Title: Why is the Dev-/Admin-Team sometimes annoyed?
Post by: Joseph Fung on December 26, 2001, 10:12:31 AM
Because we are working on YaBB SE without getting any money from it and some people are just too lazy to read through the boards/faq to find answers on their own, before they start complaining.

Another reason could be, that some users are treating us Devs/Admins like we owe them something.   ::)

I have to admit that search feature is pretty cool. although I found selecting search by "phrase" seemed to pick up more words that I look for.

If you have a problem with the search function, I suggest you search around to find the answer ;)

I don't get it?

I assume your talking about my above post complimenting on how well the phrase search feature works? perhaps I worded that wrong?

no worries. I was just trying to express how well the search function does work. I guess getting people to use it more often first before asking the question is the hardest thing to do.

So I can sympathize with the admins/moderators when an obvious question could have been picked up using the search feature.

It is probably the least used function on any forum, yet it is the most uselfull!  ;D

Even searching doesn't always yield the results one may be looking for. ;) Especially if one has not tried the right combination of words. Mind you, that is not a complaint about the search system whatsoever, simply a plain fact about search systems in general. :)

Anyway.. if I see that someone else has posted a question that has already been answered, I generally assume that their search attempt was unsuccessful and I try to point them in the right direction if I can do so. I certainly agree 100% that its not the developers' responsibility to do so, and suggest that other non-Dev forum members try to do so as well. That way everyone is happy and the Developers don't have to be annoyed as often. ;D

I use the search all the time.  But sometise others call what I;m looking for something else.

A completed manual with all th finer things done in YaBB SE would be a nice thing.  :-)

yeah i agree, you guys take a lot of poo from everyone. I personally search atleast 5 pages for a thread that i am attempting to post first. ANd if i dont see it, i search, and then i post. Most people don't do that since they have no clue what a bitch it is organizin a forum can be.

For me this swings both ways.

Being bitten by noobies is not what the experts deserve at all. They work their socks off to try and give a good product without any real reward.
But then at the same time there are noobie novices like me who know that they need something but don't necessarily know what it is or what to call it (I call it the Thingy-Syndrome).

So,
To all noobies, give the experts a break, they're here to help and are doing the best they can with the resources they have available to them.

To all experts, please give us a noobies a break too. We're trying to learn, but it isn't easy when you don't know what "Thingy" you need, where to find a "Thingy", or even what to call your "Thingy".

:)
