Solution Spree

Just wanted to point out that in the last 30 minutes we have helped clients post 15 solutions. Great work everyone! A lot of familiar handles an a few new ones involved, but I always feel good after a session like this one. If you like, add your handle if you were part of the community tonight. @chuck_grady

I'm not in it for the power or glory. I'm in it because I am often bored and like to help others. Now no one will suspect me when I steal all the power and glory when no one is looking.

Now most people are here to help without  the need for self recognition, but for the next time you need to do it The Lounge is the place for such threads.

 

That is where you can find this one now @chuck_grady

Re: Solution Spree

Just for those of you who read this in the future, contrary to the "Oracle's" assumption, this post was not about recognition. It was about experiencing an evening of great cooperation without disrespect and without drama and the result was a positive experience for everyone.

 

Maybe if people were not in it for the Power and the Glory, it would be like that every night.

 

BTW, I thought this might end up in the lounge, and I have no issue with that. I'm still learning what the boundries are @ShawnC13 . @Psygineer , I'll be keeping my eye on you!

Re: Solution Spree

@chuck_grady there was no drama or disrespect intended, in my time here the have only been 2 or three other threads where the OP is congratulating themselves. The vast majority come in here post and help people and go on with their day. I know you did post a we which does show you mentioning others which is great but just tag them as you said there were familiar handles and a few new ones get their attention about you recognizing their efforts and I am sure they would do the same rather than just tagging yourself. As for the "Oracle" comment and power and glory statement, I have noticed you mention this a couple of times when things are mentioned to you from one of the Oracle group who are offering advice. It seems your reaction is of someone with either a guilty conscience or someone that has something against a group of longtime users who have a slightly elevated "privileges" in the community, when we are just trying to continue to help out in the community. There is no glory in getting numerous PM's with personal information about someone and telling them that I can't help them that they still need to contact the moderators and as for power the ability to move threads to correct location isn't really a big hammer when things go sideways in here and people are waiting days for a response.

Re: Solution Spree

That's a long post. A couple of days ago someone said they hardly know me and that they have nothing against me. 

 

Today you sure made a leap there in assessing my personality.

 

Im  actually just a 50 year old people-oriented person who loves to help others. Ask anyone who knows me. Your not even close there.

 

My only concerns with this community is that some people, sometimes can be rude when they correct people. Not everyone is as thoughtful and sensitive as I am and I get that.

Re: Solution Spree

And by the way @ShawnC13 , I've made two posts saying that replies were disrespectful and I may have pointed out that part of the Oracle's mantra was to be respectful to others. But I have nothing against the Oracle's, I defer to them all the time and often bravo and compliment them as well.

@chuck_gradyplease do not take this directed at you this is my personal experience and after typing it out I don't want you to feel as if it is an attack on you

 

If it seems there was a misunderstanding about your character that is unfortunate.  I am just going off of my personal experience.  In the past people who have had to post or say something to recognize themselves and explain they are thoughtful and sensitive aren't always out there for the betterment of others but for their own self-recognition.   

 

 

Ok now back to the regular reply you made a leap of judgment as well

Re: Solution Spree

@ShawnC13 I agree we should not let disagreements affect the community. I appreciate your comments and am sorry if I got defensive... again.

 

It's my nature to protect myself and the people around me. I looked up the concerns I posted and you were not involved in them to my knowledge, but if you were, I'm sorry. I guess getting started I did not know what to expect.

 

I'm learning though.

Re: Solution Spree

Oh yeah @ShawnC13 , you're right on there on me making my own judgement. I probably shouldn't expect more from others than I can expect from myself. Again. Im sorry for that.
