I think that it is outrages to see unanswered questions in The forum
I kind of agree with that.
But also, in my experience, and as already mentioned in this thread, most of those questions just happen to be questions already answered or basic stuff that can be found with a little bit of search/read through the manual/tutorials/already existing threads.
Also most questions don't interest me anymore since I already answered them thousands of time, even if with another formulation.
Some other questions also happens to just be so poorly formulated that it's hard to even understand what is being asked and it shows directly that the basics of C2 are not understood by the person.
And still in my experience, when I don't have the time for it, I don't want to kick in the bees nest and ask for clarifications because then, those people asking questions feel entitled that I shall give them an answer/provide a capx/babysit them until they are as at ease with C2 as I am. They'll try to send me PMs, or emails for the most basic stuff that going through tuts and manual shall teach them.
I personally can't handle/guide every new comer like that.
Also, believe it or not, when I started using C2, there wasn't the sixteenth of all the documentation available now. If you can't show me that you've made the basic search, I'm not always willing to put you on the correct track either.
If you don't do the minimum, why should I ?
That is something that is known in internet communities. The influx of newcomers, asking for the same set of already answered questions. And the "experts" (I'll dare consider myself one) just becoming tired of always answering those questions, especially when we've spent the last years already doing so.
In my opinion, Scirra's forums are still welcoming and providing support.
Some of the people who got helped years ago are now helping back with efficient support.
Maybe someday, you'll do as well Naji.
Nevertheless, I'm also wondering where this reflexion is coming from seeing that all threads you've been posting that I've seen, has been answered in one way another.
Maybe you're thinking about other posts you've seen. If so, I then invite you to try to provide an answer to those post.
"Pro-tip": I've learnt a lot about C2 by trying to provide solutions to posts on the forums, and that's how most of my capx were made. And doing so, I learnt and practice a great deal on the way. You can do so as well !
But yeah, be aware that "experts" are most likely to have to be interested in the question (it should be challenging, and not just because of a lack of knowledge of the person asking) and to have the time to investigate. And not all questions require "experts" either, far from it.
Also, one has to consider the human factor. Sometime, when working on my own projects, I don't want to be bothered with other people's "problems". And I think it's quite natural.
The community's purpose is not to be here to serve you (general "you" here).
If you think that because you ask a question the community HAS to answer you, there is a misconception already here.
If I remember correctly in Buddhist philosophy a saying goes : "If one asks a question, one's not yet ready for the answer".
Think about it
