Why are there so many threads with the following (or similar) titles:
I need somebody: Help
Not just anybody - Help
You know I need someone
Won't somebody please help me!
Amusing though it is to use Beatles lyrics as the title of a thread, IF only the title included some hint as to the nature of the problem then:
- someone would be more ready to offer assistance
- it would easier for others in the future to locate the solution and re-use it.
Help others to help you - to help others!
here is a little help from your little helper friend.
I've always found honesty to be the best policy. If I need help I usually ask for it.
Sometimes I find people struggle in whatever area (we all have our giants to face.) But life ( and chess) are so much easier if you say "hey can you help me please?" Instead of beating the air alone, all puffed up with pride and not acknowledging that we are all mere mortals. We all have our weakness...
Perhaps there could be a new forum category called: help, rescue me, advice, guidance or can you answer me?
Indeed. Why not use Aretha Franklin lyrics occasionally. What would be neat would be to be able to associate a sound file (or song) with a topic. e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGO9xcKLziI (link removed - try the next one!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXSocE_M1G4
There is, of course, a forum category Help & Support -which most of the help requests use appropriately.
You may be right that the effort/courage required to seek help in the first place may preclude us from being able to spell out the nature the of help being sought.
Tell Me Why
as long as its not titled my opponant won't resign i don't mind what the thread is called?
They're just asking for a little help from their friends.
