Ya know I don’t get this issue that much. I feel like it was a problem at one point and people went on about it so much that all question askers are now aware of it and make sure to not do it

More than once I came across my own post asking for help years prior with no responses while trying to google a new solution to my problem.

At least with those, you know there is a solution. It’s the unanswered ones that haunt my nightmares.

This is not just programming but anything tech related. The frustration is real.

Is there a sub for asking question about programming that is actually active though?

I was writing code for Access97 in the last century (just), using VB with embedded SQL. One of my lovely custom functions would only work once per session, then nothing. I asked for help on various fora, but in truth it was a bug. Job finished, moved on, never touched Access again.

For at least the next 10 years, I’d get two or three emails a year “Did you ever find a way of working round that problem?”.

There should be a disincentive for not posting the solution. Like the Internet can visit your house for the solution until you publish it online.

Can we have a “marked as duplicate” flair for posts like this one?

Let’s all here celebrate and hail the guys who end their threads where no one provided any help by a “Figured it out, just in case it might be of interest for anyone some time in the future, here’s what went wrong, [proceeds with *a full 10 paragraph-long explanation with proper official doc references, grammar, and formatting with the occasional joke*].

# Hail !

All the times, when I search for a solution and found it as easy as eating a piece of cake, I can tell which level of expertise I am, from the the thread…

I feel like the only forum that is helpful is Cisco. Including a copy and paste of the longest config in history that you only need one line out of.

Even though I’m not a programmer i can still relate because when your fucking video game keeps crashing and you have to go on a god damn crusade to find a thread that fixed the issue and posted the solution

Just use jquery man, much easier.

I’m the kind of person who’ll read/copy code from SO and then think to myself “surely this is too long and inefficient”. A never ending rabbit hole.

I’ve found that usually means it’s a stupid problem, and I should be ashamed.

I found that a worse kind of answer is
“I was trying to do X, but I found that I can just do ‘infinitely easier version of X that is not compatible with what you’re trying to do’ so it’s solved!” 😀

Ha. All I ever find are threads where a solution is there clear as day, and all the other posters are thankful saying it worked for them, but then it doesn’t work for me.

Have you considered biting the computer so it stops misbehaving and fixes the code?

This is honestly me right now. My MS store refuses to install things with error 80070005 and no fixes I can find have fixed it. And it’s happening a week after I reinstalled windows BECAUSE OF THIS ERROR.

Dualis-mentis

It’s even worse if you do find that error but the answer is by some angry twat on stack overflow blasting the person that asked the question for being shit at programming but provides no solution to the problem in the end 🙂

That’s why whenever I am asking a question looking for something, I make sure to update with the answer to said question when and where I can. Gotta help out my homies in the future.
