I’m fairly new to WordPress and these forums. I hope my short time here thus far is not indicative of the normal Mod attitudes. The post I’m referring to is here.
The first Mod says:
Decapped. Seriously, do not post in all caps again it’s considered rude.
Some might consider that statement, especially using a near-entire sentence as a link, to be rude. Now, if the poster had the habit of posting in caps then this might be appropriate, but a first-offender should be prompted a little nicer, maybe something like:
Decapped. Please do not post in all caps, it’s against this forum’s policies.
The second Mod uses a form response to someone else asking, “Is there any solution to this?”, telling them to start their own post. In most cases, that would be appropriate, but in that thread (which is now closed) there is no valid answer. That someone else then replies “Thanks but it is exactly the same…”, to which second Mod states (again a form response):
Are you using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster?
No? Then your problem – despite any similarity in symptoms – is likely to be completely different. So please help us to help you and post a new topic when we ask you to.
It appears that second Mod did not even consider the original question OR the fact that other’s, including myself, have the same problem, and the fact that the post has been marked “Resolved” even though it clearly has not been. If that thread was still open, I would have responded the same, and probably been told to start my own thread as well. In fact I did have to start yet another thread on this exact same (unresolved) problem, instead of keeping it in that thread where it would seem to belong.
