personally posted a request for help on a problem I needed to solve, and I got negative votes. The thing is, I said very clearly in the post that I needed help and didn't know how to write the script I needed to write. I think that it's easy to forget what it's like to not understand a problem even enough to simplify it. I mean, if I needed to build a house, I might post something saying. "help! I need to build a house and don't know how. Any help would be greatly appreciated!". The thing is, I might really not know what the first step should be... Perhaps we could have a "newbies" section where people could post those "stupid" or "I have no idea what's going on!" questions. That way you'd have to actually go to that page to see them....but people should get extra XPs for replying to those posts.... --Ivory
