Where do smart people get help from.

Posted 06 October 2006 - 12:24 PM

Ok, in the past few months i've been noticing that people in the forums i visit are asking stupid, undescriptive questions about extremely simple problems which only require some logic... I came to realize that there is only noobs (for the lack of a better to word to describe an inexperience rather stupid user) who seek help on forum. So im wondering where do the really good programers and other good computer people sick help from? Do they even look for help? Documentation, MSDN, Self help things?

I presonally use MSDN and other documentations extensively and rarely if ever ask questions on boards now adays...

EDIT:

And also... the peopel that are going in college.. every year the same questsions come at about the same time.. So its like a cycle... they all start with the mortgage calc, then a calc, than some forumal (fabbiconi thing?) then translating numbers to words and etc...

I mean there is so many warnings and notes everywhere that say "SEARCH THE DAMN BOARD" yet they dont...

The whole point of the site is to help everybody; go look up my first posts when I was messing around with VB, I don't sound much different than a lot of people who are new here.

I'd say if you don't ask "smart" questions at a forum like dream.in.code, then dream.in.code will always be a place for beginners. If you ask a few advanced questions, and try to get some people that know what's up to answer them, it'll attract more types of those questions and balance out the playing field.

Just because the majority of the forum's questions are at the novice-intermediate level does not mean you are forbidden to post advanced questions; we have plenty of very intelligent people here that are happy to help and collaborate.

I believe he's genuinely asking, irrespective of how many noobs are on this forum or any other, where do people who are advanced go for advice?

Perhaps there are advanced forums out there.

anytime i ask an advanced question here, i never get and answer, (cept for jayman occasionally coming to my rescue) So I end up having to figure it out myself..

So i'd say they get help from either their own head, or the msdn..
