  • How to NOT get help LOL

    1. Don't use question mark, nor commas
    2. Post 3 times a day on your thread, just to bump
    3. Start the thread with title like "HELPPPPP ME!!!" or "NEED HELP, URGENT", don't state the problem in the title
    4. Never read what you already wrote
    5. Never specify your board/php/mysql version
    6. Don't post screenshots, parts of code errors, or any useful information
    7. If you paste a code, don't use [code] tag, just paste in normal text the full code
    8. Never do search before asking, just post anything that comes to your mind
    9. Request immediate help reply
    10. Never reply, nor even revisit the forum, after getting help, don't even think of the Thank button

      You know there are hacks for that. The current one I know shows under each post:
      "The following users thank for that post: [user1], [user2]"

      I really hate this thing.
      Meow!

      Please excuse my bad English.

        Some forums may have use for it, or modified it as a view system rather than thank-you's.

          I use it. It's a replacement of the reputation system, which I believe may be too complicated for some members.

            11. Don't post a link to the page having the problem
            12. If you discover a solution on your own, don't tell us what it is, in case it might help someone else
            13. Refer to an obscure feature/modification without explanation that (a.) has nothing to do with the product the forum supports and (b.) no one will know about unless they travel the same circles you do

                Yes, thanks, but did you get #13? It was a sarcastic reference to your #10.

                    I go to a Coding Forum and the thank you hack I use all the time there. If a coder helps me, he/she is sure as heck getting thanked for it. It's better than rep I think, as the system is meant for positive interaction. If you don't get thanked, you don't get thanked but it never turns negative on you either.

                    I find it funny that vb uses no modifications but turns the settings OFF for negative reputation in there core product here at vbulletin.com, NOT showing you that you actually can and many do give bad reputation.

                    Must be a joy for staff only. lolz

                      No one has the ability to give negitive reputation.

                            I know it's only a single sentence, but did you proof-read it before you posted it? I read it a half dozen times and still don't know what you said. So...
                            14. Don't proof-read to make your spelling errors, jumbled wording or butchering of the English language understandable.
