Topic: spoonfeeding questions

there have been a good deal of questions mainly abt mapping asking for spoonfeeding from mrko, superballmaster, lolek185, and maybe others?    maybe to help this there could be something somewhere asking people to try to look for other posts when asking these questions.    but i am kinda indecisive abt this thread b/c when you are not terribly computer savvy as i was when beginning to map your questions can be kinda spoonfeeding-type / seem not-bothering-to-look-for-already-given-information. but certain questions by the aformentioned users kinda too easy, like this, this, this

Re: spoonfeeding questions

Honestly, out of the 6 years of playing Neverball, I have never heard of cheat mode until last year on the forum.

Re: spoonfeeding questions

Performing a forum search is always a good starting point when looking for an answer. Questions like "What is/how to activate cheat mode" pop up every one or two years and just uselessly increase the total number of posts/topics, making the forums seem more bloated and unclear in the end. Anyway it's still much better to have such activity than to have hardly anyone posting at all - like it used to be one year ago...

Re: spoonfeeding questions

We cant stop it. Always we've got new Neverball users, that they don't know a lot of thinks, like cheat mode.
When I was posting last time a topic about cheat mode, I've done it because I wasn't hearing about this

Re: spoonfeeding questions

It the it, I think you missed my point.

It's not about asking "easy" questions. It's not about not doing a search on the forum.

It's about asking questions, ignoring the answers that are given to you, and asking more questions that have already been answered.

Here's a real world example.

We got a question about mapping tutorials, to which I responded with a link to Neverball documentation.

Later on, the same person asked about changing coin color.

Materials are well-documented in the link that I already provided. Which means he didn't read it, even though he asked for it. Which, in turn, probably means that the person is not asking to receive answers, but for another purpose. Such as boosting their forum rank.

WE SPAM
WE WANT
NEVERBALL
NOT OFTENBALL

And that's the problem.

there is a good chance i know what you mean now          also kinda as dtb said, if there are repeating "easy" questions that are not asked after something has been ignored in a recent post clearly giving something, i think it could cause us busy lazy nb people to do more actiivty/reply posts         but still i think some thn somewhere reminding to search for existing question posts/threads would be good

Re: spoonfeeding questions

i  thought it would be for some other reason that would be in posting, like some ideas for making physical holes or something else i cannot get my finger on at the moment tongue

edit: maybe it would be "decade approaching" thread, where i notice the activity on the forum at the time
