Why is everyone here so anti-responsive? Answered

It seems every time I ask for tips on arranging my stereo or anything related to MY stereo (I have good shit, just don't know how to arrange things well), no one wants to help me and they just ignore me, I find it rather rude as I know it's intentional, it could be about anything else (explosives..explosives,..and maybe grenades) and people literally flock. How insaulting people.

The reason is that there are a lot more 12-13 year olds here who are obsessed about knex and explosives than there are people who are experts are sound systems.

"12-13 year olds here who are obsessed about knex and explosives" I cracked up at that...so true...so true.

It's true, but I'm 13, dislike Knex, and would much rather just strike a match than do a firecracker or other e. Of course I'm also no expert at sound systems, so, can't help you there.

I thank you for coming by though, that's the problem, these guys are trying to tell me I'm being a dickhead and I'm being impatient, I've got posts on my personal page that say 1 month ago and 0 replies.

Just pointing out that your only forum topic with zero replies is statement, not a question. But I do understand the point you are making, and I think Weissensteinburg (Ha! didn't even look and I spelled it right!) put it best.

That's probably because I just went through them and deleted them, I could kindly ask ewihelm to pull them out of the trash directoy if you don't belive me.

You do have a point, but there are the few knowledgable people like you that I'm asking help with.

If you need help with a stereo system, go to a forum that caters to home-entertainment electronics enthusiasts.

You cant honestly expect a post about a stereo to generate as much interest as a post on explosives on this site.

And how exactly do you "know" thats its intentional?

In case you haven't noticed, this thread got a fair amount of attention, so were not ignoring you just to be rude. Some people may however ignore your posts if they:

  • uninterested in the topic
  • not knowledgeable about the topic
  • can't understand the question due to poor writing/grammar/spelling
  • don't have anything useful to add to the discussion.

So don't take it personally if you don't get a lot of responses.

I know for a fact there are a lot of people with knowledge, and I am being specific and I'd imagine most people understand. And I figured, this is a website, a jack of all trades, so why not ask?

Well, you could try using CAPS and some exclamation points, and maybe hype things up a bit more. e.g. "TOTAL BAD-ASS STEREO PROBLEM!!!! HE______ELP!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!" L

Man you are such a cry baby! Your posts really dont clearly paint the best picture that one can give any advice on without asking questions. Even when they do you immediately poo-poo it and bitch no one will help you! Try being a little more detailed and patient. Some of us "older folks" don't spend all day on here or check in every day. If ya don't like things here....go somewhere else. I responded to your sub woofer question, but now I am hesitant to respond further if you are gonna be so disrespectful to the community here. I responded to your cooling a Mac question and didn't see any posts from you of thanks or any follow up. Why not? Thats insulting! Lex

. Ditto. . . Learn to ask specific questions and provide as much info as possible concerning what you are trying to accomplish and the resources you have available. . Don't be such a dickhead when someone gives a response that you don't like. If their suggestion will not work in your situation, politely thank them for their thoughtful, helpful comments that they took the time to write and explain why it won't work for you - then maybe someone else will have a better suggestion.

How specific can you be? I'm pretty dam sure I've been specific even to the point I thought people would just pass by due to the long explanations of questions. But sure if I'm not "being specific enough" then I suppose I'll just be Extra mcfuckin specific (no really, you told me to, don't blame me when the gates of hell blast open in a few days).

Well I haven't seen anything in my coments thingy on my page when you first log in, I'll have to check, sorry if I didn't thank you, my bad. I'm not being a cry baby, there have been plenty of things that I have asked and gone into maybe even a little too much detail just to be as clear as humanly possible and waited months and there still isn't replies to them.

I agree, his attitude here is not generally conducive to others offering assistance. Also, apparently, it's just me but he seems to be hung up on 4 letter filth. I expect this will set off a tirade of such language.

I am thinking most users think this: "Oh, someone else will comment on this, its not my job." OR, "WTF is this? I have no clue what this is, or how it is supposed to work, I will just not comment."

maybe people just dont know, stereos can be relativly complex and some people just can be bothered to type long comments

I believe that there are a lot of good people here.. And I'm sure that if they know how to help, they would help..gladly..

It's just so happen that the folks that have extensive knowledge in acoustics didn't stumble upon your posts..

Plus its also the case of open question against very specific narrowed-down questions..Your Ideas for making a ciggerete Case?? post managed to get a decent amount of response simply because it is a simple question open to a variety of responses..

You may get your very specific answer by asking very specific question, but you also leave very little room for responses. Except to those who have really specific knowledge on the subject..

Nobody's trying to insult you..so now, you better go and get rid of those dead bodies under your bed..

Lol, I thought it was a pretty simple question "What can I do to improve my stereo qaulity, can I make my subwoofer sound punchier", I can pretty much answer the questions myself, but I was looking for opinions.

I think part of it may be that casual instructablers don't visit the forums much. You could try looking around at the sound and stereo related instructables, finding knowledgable users and then PMing them a "pretty please". I'd recommend a set of two PMs, actually. First a compliment with an innocuous question, then if you get a reply, a specific (specific, I say!) question with your stereo equipment.
