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 :D ) 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

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.

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?

>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 am sorry for my outburst but let me explain.

Several posts by Series X4 1.0 calling everyone an "insect" and that he is their superior is really getting on my nerves. I'm all for freedom of speech, but these comments by him are just outrageous. How can he be allowed to keep on abusing people with no action taken?

I noticed. I even said something about it.
Besides, some people may not have really noticed.
Announcements should be made when something is
fixed. That'll guarantee praise.

Speaking of complaining... What's the status
on the old board? Is it gone? If it is, the
Webmaster may want to remove the link. It just
annoys people when they try to follow it... And
I hate my job.

People take for granted the things that work and expect them only to get better. Take for instance my own computer. I caught myself just a few days ago as i cursed at the load time of a webpage. I looked down at the bottom of my browser to note the actual time it took: 2.8 seconds. Is it so bad that i have to wait not even three seconds to view a page? Apparently. I guess the only way everyone will ever be happy is if i takes no time whatsoever. If they dont even need to click to see what they want. All they have to do is ask and they will know... Its absolutly incredible the things we take for granted and the things we expect. When one stops to think about the intricity behind everything that we do, it all comes into better focus.

Theres a heck of a lot of complaining around here (one reason i dont post much is because theres nothing constructive to post to), but depending on how you look at it it could be taken as a good thing: If people complain about the stupidest of things, then that must mean everything important is in perfect condition.

You should consider getting help for your problems. It's not normal to be so annoyed all the time.

I've also been called a lot of things, like: Moron, idiot, loser, inferior, "not human", "get a life", etc. Those people are doing just as wrong as me in that case.

Yes I've lost it a bit, and gotten angry at people. So what? I'm human, and plenty of people get angry around here. With you it's like "I have to call people names to hide the fact I'm really feeling inadequate". I can respect others opinions as long as they respect mine. You show little respect to anyone here.

Wrong, it's actually pretty 'normal' to be depressed. And I'm superior, therefore my strife is not to be normal.

If you said it is "normal" to be depressed, and you said you are "not" normal, then you should be "not" depressed! Haha...
