    I would try to help if I can. But I must agree mostly te questions have been asked and answered before. Put in a little more effort and do a search. Most of the time you will get what you are looking for.

    that's why can go for the AG (anything goes) outings where there is less equipment talk.
    back then in 03, went for a seed outing...now scared liao.
    some of the pros there are a bit airhead...
    worse still is you newbie say their photos not nice...their face turn a bit "black black"already.
    what a waste of time...took off halfway before the outing was over.
    quite pissed that day, went home delete account registered in 03.
    since then i make up my mind never to be a canon user.

    best is go out take photo with a friend.
    no need to ALT F4..."see no evil" can already

    isn't it have so many sticky threads in newbie corners already? why need to have another sticky thread to tell people how to go to other sticky threads?

    and if someone really bother to read the sticky threads or faq before make a posting to ask questions, TS won't bother to start this thread already.

    Yes, people don't read anymore. The worst thing anybody can do to a newbie is to serve up information on a silver platter.....

    Yes, I was a newbie before but made my progress with the search function...

    Oh, yes, I was a newbie too, when at the time, there wasn't anything that call "computer" or "internet", only National Library.

    "i want a lens A B C which is good?"
    "i hear experts say D is best?"

    There's nothing with asking but if a class of 30 starts asking the same question at different point in time; you bet the teacher will go ballastic as well, especially when the answer was made known to the whole class before.

    yes the problem is we all dont come into photography together diff age diff people come into CS everytime you dont expect everyone to know whats happening the least you can do is link them to previous threads and not screw them

    However not everyone starts going to the same class at the same time. Simple solution will be just ignore the thread.

    Since can waste time and post, " do a search, google your best friend, blah blah blah", why not just provide answer or just keep your fingers away from typing the above.
