    It's a shame things didn't work out for you here. This is actually an excellent forum with very knowledgable contributors. Granted your first post here didn't go so well, but you shouldn't give up so easily. It might be worth it, time permitting, to read through some posts to get a general idea of how the forum works and what the average contributor expects.

    If you'd care to, you could read the "How To Ask Questions The Smart Way" link in laserlights signature to get an idea of how to properly communicate problems you have and get better results.

    Best of luck with your programming!

    I'm sorry, laserlight. I thought you were being sarcastic with him (or her, I don't know), like another people.

    Anyway, and sincerely, thanks by your attention!

    I dunno about hudsonf88, but the whiner, Lauren Nicole, apparently couldn't handle the way grumpy responded to one of her posts, so instead of thinking "Hey, this guy's named grumpy, maybe if I can't handle a grumpy guy I should just ignore him," she threw a hissy fit and stomped out the door.

    If she had stuck around, she might have discovered that not all of us are as grumpy as grumpy. She also might have come to understand how many cheaters and fakers we have to deal with, so it's natural for us to be a bit suspicious of newbies. Oh well, her loss I guess. I wish her luck somewhere else.

    I want not to close my account because of that; unlike, I like *C programming* very much. But I am not using the board frequently. Besides this, I am brazilian and speak Portuguese (English writing and non-computational is not my strenght; I am accustomed to read).

    @brewbuck

    I understand your point of view perfectly. Alias, I was criticized in a way not so good by give a suggestion about a heuristic of artificial intelligence that is teached in university (e.g.: ant colony heuristic to solve exam schedule problem), but that don't let me to get out of the board.

    However, it would be good be treated with respect. Someone can say "your opinion is not good because of this, this and this", but with due respect for the other. I think that this is important for a good living together in a community. Of course, this is my opinion. Furthermore, it's an order in the rules of this board: "be polite".

    Regards.

    While I'll concede I get grumpy at times, my choice of name had nothing to do with my nature. Nor my stature, for that matter. It was a personal joke among members of my family.

    I stand by my treatment of Lauren Nicole. Her first post basically gave a screen capture (with hand-based highlighting) of some code that demonstrated almost no effort on her part to do her own homework --- in fact, the effort of doing a screen capture, highlighting the incomplete work she had done, and then attaching an image to her post almost certainly consumed more effort than she had expended with writing C code. She felt she was entitled to expect forum members to do her homework for her. This ran roughshod over rules here about people being expected to do their own homework and guidelines to demonstrate an honest effort to solve one's own problem before asking for help.

    The thread in question is here.

    I never once attacked her personally. I attacked the way in which she clearly had done no work of her own, and was feeling entitled to expect things at odds with the documented rules here.

    I can't specifically comment on your behaviour, nor on any behaviour you have encountered - I don't believe I've seen the threads in question. So my comments below are a generic response to your words here.

    Manners, I agree, are important. However, respect is earned, it is not an entitlement. Unfortunately, a large proportion of new members here think of their entitlement to be shown respect, but don't bother to show respect for other members. This is evident in all sorts of ways, including asking for things that are against the rules (about which information is readily available here), not applying any effort of their own, and feeling that they are doing other people a favour by their approach.

    Most people into software have a technical bent, expect people to apply an honest effort to solving their own problems, and often a "tell it as they see it" approach when they disagree. It is hardly surprising that new members will receive a direct response when they don't apply effort, don't take time to learn the ropes, and expect to be exempt from the rules.

    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    On the other hand, this board is very open to new members. You don't need to be an expert to answer others' questions. You don't need a thousand posts. You only need to be yourself and be willing to listen to what others say. If you do something wrong, chances are others will try to correct you. It is a great learning opportunity.
    There are some people who can be overly grumpy (no, not grumpy) here, in my opinion, and it is something I disagree with, but overall, this is a great place, for both contributors (new as well as experienced) and those seeking questions.

    As for closing accounts... yeah, unless there is a very good reason, it just won't happen. But there is no harm in simply ignoring the board itself if one does not want to participate anymore. No harm will come of it.
