Re: Ok, I have to ask....Rant coming...

Also keep in mind not everyone reads every "welcome" link as well. Most people are so excited to play this awesome game that they just post the question and wait for a response.

Yeah it is in the rule book 99% of the time but sometimes clarification is needed. But some of the questions I do ask my self, did they read the rule book??

Re: Ok, I have to ask....Rant coming...

Is venting ok? Someone should start a thread about that. Oh, I guess you did...

I don't mind someone asking for a more conversational answer than you get just by reading the rule book. But if I get the sense that they didn't look at it at all, I just leave it for someone else to answer. And you can, too...

Re: Ok, I have to ask....Rant coming...

But getting a response from an online forum is so much cooler than reading the rules! Seriously some people are either too lazy or just want to get some PR, sometimes it is bad PR though...

I have no problem with semi-literate or mostly-lazy people popping in here to ask whether you can attack through a battlement or whether Climb x2 prevents falling damage. Most of the time it's people joining the site, posting one or two times, then leaving. I do not hold against the 1000th person asking Question X that it's been asked 999 times before, I see part of the forum's role as ambassador for the hobby.

A couple posters seem to exist only to ask irritating or repetitive questions, but their numbers are small (two, off the top of my head), and they can be ignored, humored, or mocked as your mood dictates.

But you are ranting, and are doing a credible job of it, and I hope you feel better now.

Bravo bravo for the post. I think this sums up my feelings.

Re: Ok, I have to ask....Rant coming...

The real power in the community lies in the collective expertise of its members.

I think it probably IS faster to post a question than to RTFM. As an added bonus, one gets the benefits of multiple perspectives, and the disambiguation offered by peer review.

This is a good point. I do sometimes see old dogs not only answer a question but then offer an expanded opinion or strategy use that supports their answer and informs the reader.

YES, YES I DO!

I am always polite to these folks (or try to be) for all the reasons you and GB have stated. But I am SO glad to have this chance to get it off my chest.

I have a feeling that sometimes these "newcomers" are actually people on this site too scared to ask the question themselves, so they make a new username to ask the question so as not to get neg-rep.

That's actually a violation of the user agreement and is easy enough to figure out (for the most part) who's doing it. I it's believe one of the ways to get banned.

Re: Ok, I have to ask....Rant coming...

I always read each booklet twice, just because I almost always miss something. I got most of the rules, but until last year at NHD, I did not know that fliers take disengagement the moment they fly, which I think makes a lot of sense.
