I got 30 % is it right?

Hi LmessiA,

I just looked at your track record. 

You have been answered on 3 previous threads.

You have only ever said thank you once for an answer.

You do not give point credit to your answerers.

You have never commented in any other way, other than that one thank you.

   If you want answers to explain in more detail then you need to interact with them.

I am letting you know that your manners and attitude are under watch.

 

-------------------

 

Having said all that negative stuff I will also add that it is good that you gave your answer of 30%.

It is good to see that people have tried to answer questions for themselves  cool

 

---------------

 

Yes 12/40  is 30%  so this does seems a reasonable estimate based on the very limited fact that you have been given.

Thank you for telling me that I'm right! I'm sorry for not giving people credit that answers my questions. I don't know how to give them credit. How do I do that?

Hello LMessiA,

It is very nice to meet you.    laugh

 

For starters you do what you just did, say thank you and whenever possible add something to it. 

That is communication wink

 

Answerers really like it when their answers are questioned. 

Most of the time we feel like we are teaching brick walls. Polite interaction is always appreciated.

 

Also if you hover the curser over the heart in the top right of a post you can see a + and a - 

By pressing the appropriate one you can increase or decread their score by one.

 

Remeber that people are trying to help, even if the answer is nonsense it still would rarely deserve a down vote.

 

I hope you learn a lot from the wonderful answerers who haunt this forum and that you enjoy the experience as well. :)

 

Any questions?  Well just ask :)

Thank you very much for that information! You are right most of you guys teach "brick wall" because when I see most of the people who ask questions they don't say thank you or something :(. I will try my best to respond to people who answer my question and give them a heart and I will try to answer other people questions. Have a great day!
