How to Become Known As an Idiot on the Warrior Forum

9 replies
(Note I posted this in the Main Forum because becoming known as an idiot will effect how or if you can make money here.)

While there are lots of ways to become known as an idiot here, I will focus on only one: Not reading or understanding a thread before you reply.

Note that unfortunately this also applies to otherwise good, experienced, people that have helped a lot of people over the years.

If you say anything such as "I don't have time to read through x pages" then this just proves that you are not in it for the benefit of the forum - you are likely being selfish and care only about getting your sig seen. Makes you look desperate to get your ad out for free so you will say or do anything.

Many times the OP comes back to clarify their post or to say that their question is resolved. So why do some keep answering?

Some times the OP is called out and makes the thread irrelevant. For example, the other day we discovered someone with multiple IDs, copied and pasted content, etc. and we were discussing it. Then one of the serial sig whores comes along giving his answer to the OP. Made him look like a total idiot. He had no clue what we had discovered or were discussing and didn't care to look.

It's like butting into a conversation that has already been resolved but you don't have the full story yet huff and puff your opinion.

While some threads and posts do get long, at least skim through the content if you aren't going to read it so that your answer doesn't make you look like an idiot.

Or better yet, if you want to help then be truly helpful which requires reading the thread, giving good advice based on the situation, etc. Don't pretend that you want to be helpful, though, while everyone else sees you as just another idiot trying to get their sig seen. That is a good way to NOT get your sig clicked.

Any other ways to become known as an idiot here?

    Sadly this could be posted every day, and there are still going to be people who don't read the OP or the replies at all. I agree it's quite annoying. Some just seem to be oblivious. Or don't care. Like you said, they are not here to be a real part of the community.

    Another way is to just repeat what some one else has already said, without mentioning or acknowledging they've said it, or adding no extra value with your repeat. Seems like any thread with length, there are always plenty of posters who are just saying what's already been said.

    Or writing posts that make no sense.That seems to be a big one lately. Probably a language barrier most times.

    Yes agree that skim milk is also very good for you, oops do I feel like an idiot for not reading the thread and only skim reading. No wonder I thought it was about skim milk, while skimming I ran across where you said to at least skim through the thread.

    All kidding aside even when skimming you can very well miss or misconstrue certain things.

    But you're right Mike there are far too many idiots and sig whores here on the forum.

    Now that we got that out of the way, would you mind having a look at my signature, haha lol.
    I also turned off my sig to this thread as I have no plans on having a sig you never know what the future holds and if I ever do create a sig I don't want to look like an idiot. Some members make me laugh when they get busted and say oh I forgot my sig was even related to the thread.

      Sig whores, sig idiot...all the same thing. Maybe they should add value, put money aside and become part of the community. Money is important, but good relations are even more important especially on a great forum like this!!

    Simply put, if someone can't be bothered to read a post before replying, he shouldn't bother to reply at all.

      A close second to your OP are those who repeat the same questions/threads and refuse to look at the wealth of knowledge at their fingertips behind the W.F search button.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

    Remove all sig´s and this will solve it self!

    Sig´s are the reason this forum is sinking like Titanic....and lazy mods.

    Just my 2c

    Btw, I didn´t read the whole thread.
