    People only see negative

    This is something that I'm going to gripe about...not something i do often but....People only complain...Why? Why not say good things. One example I'll use is this board (casue you all are such easy targets ) Couple weeks ago everyone was complaining and complaining about the load time on editting, the Webmaster found the problem and fixed it and now no body noticed. ...*cough* thank you *cough* There are plently of other, better, examples in the world. Why do we do this? Is just humans? Why? I think we should all try and notice more positive things!

    Ok there's my thought of the day....rant away (can't wait to see where this one goes ...)

    Because people take for granted that things are going to work perfectly, so only notice when they don't.

    I probably do about 50% of the complaining here at cprogramming. I guess it's because the webmaster refuses to put up a C# Programming board. I imagine the complaining is going to get a lot worse too.

    does appreciation need to be stated?

    depends on the circumstances...i guess,
    Thank You, Webmaster.

    <

    that would be the same as putting up a java board... i don't know if i agree with it since C# is not truly C/C++ or anything like them, if i took and slapped a new name on Basic like C* would you buy into it?

    you asked for direction kermi3, FLAME WAR!!eh..heh

    >>I think we should all try and notice more positive things!

    Yeah...I'm guilty of b#tching too..... Though I do really like this board and I wouldnt know what to do without it....... (hence why I spend so much time here). I dont do much C stuff at the moment, but I like it here more than any other board. The people, their abilities and their personalities are a real draw.

    Please dont take offence at the gripes...... the fact that we all come here and so many are joining is because this place rules....

    C# is directly decended from C and C++. 'No-one' do your homework before you spread your ignorance.

    Due to our glorious proxy server at work ( ever seen the byte count on a downloading file drop to a sum where it actually displays bytes instead of kilobytes ? ) I didn't even notice it took long to edit... But I think it's good to know it's fixed. Thanks Webmaster

    I do believe it's pointless to complain if complaining won't help. Complaining about load times actually helped obviously. Complaining about the weather for example is wasted time. It won't change, go ahead and make the best you can out of the current situation.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Unhappy

    whats a junior member doing in a discussions thus far dominated by super moderators and the people above? well you'll see
    (eating up a few bytes of webspace i guess)


    i think what evryone is forgetting is the number of posts that get on this place evryday im sure its a big number and i think that is the best way to appreciate yr efforts

    so on evryones behalf thanx for the board but
    it obviously is so good due to the complaining so let evryone complain freely...

    one thing that i can't stand is when people state such things as "this is ridiculous" not just once, but five or ten times within a half hour or leess. It really annoys me because it's not like it's going to do anything about the situation, you might as well keep your comments to yourself and maybe you won't think that it is ridiculous or negative. This makes everyone so much more happy.

    well, you aren't human, you are far superior, so i guess its just a waste of time for you to post here. Why don't you go and post on a board with people as superior as yourself?

    *sigh* get a life.

    >I probably do about 50% of the complaining here at cprogramming. I guess it's because the webmaster refuses to put up a C# Programming board. I imagine the complaining is going to get a lot worse too.<

    I would put that figure at about 98%.

    >C# is directly decended from C and C++. 'No-one' do your homework before you spread your ignorance.<

    As is java, and D. You know how many languges are basee upon C/C++.

    I'm tired of these little morons who like to ***** and moan how sad and pathetic everyone else is and how emotions are wrong and that they are so superior to everyone else. Yes this means you Series X4 1.0.
    Ramble on...
