Un-intelligible QUESTIONS12 Replies
It is so frustrating and annoying when people ask a question or ask for information and think that everyone knows what they are talking about!!! (eg - see 'Zones' under Financial & Legal) There are AI rules and regulations for responding to postings and, if not applied, get deleted but there are non which explain how to ask a question!!! Maybe Admin or someone could suggest or give guidelines, please? Many people forget to give their location or the name of their nearest large town, some even give inches and feet in a metric country, others forget to say they live on the border of XXX and XXX (they should be permitted by AI to post on both regional sites) etc. This is not the first and it won't be the last but why don't Original Posters think about who is going to read their question before posting? Most questions are asked in the emotion of the moment of desperation but, for goodness sake, think for 5 mins or sleep on it and then ask your questions which require the basic information so that people can help as near to the facts as they can. There is no member edit facility on here but there should be one or a priority deletion button with the reason from AI if they don't understand either!. The OP could then re-phrase and re-post with a simple, clear, maxi, precise, fully-described public question on how/when/why/wherefore instead of giving other essential information half-way through the 'discussion' which changes the whole subject. This would also avoid mis-information and the situation of 'helpful' or knowledgeable posters, with their time-consuming research and answers, frequently being accused of being 'off-topic' and then being deleted through no fault of their own!
