    I guess I’m not surprised that programmers don’t know how to follow meme standards.

    The three panels following the first one are supposed to be helping the first one.

            But it is helping effectively.

            It’s less efficient to learn how to do something than to have somebody who knows how do it for you, but it’s more effective to learn for yourself. Hard won knowledge is rarely lost.

              Time management is different for everyone, and when you’re on a deadline, or just dealing with a one-off situation, the extra research has no value.

              Sometimes you don’t need to know how the clock works, you just need to know what time it is.

                I totally agree. There are exceptions to every rule, but random people on the internet who you aren’t being paid to solve the problem for by a very large majority would benefit more from education than having their problem solved for them.

        I know whenever I try to help someone with a Linux issue it’s always an uphill battle to get them to stop guessing what they think the problem might be and show me the logs.

        People really don’t want to give you the information you need to help them.

          To be fair, people who know which logs to attach and how to get them usually already know enough to troubleshoot the issue by themselves.

          I make sure to give my guess and also append as many logs and exact information as possible, right down to every step I took that produced the problem.

          So far my success rate with the forums is 0%. But hey, people at least tried to be helpful!

    I once submitted an issue to a devs GitHub. The apps login page would not load without large bg pictures loading first. I asked if he could add an option to disable it in the settings, as my self hosted site was slow.

    I essentially got back, “why would I do that? It’s not an issue for me! Besides the login page should load before the background picture” issue closed

    😑😑😑😑

      Similar thing here. I once went to a Minecraft mod dev’s discord to ask if there was a way to center the health bars that come with his mod. He basically said “you’re the only person who has ever asked for this, everyone else just puts it in a corner of their screen”. I feel centering is a basic feature of any adjustable UI element!

        I kinda get it, mod authors (and FOSS devs) often get a lot of requests for something they’re doing in their free time without pay. If they already have a backlog, they have to be picky about what tasks they take on, and they can get a bit snippy when overwhelmed with requests (or questions that might turn into one). That being said, there’s no reason to be rude.

          He wasn’t actually too rude about it luckily, but what I found funny is that his mod was a very basic one with a lot of competitors doing pretty much the exact same thing, and ALL of them had centering options. Maybe he just didn’t see those mods? Idk.

        Ive seen people link that one multiple times and i am at a loss what its about.

        The cc 4.0 license it points to does not mention AI at all.

        CC even has a page where they state that it probably is legal to train on cc protected content but it depends on context.

        https://creativecommons.org/2023/08/18/understanding-cc-licenses-and-generative-ai/

        I think someone used ai to mean attribution/alike, international. Which are part of the full name (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International) but still make little sense as an acronym next to CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 being the official acronym.

          There’s no point looking for logic. These people truly believe granting a licence restricts the rights of people who don’t agree to the licence, which is the exact opposite of what licenses do. It’s blatant misinformation but if you call them out on it (even by quoting their own link) they literally think you’re an astroturfer for AI, because that makes more sense to them than the fact they’re obviously wrong.

          The only thing worse than the tech-bro’s worshiping AI like it’s the next messiah and we all must pave way for this revolutionary technology that will only seem to benefit white Americans with disposable income, are the people on the opposite end of the spectrum who are have a hysterical hatred for LLM’s because their favorite Youtube streamers are getting clicks by ranting about how bad AI is. They are not being personally impacted by AI at all but are delusional enough to think that there will be laws and regulations and that AI will be “banned” if we all “raise awareness” and it’s about as useful as the Bud Lite protests but not even remotely as entertaining.

      This person may be confused, but still your tagline is a waste of mods’ time. And just speaking as a user I find it to be annoying visual pollution, especially since I think it’s ineffectual, unless your only goal is to “raise awareness.” Beyond that I think any effectiveness is about as plausible as that of sovereign citizenship.
