I’m all about making a reply to waster your time, since you started it.
Sophisticated, experienced forum participants such as you’all should have a more sophisticated approach. I suggest the following when you and your irritable comrades-in-forum-arms observe multi-posting. Answer one post/thread only, preferably the first post; post absolutely nothing in response to later redundant posts. Politely mention, in only that first thread, in a positive and encouraging way, your OPINION and suggestion regarding decreased efficiency of multi-posting, for all involved. If you experienced, sophisticated forum experts can’t get your “stuff” together enough to do something like that, then don’t continually blame it on the newcomers.[quote]
The one problem I have with that, and it’s a big one, is that often I the first post, reply to it, sometimes even take time to find code examples, only to see that I’ve wasted my time becuse other’s have allready replied. That’s what bothers me. So enless you sigguest that I’m overview the entire forum, and then go back and reply, it’s a bit of an issue.
And as far as the last forum rule, b=of being nice, I think actions speak louder than words - (in reply to “STFU”)
Have a wonderfully hapy day. (being nice)
