Does anyone know anything on this forum

Posted 05 April 2008 - 11:31 PM

Yeah this will get a lot of attention but dang can anybody answer questions on here. I thought thats what these forums were for helping each other out. Apparently thats not what this forum is for. Or is just my questions that don't get responses?

It is probably because things like amortization has been answered so many times on this board that we figured you would do a search and find the bajillion posts that provide answers for you.

I myself have answered amortization questions over three languages and frankly I am getting a wee bit tired of it. Sorry. :(

Edit: That and you did spell super wrong. no2pencil is right on top of things.

Well if you guys weren't so immature you might know that people make up names that aren't really names. So no I didn't spell super wrong. That is how I intended to spell super. So STFU.

Nobody wants people like you in these forums, so go away if you're going to complain.

Go find some other forum that EVERYONE's questions get awsered on. Good luck with that.

You know, you probably could have just posted the question again and someone would have picked it up. I am not sure what your earlier question was posted like or when, I didn't see it, but maybe the way you worded it was hard to read or vague.

We are all volunteers here and we do try our best to get to everyone's questions but when you have as many as a few hundred questions in one day it can be hard to get to everyone first time around.

And btw... we are just playing with you about the name. No need to get bent out of shape. :)

Heres the deal big guy, we all volunteer our time here, we do it out of the goodness of our heart. If you think you can find a forum of this size (or larger) where 100% of the questions get answered then by all means, go find one. There are but a handful of us that "patrol" the different language forums here on </dream.in.code>, and at times it can take more than a couple days to get a response, thats just life. On top of that, we have lives; school (some), jobs, families, etc, and we arent here just to serve you.

Marty has a point, if you look in the upper right hand corner you'll see the word Search, then right below that is a TextBox where you can type in some search terms (how odd huh), then a button that says Go, that when you click it will search the forum for the search words you entered into the TextBox. It's always a good idea (and even in the Forum Rules) to do a search to see if someone has had the same question you have, and have received an answer, before posting your question. This topic has been covered, so search for it and you shall find your answer.

If after, and only after, you read through the threads you find (and there will be many) you cannot solve your problem, keep in mind that you have to actually try the solutions you find, then post your updated code, along with any errors you're receiving, and the problems you're having.

If you are unwilling to help yourself, then others will be unwilling to help you. Have a nice day :)

Actually I tried the search and whatever they're doing isn't the same. Plus there is barely any code to any of it. Just forget about it, I figured it out on my own. Its probably not even the right stuff but it works. No thanks to you smart a****. I know you say you try to answer questions but their were 20 some odd views and no replies. Kinda odd huh, right? Yeah I thought so.

So basically, you are going to pout because no one fixed your issue for you.

Bite the hand that feeds, great idea. Since no one helped you, you decide to burn the bridge on a forum with multiple people that are experts in each language. Even I have posted questions that no one helped me with. That's life.

Well it looks as if you just lost any hope of anyone helping you, huh? Thats what I thought

No you guys probably didn't even know how to answer my question. I know almost nothing about visual basic and I just solved my own problem without you so called, "experts". I wasn't mad because you guys didn't solve my problem, it was because nobody attempted to help. I didn't really want someone to be like heres what you do, just say hey maybe you can start here and try this. No instead like a lot of the other forums you guys are all rude. As soon as I took a stab at your knowledge the hard way you guys responded pretty quick. That was really my intentions. You can't respond to one of my questions but you can to an insult.

Looking into the crystal ball I can see your future:

"Will someone tell me how to make a bacon cheeseburger? No? We'll f*** you guys then."
