Blog #110: Willful Ignorance or Something Else?

Let's start this off with a quote from an old post.  It won't be the whole thing but it's more to remind our more seasoned members about it.

Found in the TSLRCM section, that's a quote from the the READ ME FIRST thread.  You know . . . it's the one that folks are supposed to read first before jumping straight in using mods with the TSLRCM.  This page is supposed to act as a safety net. It helps folks manage the most basic modding of the game as many folks that come are need to the game by knowing the right way to ask questions.  It's also a filter: to help those that are more familiar with modding and/or troubleshooting this game to give the new folks a quick answer to common problems. It wound up being so helpful that the TSLRCM (and M4-78 EP) teams made it a requirement to answer bug reports for the game.

So why am I rambling about this now?

I'm not a staff member as has been mentioned previously.  Yet . . .  I still get messages complaining about certain individuals.  I'll continue in this post without specifically revealing either the reporter or the subject of the reporting.  Aat what point does it go past mere willful ignorance and into the realm of trolling when a member can't follow the rules as clearly stated on the READ ME FIRST page.  How long should it take someone to figure out how to ask the questions.  A week?  A month?

If someone has been a registered member here since (at least) 2014, shouldn't they have figured it out?

Because - in case you don't know - this is also part of the Site Rules.

Quote

If you open a topic requesting help with a game or a specific modification, you must list all modifications that you currently have installed. Inaction or inability to list your installed modifications will result in our inability to provide assistance; we can't help if you can't provide this information.

I even provided a solution in that READ ME FIRST thread for those of you that are upset about this person (and some others) that continue to do this.

Members that have been around here for a while, should quote this next line and direct folks having issues to this very post.

 

Quote

Read this post. Follow the instructions. Bug reports for TSLRCM require the format in the linked thread.

Only one post of this per bug thread - and only if they haven't provided the information.  If they still don't follow your kind suggestion, report them to Staff.

 

I didn't post any screenshots of the person in question as I'm not calling out the person but the behavior.  For those reading this thread looking for juicy drama, I instead suggest posting the quote as suggested above.  Perhaps with enough post (or reports) , you'll finally be rid of the menace.  And maybe I'll stop getting complaints about this troll.

I haven't been paying attention for the past few weeks, but I've seen this issue periodically and it's annoying.

Worse are the people who help despite the poster ignoring the instructions. This only encourages bad behavior.
