Yeah when volunteers do it, its alright and when other members do it you guys scold him with your harsh words.
The best advice for anyone who wants to answer forum questions is:
- Lurk on the forum for at least 3 months and familarize yourself with all support documentation.
- Learn how to search for answers both onsite and by using search engines and locate them while you are lurking.
- When you do feel your a compertant enough to post correct answers be sure that you do not post any answer to any question that you cannot back up with links to support documentation and/or to the answers previously provided by experienced Volunteers found in forums threads.
- Avoid socialising in support forum threads and posting personal commenst that do not answer the OPs questions.
- Post only short answers using as few words as possible. Lengthy answers can overface and annoy new bloggers.
If you think I have been harsh you have another think coming. If you were an English as a mother tongue speaker I would have blasted you long, long ago and more than once for being rude. There are cultural differences in English usuage and there are things that are not polite to state to strangers at all. English as a first language speakers are well aware of these but you do not seem to be as English is not your mother tongue and as your personality type is a loud and pushy type that does not respect elders as we are expected to do. You have crossed the line into rudeness and impertinence many times in forum threads presumably without knowing it. I say this with kindness to you.
Sorry but you can expect these things from a guy of 19. Now at least you guys have realized that saying someone that this is a support forum and you’re not allowed to do your personal chat sounds painful to him. I’m sorry if I’m rude anywhere intentionally or unintentionally cause I’m not at home with English as TT mentioned.
However you guys should feel the feelings of others too.
The place for chat is in Off-Topic forum threads as you well know. We do not chat in support question threads as to do sop when an OP has posted for help would be exceedingly rude as it amounts to ignoring them in their own thread.
This is an anology. Firstm read your last sentence and then read this and see if you comprehend the meaning:
If you choose to swim in a pool with sharks and keep annoying b them you may get bitten. If you bleed even a tiny bit, then all the sharks will be tempted to take a HUGE bite of you. If you are beginner swimmer don’t jump into the shark tank … until you have what it takes to swim with sharks.
When you’ve nothing to say you just speak louder.
I’m not willing to fight with sharks having large teeth :)
But my view wasn’t trash-worthy to be ignored. Hope you’ll keep this in account.
I apologize for my harsh words to the senior members here. You’re the real people. I love you volunteers. And now I’m going to use my superpowers too :)
Rude words? Like your “Go to hell” perhaps?
After reading my reply to agrubio, a normal person in your place would have said: “sorry, didn’t notice what the question was”.
When I was a 1-month old member, hnsaifi, I kept my mouth shut and tried to learn instead of confusing others with bad replies (let alone try to play smart on top). Click Member under “justpi” to see when I started using WP, and then click Member under “panaghiotisadam” to see when I started giving replies here. Then start studying timethief’s 5-point regimen: it’s the best prescription against “painful” experiences.
As for whether we should discuss usernames, go tell that to your friend iphonist1 first:
(You can also show her my two usernames, since like you she thinks she can tell experienced users what they can or cannot do.)
Thesacredpath is the most knowledgeable volunteer here, so possible issues with his username aren’t “personal chat”, they are a matter of absolute relevance to these forums.
And as for “you can expect these things from a guy of 19”, expect doesn’t equal accept. To paraphrase one of your replies, this is a technical support forum, not a discussion about your feelings.
Yeah and you scolded her with, this is a support forum, not about other’s username. And she said nothing in response. And when I did the same you guys are biting me like sharks. Priorities matter.
Ah, so much for “Topic Closed”…
And, scolded her? “Let’s not discuss this here please!” is scolding? Buy yourself a dictionary please.
I’m sure you understand that some friendly greetings between friends is not unwelcome in these forums.
It shouldn’t surprise you that your subsequent remarks, which are less than cordial (bluntly: rude), have been answered so directly.
Please be kind in these forums.
But also, don’t post incorrect, incomplete, or ill-researched answers to questions. Doing so makes this forum less than useful for everyone.
I’m going to delete the volunteer section from this post
I’m sorry you feel that way. I can only say that answering questions in these forums requires maturity, diplomacy, tact, and most of all accurate, informed, tested, and documented references.
Give yourself some time to develop. No one has been biting you like sharks: only consider that you should think carefully, research your advise, and maintain a respectful stance with everyone who posts here.
I’ll close this topic.
The topic ‘changing fonts’ is closed to new replies.
