    Yes, I have encountered some rude comments (my definition of being rude is also pretty wide ). However, when I started out as a newbie in this forum some years ago, most of the forummers are very helpful and nice to my newbie questions. Of course, back then, the resources and discussions on this forum are not as many as now, and Google is not as popular as Yahoo. LOL

    Perhaps with the much larger member base now, you have a greater variety of forummers, rather than a smaller, close-knitted and friendly group.

    Most important is you get some good replies to answer your questions or at least direct you to the correct resource, amidst the meaningless ones.

    like that, it is very difficult to share opinions on someone's work.

    some people don't post for commentary, they post to stoke their ego, then when it gets dashed, they just emo and either stop posting, or make sure that no one gets to comment.

    i say, good riddance!

    no, the best ones are those that spend 90% of their clubsnapping lives pointing out that "google is your best friend" doesn't help the threadstarter none (when it does).

    the irony is that when it is pointed out that their post doesn't help the threadstarter either, none of them ever reply again.

    yes, but i don't mind being told that the question is stupid.

    there is nothing worse than failing to recognise or acknowledge your own stupidity when it is there, because you will never, ever admit the problem, and you will never get ahead because in your mind, you are the bomb.

    let's all be objective, when it comes to others, and ourselves.

    Yes. Many rude people in Clubsnap. The rudest ones are those who take the worst pictures... but post so much rubbish until they qualify as Senior Members. They are here to stoke their ego, and not really to learn...

    Sometime, the same question have been posted again and again by a new account users when the answer is easily found in a previous thread or a simple search in google. It feels that the person is lazy to find an answer himself and choose to ask others.

    What seems stupid to you might be tough question to starters. I don't mind answering if user have put some afford in finding an answer first.

    i advocate the creation of FAQs as a skeleton for clubsnap. but this is going to a mass effort from many people and with support by the admin. i will say at this point of time, there is some effort but this need to be more emphasized.

    if someone who have the expertise can't be bothered to assist in a FAQ, but would rather spend the bulk of his text to ridicule others, i personally do not think highly of such people, and his or her talent in photography will not be able to amend for the shortcoming in their character. i will rather leave these people out of the circle as there are enough people with talent and decent character.

    I am not sure about ridicule others. But if such repeated post is spotted, I post some link to past similar question or online source which answer his question. Even so, there are people who ask the same things again as if they never click on the link to read up.

    The problem lies in that I or some other CSer found some source to answer what he asked, but some of those who ask (a small number I've seen) doesn't even make effort to click the link and read whats there, the questioner just wants people to try summarise the long answer into simple point for him to read and understand. The thing I am trying to point out is pure laziness.

    Well... there was this senior member who posted a set of badly taken pictures of Blythe dolls, taken with his EF50mm f/1.2L. When asked what he was trying to prove, he replied that he was trying to showcase the capability of his very expensive lens. When fellow members told him, one by one, that his pictures were bad, he said they were not his usual pictures, but it only showed the capability of the lens. I asked him if could show some nice pictures he took with the lens, to which he replied, quite rudely, that he is not obliged to show anyone any pictures.

    I did a search on his nick, only to find pictures of badly taken landscapes, etc.

    But this particular member, goes around giving photography advice like he is very pro. When anyone dares to correct him, he will attack them rather rudely.

    So... how does someone like that become a senior member? Quite simply by posting a lot. Being senior member in this forum is just an indication that the member is very active. You will notice that the best photographers in this forum are not senior members... because they spend more time taking pictures than making posts in this forum.

    I strongly believe that there is no need to be rude in a forum. If anyone feels that the question is stupid, then don't answer it. Someone else who has the time and common courtesy will answer it.

    Take a look at the reputable forums overseas... They are so much more constructive, encouraging and helpful.

    I think the mods should delete replies that say things like "Can't you google it?"... "This has been answered before, go search for it.".. etc. These replies simply don't help.

    If you don't have the time to answer the 'stupid' questions, then don't. There is no excuse for being rude.

    No. Not yet, at least. I'm always extra careful which thread I post my comments on. And even if I have a burning question and desperately want to start a thread about it, I never dare to. I'd rather Google. A flaw of mine which I can't completely get rid of is I tend to take negative comments personally and get all hot about it, so I just avoid the avertable.
