Then perhaps phrasing it different would be a better way to go. Instead of saying "You're doing it wrong" with a cheesy smile emoticon (sounding very much like - neener, neener I am better than you), perhaps a more humble approached would be better received. There is no need to try to embarrass those with this community.

Sharing > embarrassing

you can share without making someone feel bad while doing it - look through the threads on this forum you will see MANY humble examples.

Hi there everyone,

Just noticed this thread and wanted to add 1.2 cents of my advice:

1. Look at the profile of the user who is posting/replying. The number of posts he or she has - especially if high - should tell that this person has quite a bit of experience under his belt.. [again, at a quick glance before going into details]

2. Phrasing/etc - ok - it can be a delicate issue BUT - point taken - look at the positives - always.. not everyone here speaks English as their native language nor they might have the time or mood to prepare the answer nicely.. especially in a topic like this which has been covered so many times before [see 3.]

3. As an add-on coder/designer - I believe ANY suggestion is welcome and can be a [new?] source of learning / approaching on things.

Nothing wrong with someone better to show a simpler way - that's how we achieve better / more optimized code in the end : )


I wouldn't feel embarrassed at all - I'd probably offer FRDS a beer or two - but that's me ; )


Cheers,
aproape

This is not an accurate way to judge experience - number of posts mean absolutely nothing. I recently can to VB after years of experience in coding with both the SMF and Joomla products. There is no way to judge that by simply looking at a post count.

Perhaps the OP's native language isn't English - just means we can all be more careful in our phrasing. "You're doing it wrong" is most like offensive in any language. There are just better ways to say things; that was my original point.

Questions, suggestions; of course but why not have a little tact? Perhaps the OP was posting their first Mod ..... wouldn't a more experienced coder/designer attempt to be encouraging instead of "slamming" by saying "you're doing it wrong?'

I totally agree - it's just the delivery I had issue with - that's all.

I say Bravo but when it became obvious that the OP WAS embarrassed perhaps a simple "sorry, I didn't mean it in that way" could have neutralized the situation instead of "Whats wrong if someone manage something easier then u did? "
Again, it's just a matter of delivery and courtesy - treating others as we would like to be treated.

just my .02 cents

Hi there father guido/killaduce,

To me the number of posts and the profile are both indicators - they are better than _nothing_ and.. that's why I said - quick glance, _before_ going into details.

If two people reply and one has well over 1,500 posts and the other just a couple - I will probably want to know more details or read more threads on the guy who posted more - at least to have an idea of what else/how he handled other situations.

Certainly I wouldn't jump.. : ) I like walking.. and if I was to jump - I would keep the courtesy level high.

Perhaps the OP's native language isn't English - just means we can all be more careful in our phrasing. "You're doing it wrong" is most like offensive in any language. There are just better ways to say things; that was my original point.
Totally agree.

And then... again : ) I give the benefit of the doubt to the other person that he is not a mean character - maybe he just wanted to make a joke out of it or sound funny.. No idea. You also can't tell the age of either and that is another factor.

I say Bravo but when it became obvious that the OP WAS embarrassed perhaps a simple "sorry, I didn't mean it in that way" could have neutralized the situation instead of "Whats wrong if someone manage something easier then u did? "
Indeed - BUT - : ) I am not sure you noticed.. FRDS replied only once. The 'Whats wrong..' answer came from another forum member.. : )

Again, it's just a matter of delivery and courtesy - treating others as we would like to be treated.
Who knows - maybe he likes to be told he's wrong directly - I have no issue with that. Sometimes I find too much comforting is not always the best approach. Yes, it makes things more positive but the results can take longer to be achieved.. and in the end it's a nice poof..

I've read and came across quite a few situations where different cultures or background collide and - all I can say is - tact is gold.

[/QUOTE]

Now, back on topic : )

killaduce - will you at least evaluate/consider doing the change or taking the approach FRDS suggested? I don't know - maybe as an alternate solution? I think it's a better way and would save other people's time to have one template edit instead of two.

[ok - I ran out of cents again here.. piggy bank.. here I come!]


Cheers,
aproape
