I have noted a rise in the "tell me" or "i need" posts that some members are posting where manners seem to have gone missing.
If asking for help or advice a please or thank-you goes a long way in encouraging other members to reply.
Please remember that the members who give out advice and tips do so freely,without reward and in their own time. So a little appreciation of that by some would be welcomed.
my post/reply is because I have just joined and did not know where to go in here to go to say thanks for the general welcome message I got So I have stumbled/landed here-so thanks!
hopefully at worst this is considered as stupidity rather than bad manners
I think this 'instant' approach is also a reflection of the modern electronic society. It does seem that whenever someone sends a text or e-mail they do expect an 'instant' response knowing the recepient is likely to be at a PC or Smart Phone.There does seem to be a lot of people who suddenly have an issue with their car, do an internet search and get directed to here and want to know NOW how to fix it.
If that is how they want to do it - fair enough - but seems to me to be the wrong way round in doing thing in a nice way.
I'd say that the vast majority of forums gain members this way - it's primarily what they're are for. Otherwise the forums would be no more than twitter, with a bunch of folk posting the minutia of their everyday lives for eachother to read.:hurl:There does seem to be a lot of people who suddenly have an issue with their car, do an internet search and get directed to here and want to know NOW how to fix it.
Me to, dont no anything can make me normal. The Thanks button is there but it seems a lot of people dont know what its for. One other thing why do people ask questions on a topic but not give reply to weather they sorted the problem and how they did it. :forehead:I agree too and by saying so helps me get my posts up to 100, so I can be 'normal'.:d [it's another story...]
Will you please thank me for the paint..:rofl: :devil:I notice on some New Threads this evening, people are forgetting their manners, can we all start being a little more courteous on the forum to our fellow readers - I know you want answers !
