Do none of the baby forum newcomer idiots not know that Coding Help is an actual category for providing help!?

    probably me actually.

    but seriously who asks for help, provides little to no information on the circumstances other than what HTTP status code they are getting, and then when they get an answer that basically says what the error code means because that's all the information provided says

    @unknown_user said:

    That is the opposite of useful.

    ?

    it's almost like they're not interested in getting help

    You asked for help.
    I provided what help I could.
    You shit in my face.
    I push for more info.
    You shit even harder.

    Tell me, who's really at fault here?

    I am pretty sure it was on StackOverflow, find it yourself. I cannot spoon-feed all you people.

    When it comes to me though, I prefer to be spoon-fed from a silver platter or I will lose my feces about it.

    If you need any more information, you baby forum newcomer idiot, you ask for it. You do not post gifs of popcorn.

    @RaceProUK said:

    You provided wrong information. If the first post didn't have enough information, you should have asked for more. This is not fucking hard.

    @RaceProUK said:

    Me, for not leaving this idiot forum when the dumbshits like you showed up.

    Look, idiots: there's ONE category on this entire board, ONE, for serious discussion.

    So, if I get you correctly, you are saying that you get to decide where the goal posts are and you get to decide when to move them to suit your needs? Sounds about right for you.

    i didn't need information. I wasn't interested in anything other than watching the fireworks.

    Good show by the by.

    @blakeyrat said:

    as i read it he provided the only information he could have given the lack of information in your OP.

    all we knew was:

    • you sent a request that got a 415 HTTP status code
    • it did not make it to your controller
    • you were using web API

    Not a lot to go on. @RaceProUK provided information he thought was relevant and you flipped your lid because it turned out to not be relevant.

    You forgot how he changed the architecture of the data exchange and was then surprised when it did not work...

    *rummages around his cybernetics for a few moments*
    No, sorry, I don't have the psychic module installed.

    *checks his cybernetic supplier's webshop*
    Oh, and my supplier doesn't sell any.

    *checks his cybernetic supplier's main rivals' webshops*
    And neither do their rivals.


    At all times, I can only work on what info I have. If that leads to an incorrect conclusion, then it is up to you to not only say so, but also to include more info, for example why it is wrong. Then, I can use that new info to come to a better conclusion.

    I don't care about being wrong; hell, I actually enjoy it, because then I can learn something new.


    If you were civil, here's how it would have gone:
    You: I have this issue.
    Me: Have you tried this?
    You: Yes, but it didn't work.
    Me: Could you post more details?
    You: Here you go.
    Me: Ah, I see the issue now. Try this.
    You: Hey, that worked!
    Me: Glad I could help!
    And they lived happily ever after…

    this.

    this is EXACTLY why we couldn't help blakey.... we all lack the psychic module.

    that and being an asshole is a great recipe for not getting any help.

    with insufficient information to accurately diagnose the issue is it at all surprising that we might have gotten it wrong?

    also, i didn't start that game, if you'll read carefully it was already underway when i started eating popcorn.

    I know you will ignore this like you always do, but the solution to that is obvious: stop being such an unredeemed asshole. You don't deserve help.

  • @blakeyrat said:

    Games like playing a persona and not providing any actual info?



  • I'll just leave this here....

    People who must defend their rightness are often preoccupied with imagined shortcomings of others and perceived attacks form them. They often feel betrayed by others. They justify their criticizing and blaming others to avoid the insight that they themselves might be in error. They fear losing power and will use anger to keep others from asserting themselves. Life becomes miserable for the family because it is fear and control based.

    I read your WebAPI returning 415 ... topic before anyone replied. I chose not to reply for two reasons:

    1. There was hardly any information in your OP to work with. There were several possible conclusions, and I wasn't in the mood to start playing guessing games.
    2. Your persona is an asshole. Having seen your other requests for help, I know you don't stop being an asshole when you're asking for help. As a result, I had no desire to request more information from you.

    Looking back over that topic now, and reading this topic up to this point, it's obvious I made the right decision.

    In the future, you might want to turn off the persona when you are asking for help. Try to be nice in the topics where you are seeking out help. Otherwise, you're likely to get ignored or get undesirable feedback.

    I was going to say this reminds me of every time JWZ asks for help, except he has an actual good reason when he inevitably rants, because people invariably tell him things he's already said he won't do (e.g., "use Windows") or knows won't work.

    Oh come on. I normally agree with you when it comes to this community, and even I think you just blew that one.

    Just give it up and channel your anger towards better things. Like all those foxes and hedgehogs and furries and crap.
