Opinion - Developer's Forum Misuse
Back in March when joining XDA, I asked a few questions in the developer's forum out of sincere desire to learn some things.
A moderator quickly directed me towards the appropriate areas to do my own homework. It was also conveyed in understandable terms that comportment was expected in the developer's forum.
For those who may not know what "comportment" means, it pertains to keeping conduct within the scope of where you're at. In order words, keep topics in the development forum focused on development.
Have those sheriffs been on holiday?
You moderators did me a great favor by steering me in the direction where I could do my own homework, dig out the essentials, learn how to work with Android ROMs and avoid dumb mistakes (much less, whine after a dirty flash *lol*).
Smack posts in the developer forum will do nothing but run off (or run underground) some incredible developers. That will only lessen the benefits of delivery to us as users. These developers who give free time and work do NOT have time to waste sifting through a pile of developer forum bologna to find any meat of substance that can benefit their efforts ... and us.
Note: This is NOT being posted in the developer's forum. This is not a solicited post. This is a post of gratitude and respect for this site.
