I don't tend to bother with stack overflow. The solutions are usually too technical, not to mention the fact that most of the questions that I have found have not been answered as they were marked as a duplicate lol.
parsadev803yI'm just wondering why some people on stack overflow are like that, they just hit when you post a question, seriously, all of them were just bunch of newbies some days.
BRO, STOP SAYING "THIS QUESTION IS STUPID OR A DUPLICATE", IF YOU THINK THE Q DOESN'T WORTH YOUR TIME, JUST GO!
JayH393yI like SO but some of the community is harsh to newcomers. Just yesterday I saw a question that was down-voted within a minute of being posted because it didn't provide enough detail. Of course the poster updated their question then, but the down-vote stayed. "Welcome to Stack Overflow, we're here to help! BUT YOU BETTER NOT FUCK UP!!"
suprano38913yThis is sad and funny at the same time. 😞😂😂
@parsadev If they followed what you suggest, we would not have the world's largest curated Q/A site which is basically the go-to place to search for answers but a mix and mash of wannabe programmers writing shit about everything without knowing, and it would all be a jumbled up space and nothing would work.
@cervantes01 what do you even mean? It's literally a site for technical answers, so what did you expect? Btw SO also has forums for non technical stuff like for authors, mythology, space and stuff
jonhyfun7173y@phreakyphoenix sometimes i have a big system with some crazy out of the box logic and i just want to do something specific, but that specific thing is automatically mentally tagged by the users as: Just a newbie programmer trying to implement something in the wrong place and they just keep asking why everytime. I dont want to explain my giant system just to learn how to use some function "where it shouldnt be"
I atleast, when i stumble upon a question like that, i explain how to do and why its wrong or what could you do
