As anyone who reads my posts knows, I can be as snarky as the next guy. However, as much as I'd love to post a comment with a TinyURL to a "Let Me Google That For You" page on pumpkin recipes, I've just got to wonder anymore how we can make Instructables as inviting a community as it was when I stumbled across it years ago.

I like Sean's idea regarding related suggestions prior to submission. That would not only prevent the hundreds of duplicate questions asked here, but also maybe help take the edge off us folks trudge endlessly through questions to find one that hasn't been answered yet.

Or maybe I've just momentarily gone soft.

When I get sick of answering the same questions I blow them off til I'm in a more generous mood. some people aren't internet savvy or are new online and just need more hand holding. My pastor got US interested in the internet and I still have to hold his hand for a lot of things. it's been ten years and he just started sending us emails.

Did you take a look at those over on the right?

How about these?

Well, obviously this Guest didn't do either of those things. That would be much more work and effort than waiting for the rest of us to do it for him/her/it.

,Oooh, wups, my sarcasm is showing....

No; your superiority and arrogance is showing, because you are a clever man.

As seandogue says, they won't see the right hand column until they post the question. Yes!! I DO know the informationis there if we look for it, and then again, there are masses of sites with pumpkin recipes, and on most everything else. It isn't a Federal offence to ask here though is it?

Someone asked a question is all. No big deal.

I suggest you follow the Answers for a few weeks, then come back here. As the most egregious example, try reading this topic, and in particular count the number of identical questions asked in the link posted there.

And I suggest that an obviously highly intelligent human being like yourself gets of his high horse and and stops his totally unnecessary condescension.

I repeat: it is not a Federal offence to ask a question. It is surely beneath your intellect to resort to so-called 'sarcasm'?

I could be wrong.....

And don't attempt to teach me how to navigate this site. Just try to be an equal part of this community, as you are in this world.

That might be hard to come to terms with, but it's true.

I should add that whatever 'flagging' is,-it would be more valid if aimed at cause and not effect.

Just thought I'd add that, because I'm unsure whether being a "Pro" carries special advantages.

Pumpkin cheesecake. (Thought the recipe I've used starts with canned pumpkin, I can't see any reason fresh wouldn't work.) Roast salted pumpkin seeds.

That's a good idea especially since Guest's who ask questions might not notice the Related list and might not even know about the instructables. And then there are the longtime members who are just to lazy to turn their head to the right or forget to, like me.
