    codingforums feedback

    I just wanted to throw this out there as a general "pat on the back"
    I joined CF not even 3 months ago and I feel one word... impressed. I think the general atmosphere is great. I feel for the most part active users here are very helpful and knowledgeable. I think when someone posts incorrect information it is quickly identified and resolved and everyone is that much the better for it. I think it is great to have a pool of people from various backgrounds and even though sometimes things may get "heated" everyone seems to maintain professionalism. I love forums and using them but I often find myself "opting" out as the usually become slam fests and bash contests. I have not experienced that here (for the most part- and it seems to be dealt with swiftly). I just want everyone who reads this to:
    (if you are user) know that I like working with you to resolve your issues and mine and I find most everyone I interact with to be knowledgeable and helpful
    (if you are mod) kudos on keeping this place professional and not throwing in everyone's face that you have "god power" here
    (if you are owner/creator (sry idk who you are or how to find out)) tons of kudos for creating a kickin forum for people to come and grow intelectually
    (if you are potential "user") check it out and read through the posts- you'll find a lot of helpful people here and a non-condescending environment

    well that's all I have to say- just my thoughts on the matter

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    yep, I generally agree

    sitepoint is my favourite forum and this one is a close second.

    I think that in any forum where you have a large number of members, human nature being what it is there is a high probability of there being at least a small number of members who, while hiding behind an anonymous username, will cowardly resort to attempting to intimidate, abuse or tell lies about other members.

    Luckily I have a very thick skin when it comes to childish attempts at intimidation from others and since what anyone else thinks of me or my posts in an environment like this cannot possibly be of any interest or consequence to me at all, the way I deal with it is to let others play whatever little games they might be playing and simply let out a little more rope. More often than not their immaturity eventually gets them banned for at least short periods if not permanently.

    Overall, codingforums gets 9 out of 10

    How is it CodingForum’s fault that you have a personal problem with a member? That could happen to you on any forum, even on Sitepoint. That shouldn’t be any objective reason for a worse grade.

    Thanks for the laud, by the way, alykins. And the owner of this site is George, a. k. a. WA.

    If you're talking to me, I didn't say it was. Btw, I don't have any issues with anyone. I just call things as I see them and if someone doesn't like it they sometimes try to throw some mud at me and I just posted why it can't be of any consequence to me.

    Can you post a thread name and post number from anywhere where you believe I have attacked anyone or abused anyone?
    I have never attacked or abused anyone in any forum and so I don't have any problems with anyone . But that is not to say that some others might struggle to cope with my or other peoples' views or ways of doing things and so, as a result of their immaturity and cowardice while hiding behind a username, react with abuse and telling lies and eventually get themselves banned at least for a short period as has happened recently

    From my point of view, sitepoint get 9.5 out of 10 and as I posted earlier codingforums get 9 out of 10

    I never said that you attacked or abused anyone. How do you come to the conclusion that I implied that?
    And how must a forum be to get 10 out of 10?

    because you asked, and I assume it was directed at me and not the op

    .

    I don't see how you could come to the conclusion that I have a personal problem with any member unless you thought I have attacked or abused anyone.

    I just explained why I don't have any issues with any members but it appears some members might have issues with me and other members though.

    It was directed at you but having personal problems with someone doesn’t automatically mean that you have attacked or abused anyone unless you automatically perceive it as such (which you obviously did). In that case you might wanna think about your view on the world around you. Personal problems are simply issues between one person and at least one other person, in whichever way.

    no problem

    If your opinion is that I have issues with other members that's ok. You're entitled to an opinion just like everyone else.

    So we can just agree to disagree on this one.

    If someone has an issue with me, that is there problem to deal with and in no way is a concern or problem for me since I maintain total anonymity. So whatever their issue is, it cannot possibly be of any consequence to me.


    Like I said earlier, I just explained why I don't have any issues with any other members. From my point of view, people can say what they like where like about me and since I maintain total anonymity, what others post about me cannot possibly be of any significance or consequence to me . The only thing others might think about is risking being banned if a moderator deems they broke any rules in doing so.

    But I'm not convinced you actually believe I have an issue with anyone since you haven't mentioned any names. The only way you can possibly convince me you are telling the truth is to post the names of those in your opinion I should have an issue with.

    Maybe you could post the names of those in your opinion I should have a problem with and try to explain how you think I should see those members as a problem for me personally at this stage of my life, given I maintain total anonymity and can now do what I like when I like (provided it is legal of course ), but I can give you a 100% guarantee you are not able to.

    No-one has any issues. The fact that you seem to appear to love trolling is your own problem, no-one elses. Take this thread, for example. That initial post you made in this thread served no purpose other than trolling. If you have some form of insecurity complex, deal with it somewhere else, not on here. Honestly not interested, and this isn't the place for it.

    It's actually starting to become tiresome reading a thread where you've posted, because it seems to be a 50/50 probability that there will be some attempt at sarcasm, condescension or similar from yourself, and if it's not your place to 'code for free' or 'tidy up anyones code', (as you seem to love pointing out to anyone and everyone), don't you think you're actually in the wrong place?

    bullant, I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to prove with the distortion of what I said. But you still haven’t answered my question as to what would be necessary for CF to get 10 out of 10, in your opinion.

    I don't think I have distorted anythng at all. All I said is that I don't have any personal issues/problems with any members and posted the reasons why in reply to your question
    How is it CodingForum’s fault that you have a personal problem with a member?
    and your opinion
    Personal problems are simply issues between one person and at least one other person, in whichever way.

    I'm not sure how I personally would rate a 10 can be important to anyone.

    I'm helping someone else at the moment, so if I have some time later on I will post my criteria

    nope, not at all

    If your opinion is that I must provide free code at everyone's beck and call then maybe talk to the moderators because I am not on anyone's payroll here and so I am happy to provide free code and help, as I have done in the past, where/when I feel it is appropriate if I have time and it is within the forum rules.

    In this thread Fou-Lu (Super Moderator) says

    This isn't an open forum to get free code, this is a forum to help solve issues with code. If you are looking for code from scratch, I will suggest checking one of the paid forums for assistance.
    which I totally agree with. So if you don't agree with Fou-Lu's comment, maybe take it up with him/her rather than waste my time.

    You have no concerns with inflicting that on others. Now, are you going to answer Stephan's question or not?
