    Often times i see posts with 50 views but no replies. I open the post and it's gibberish. Either too vague or using words no one understands. I'm not speaking of any language barrier either.
    "How do I make this?" -no example given, nothing!
    "Need help with this" -file won't open, no file attached, not divulging the file type, where the file came from, etc.
    "can I use this gizmo with my printer?" Uhhh...what gizmo? What model printer do you have etc.
    "Why won't this or that work?" what program are you using? What are the steps to reproduce the fault?

    If you want help you're going to need every bit of information. Example in the design world I get all the time. "Can you send over a copy of that logo you made for me last year?" Is that all the info you need> NO!

    I know just what you're thinking and I wouldn't do that if I were you.

    Being a sign maker is 50% mind reading, 25% anger management, 15% skill, and 10% alcohol
