Question for the staff

I have one question for ya. Why are you involved in this forum that is here to help people out with winamp and shoutcast if all you are going to do is be rude to people that ask questions? No matter what you do there are still going to be people that can't find what they are looking for with the search. This is the most uncustomer freindly place I have ever been to. If you are so tired of people asking stupid questions then why are you still here? I just don't understand.

Just my 2 cents and it probly doesn't mean anything to some of you.

Not trying to stir crap up. I just wanted to know.

which staff????? everyone here is just as you a user.
those that help out with question are all unpaid volunteers and yes when somebody asks a question and the answer can be found in the FAQ thread or the Toolbox, it is obvious they didn't search for it first.

there is an unwritten law , you first check out the sticky threads, than you use the search functions this forum provides and if you can't find any answers than you post your question.

if somebody asks for the 100000 time what the line "cannot see your station from the internet" is you get pissed because there is lots to be found about that in the FAQ and in other threads.

just 2 cents.

Basically what he said ^^

I especially get pissed at people like that who can't help themselves. They expect you to take their hand and do everything for them. I deal with these sorts of people everyday. And seeing as I am not admin or mod here, I can let my true fury upon the victim ^^

Regards,

i remember some dude who offered payment for the help that would lead to the setup and config for an internet radio station.
after reading Heatradio's basic guide to shoutcasting he did install and config it within the hour.

It's not even hard at all. Here's how I am:

I have zero tolerance for idiots and extremely stupid people. If you dont know if you have a router, you SERIOUSLY dont need a station. Same applies to people who just say "HELP ME!! HOW i set up radio?"

yeah, i'm back.

Good points.

This just seemed like an unfreindly place. Your replies to this thread were not expected actually. I was expecting some fowl language.

I can understand your points of view.

maybe when ya say search the forum, they think you mean read through everything... LOL !!

maybe they don't realize there is a search button to streamline the process.

i totally agree, i hate answering same question a million times.
and how much did the users pay for the software or the help already ?

in most cases zero.

why would you take something that is free,
then start demanding help to make it work ??

ask, if someone says search, then search.
if what you want isn't there or you still didn't find it,
at least you realize that your question can still be answered,
but "i don't feel like reading what all these people wrote, just tell me"
will NEVER work.

that is the handout, not hand up

my .05, keep the change
