"Dumb" and "Stupid" Newbie questions

Post by Rex L. Campbell.. » Sat, 26 Sep 1998 04:00:00



The only  dumb, stupid question a newbie could have is;  "a question not
asked"!

Best of luck to all those brave enough to venture into an art form that
requires six to twelve months of effort before one realizes the quality of
his or her creation!

Amen to that one!  It was my understanding that that's what this
newsgroup is for (partly.)

Please do not say your questions are "Dumb" or "Stupid."
What does that make us if we can not answer them???

After lurking here for quite a while, I posted a newbie type question here
not to long ago.  Got no response. Nada.  Made me feel a little dumb and
stupid.  Like I had crashed a private party.  Don't think I'll do it
again.

Well, in response to the person who complained of not having their newbie
question answered . . . it's possible that no one knew the answer to your
question, or it could be the same question that someone else recently
asked, and repeating the same answers can get a bit tiresome.  It seems
to me that everyone on this newsgroup is extremely helpful and willing to
share knowledge, try not to get too bummed out or take it so personally.  
What was your question?

Beth

I haven't had any trouble getting answers.  If you peruse the group often
then you can probably get your answers from someone else's questions.  I do.
As helpful as the group seems to be...I guess your question just got lost in
all the postings.  Just do it again.

Doug:

I have to agree with Beth. I have asked some pretty basic questions and have
received respectful answers. Have you read the FAQ. And if you still have
not got an answer to your query. E-mail me privately Maybe I know the
answer.....

Regards
Bill

What was the question?  Most of my questions have been answered when I post
them, and I just assume that the response to the few unanswered ones is "sorry,
we just don't know."  I've gotten some great advice from people via this
newsgroup, so don't give up!

We only answer the dumber questions. I guess yours didn't qualify. You
should try again : )
