hi!
i hope this is the right place i haven't found a topic like that, but i apologize if one exists. english is not my first language, so the obvious words to search for are usually not that obvious for me Smiley

i've been browsing the home sweet home section of craftster a lot lately, especally the discussion and question boards.
i've noticed, that there's lots of posts
a) with basically no information at all (hi! i moved, what can i do to fix the ugly bathroom? *end of post*)
b) never ending bla-bla, that doesn't give the needed information either (like talking a lot about where the piece they want to reupholster is from, what the price was and ask for a how to for reupholster this special sofa without giving a picture or detailed description of the construction or material they want to use.
c)
that's annoying


is there a way to make a basic "how to write a request for help-thing" that's easy to see?
i know that won't solve all the problems.

it seems to me that there's a lot of not that respectful users around lately. people who don't bother to read the rules or think about where/how to post something
in a community that's as big as craftster, it's hard to get along. probably because there's always some people that are not as nice/helpful/honest and then the "nice" ones who take the rules serios, feel disadvantaged
i just want to say that i know where the problems are, but some of them might be easy to fix.

thank you for reading this!

I know what you mean. I have answered several posts with questions, saying we can't really help without xyz information, and can you post pictures?
