Lately I’ve seen an increase in the request for help by members as old as 15 minutes on issues pertaining CSS/HTML and basic web design.
Is reading the Codex files and actually learning about your brand new toy no longer mandatory before one jumps into the WordPress support forums and screams for help?
What bothers me more, I think, is the expectation from some members – particularly brand new members – who believe they have the right to solicit help in these forums because their brand new toy isn’t fully functional and personally customized AND designed the way they want, all within a space of an hour.
They seem to expect instant and immediate help, without bothering to read and learn from the Codex files or even search the billion or so other websites out there that actually provide tutorials and articles that relate to their problem before they post.
Or, am I the only one who believes this to be so?
I may not be a moderator, or even a damn guru, or even an “old” member, or Nielsen come to think about it, but at least I took the time out of my busy life to actually learn basic html/css and web design which is more than I can say for some.
