  • Computer Chat It amazes me who attempts to run forums...

    <rant>
    I'm ranting a bit here, but from the pure idiotic questions and such in the help forums here. It truly amazes me the amount of people who have no clue as to what they are doing with a webpage, programming html, or general computer knowledge at all; trying to run a forum.

    If you don't know anything about computers, maybe you should leave the running of a forum to the people that do know what they're doing.

    I'm not perfect, I ask questions all the time, but at least I have a base of knowledge to start with. It drives me crazy seeing the morons out there stepping in to a realm to which they have no place. Argh, but I guess everyone has to start somewhere. :|
    </rant>

    Now that I've got that off my chest, I apologize to any of those I offended.

    We were all there at one time.
    My rant is about 'admins' who are unable to even attempt to find a solution on their own.
    There is a function called search and a new fangled website called google.

            Everyone starts off new, people as "Idiotic" questions because they are new, and dont understand it.

            Some people actually want to learn - hence why they ask questions.

            Im sure you would have had to ask these idiotic questions at some point.

                I love Linux, but for the first few years I was always to shy/nervous to post or ask questions in a forum because I didn't know how they work, and I'd see people "bashing" others for not posting their damn specs of their PC and similar stuff like that.

                It still burns me to see people do things like that today to new comers, or old timers for that matter.

                Point is, I'd be alot smarter today if I had asked question in the beginning. ( On second thought it may have done me good to solve some things on my own )
                But I would had learned alot faster if I had.
                "GOOGLE" is my Best friend and always will be, but forums are for experts and newbies alike, or they should say so in the header if otherwise...IMAO

                Thanks,

                  Indeed. This thread is very condescending.

                    There is nothing wrong with asking questions, like steven s said: we were all there one time. The technical stuff isn't that important anyway: what matters is your passion for the subject of your forums. I rather see a noob admin with a great passion for something than someone who thinks he knows all, doesn't ask questions, and is just in for making money.

                      I'd rather have someone running a forum who doesn't know the ins and outs of altering the website than some condescending jackass who thinks that questions are beneath them.

                      Content is king, not coding.

                        You must be an arrogant and selfish person oddmud!
                        We dont have to be an expert to try new things.
                        I was having fun yesterday reading about how to create a website, I slept at 2 am in the morning seeking knowledge.

                          @oddmud. IMHO out of order. We all started somewhere. I'd hazard a guess that most of us with no html or coding knowledge.
                          It starts as a hobby, project, enthusiasm and grows. Don't be so condescending.

                            Part of the strength of vbulletin is that it is easy to set up. They are in the business of selling forum software that works not successful forums.
