"my 2 cents"
"i'm a newbie"

my 0.2cents (do they even realise that its actually not even worth anything???)
my 0.2 dollars worth (do they even realise that its 20 cents?)
my 0.02 dollars worth (in the first place cant you just press one '2' button, why need to so mafan and press '0' and '.'?)

my x cents worth, where x is a random number.

trying to add their post count
dun even have fullstop
"There are other threads on this topic, read them before asking." "Please Google it you ask".
True that nothing is new under the sun and we can always google for information...but that defeats the point of having a forum, right? (And what fun is there in digging up a thread that ended 15 years ago?)
If not, everyone will just go RTFM; or go ask XMM whether they know the answer or not, instead of logging in to ClubSnap!
Feel free to disagree, that just...My 75 dollars, 23 cents' (excluding GST) worth.
Merry met. wtf someone think they're LOTR is it?!
Opinions are like A-holes. Everyone's got one.
And, when pointed out that basic literacy is to be expected at a university, they start complaining about "elitism".
Or you're going to a workshop on image processing, but serious discussions never materialize because 50% of the participants demand a step-by-step explanation on the concepts of addition and multiplications.
Maybe such people should take their primary school education first.
In the end, it boils down to what league you want Clubsnap to be in. Do you see Clubsnap as a serious discussion forum, or as a toddler playgroup?
I dunno what the intention of the founders was but IMHO: Depends where the thread is.
There are some elite runner's forums that do exactly as this forum does. Most areas for serious discussion and then an area to unwind to find out about yr fellow forumers.....a "toddler's playgroup area"....or perferably a "fun zone" where you hang out with fellow CSers and talk abt nothing.
Of course you can have such a forum, but, to turn your question around, since when has Clubsnap become a forum exclusive to clueless newbies? Just as newbies will complain about the elitism of more knowledgeable fellows, you can expect that people at a level where they are looking for discussions with some more depth will get frustrated rather quickly. Chances are, they won't bother answering newbie questions anymore, which in the end is the loss of the less experienced.
A big hodgepodge of all levels in one place doesn't work, unless everyone makes an attempt to meet somewhere in the middle. That may mean dumbing down posts to make them palatable to newbies, but for newbies it also means putting in the effort on doing their homework and post well-researched questions.
"Your photo CMI" but never said how to improve .... or
"I won't engage u if I'm the person" but never said what can be improve .....
These are trash comments that I saw in other people's post that got commented.
I find it's crap. If u want to comment, share ya experience or advise so that the person who post can learn n improve. Show ya work so that others can learn n look up to.
So what if u are the best photographer? U don't deserve any respect. It's either u r too proud to share or u don't want others to improve.
