      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

If people just give you the answers that doesn't help you understand anything. You need to do the research to answer those questions.

I did all the research I could for about 70 questions! And I found out most of the answers on the w3schools web site. Except for the 5 questions that I posted - I couldn't find any evidence to support the answers so I decided that I would post them to see if anybody else with more experience than me could help. Sometimes it's nice to be able to get some advice from a more experienced person and it also saves a lot of time. I could research those questions for another week and still not find the correct answers. That is why I posted them here! but it seems that nobody else has time to research them either. All I was looking for was perhaps a link to a page with each answer so I could go through the data to fully understand the questions and answers. What made you think I was just looking for quick answers? with no thought on understanding them fully? If everybody in the world had to do their own research for 'each and every question' there would be no need for 'forums' and the "forum moderator" would be out of a job, and you wouldn't have the opportunity to send me a 'ridiculous' comment like the one you just sent.

What made you think I was just looking for quick answers?

The fact that literally the only thing you posted was a series of questions and answers, with no other context or information about what you're doing, what you've done to try and research it, what you already know, what you don't understand, etc. Just a series of multiple choice questions as if the only thing you're looking for are the answers. That's what made me think the way I did.

 

If everybody in the world had to do their own research for 'each and every question' there would be no need for 'forums'

That's not true at all, there are plenty of forums where people engage in discussions instead of just simple Q&A.

 

the "forum moderator" would be out of a job

My unpaid volunteer job is in jeopardy, so I better answer your questions? OK then.

 

you wouldn't have the opportunity to send me a 'ridiculous' comment like the one you just sent.

Right. I'll go ahead and back out of this conversation and let the other members comment if they'd like to.

 

It never hurts to keep a respectful tone. Every single person has many sources of stress in their life. You don't need to take yours out on people whom you are asking for help.

Yes "It never hurts to keep a respectful tone" You should practice what you preach. I can feel the animosity in your words. (That's even without reading between the lines) Did it make you feel good to take your anger out on a member whom you have no respect for. Hope you feel better after getting that off your chest, it's not good to keep your anger bottled up! you know what I mean right? Obviously you don't have the intelligence to answer my "simple Q & A's". So i'll just do the research myself like you recommended. Thank's for all your help. And "please please please" Don't waste your time thinking of a witty comeback(I know that's what your thinking of right now, right?) - I don't even want to hear what you have to say. Enjoy your "unpaid volunteer job" because I can't see anybody ever giving you a 'real job' in the 'real world'. Especially when they realize "what you're really like" on the inside. It must be hard for you to keep your comments semi-appropriate, when you can't say what you really want to say. Try hitting a punching bag or something - that may help you with your aggressiveness.

You're projecting.

I had no anger to take out. It's unfortunate if you felt treated like that, but I don't think it reflects on me.

 

Obviously you don't have the intelligence to answer my "simple Q & A's".

Is that some sort of coded challenge to get an answer from me, or just an insult?

 

So i'll just do the research myself like you recommended.

That's good. That way, you will learn the material and hopefully progress towards understanding that programmers or others working with code rely on research on a daily basis to do their jobs. The ability to do research is not an optional skill in our line of work.

 

Don't waste your time thinking of a witty comeback

I don't feel that attempting to engage with people on this forum or any other is all that much of a waste of time. If I got you to do research and think about the questions then I feel that I've accomplished something with my time, even if you're the only one who benefits.

 

I don't even want to hear what you have to say.

OK. Best of luck to you in the future.

 

Enjoy your "unpaid volunteer job" because I can't see anybody ever giving you a 'real job' in the 'real world'.

You're awfully quick to judge someone who you know nothing about. I have a degree, a good job in my field with a good salary and insurance, house, car, all that good stuff. I'm not looking for your validation though, the reason I continue to be involved with this forum is because I enjoy helping people learn. You're welcome to peruse my post history if you disagree with that statement.

 

Especially when they realize "what you're really like" on the inside.

Because you know what I'm really like, don't you?

 

I'm going to close this topic, it's not productive. Feel free to send me a private message. If you'd like to post a question in the future please understand that everyone who you are asking for help from is a volunteer, none of us are required to deal with any behavior that we don't appreciate. Please also read the forum guidelines. If you decide to post abusive or insulting content then your account will be suspended, just like any other person on this site.
