    Are you put off replying to poorly written posts?

    Sponsored Links
    I constantly see poorly written posts (not just on this forum) that are in desperate need of a little spell checking, grammar, punctuation, the use of proper words etc that really need some effort on the part of the reader to actually understand exactly the OP is trying to say.

    Is there anyone else who feels these posts take too much effort to give an informative reply and just don't bother?

    i dont answer posts where the question has been answered before and a search will find it
    and posts where an option is needed, what is the best type posts, how can you answer that

    as for spelling, grammar and punctuation it doesn't bother me to much. as long as i can read it im happy enough. not everyone is good at it. schools would rather teach how to find the angel of a triangle than spelling and adding

    not everyone is equal and some are just not good at it

    eg me

    TBH it wouldn't bother me replying.... I'm not the grammar police but then again I'm just a newbie with sat boxes so I know nothing and also crap at grammar as I'm too lazy to type it in a post.

    I have a daughter going through primary school at the moment and I am amazed at how much effort is put into her english and maths. The problem is with the education system and how children are now assessed and graded, especially at my daughters age. Children are now assessed and graded against other children in their area rather than nationally. This has the problem of having a child from town one being told they are at the standard they would be expected to be at and a child from town two being told they are progressing better than the standard. In reality however, the child from town one is doing much better than the child from town two because the benchmark in town two is lower.

    I would agree that no one is perfect however some posts are terrible. It doesn't take very long to read what has been typed and make corrections. As for having a life, I have a very good one indeed thank you :-)

    I'm usually put off by people with shitty attitudes who think they know everything & have to have the last word.

    Annoys me when people post a question thread and then go on to include next to no information while demanding an immediate answer.

    my pet hate is the people who don't bother updating the thread with whether an answer has solved their problem or not. This is what helps people in the future and prevents repeated posting of the same old questions.
    ..... and it also doesn't hurt to click the 'thanks' or 'like' button if someone helped you. It is more likely that they'll help in the future if they feel their efforts are appreciated.

    I have dyslexia so I am always using spell checker but for some reason it is not working on Firefox but does in chrome? I have the ext. for Firefox. Chrome just keeps getting upset and falls over all of the time. I agree that some posts are poor but most of the time peeps are uptight and want an answer NOW! HOWEVER I do wish they at least tell us what the problem is and what they are using and plus what they have done so far. THEN have the courtesy to tell us it has worked at the very least. Maybe make them put their set up in SIG as a standard option so everyone can see it?
    Just look at the woosh support thread the same 4 questions are asked time and again and again and again! Woosh released a monster on that thread.
    Do not ignore those that have tried and failed but by all means leave the ones that just want you to fix it for them. BTW how do I put a N Line on?

    You get a hammer and hit your box but make sure you do it until the casing crumples.

    There's only one member that's aloud a hammer and don't think he's about to share it

    I don't see the point off this post. its a forum. its not an English class. we are here to help user's with there tech problems, and not lose then on there first post, just because you are not happy with there punctuation.

    your first involvement upset a lot of members here with trying to get vet statues very fast in all means possible, but you have still maintained your rank colour green has maybe now just a member.

    Why should it matter where we are?

    It was never my intention to reach the rank of 'vet' by all means possible and it was definitely never my intention to become a statue. What would that achieve in the digital world? I saw so many 'introduce yourself' posts being made and thought it would be nice for someone to actually reply to them. Until the post was created about my posting, I had no idea how many posts were required to reach vet status.

    Not 100% sure what you mean there!
