This is my first post...
I am willing to help anyone with any technical issue I know the answer to, and many that I have to research to give them an accurate answer to. But when people want someone to do their homework for them, or worse yet, do the work they are being paid for, I find it offensive that they would even ask.
On this site, and many others I often see posts requesting things like "How to write an ATM machine in C++", or "How to impleent a Quicksort in Java".
These are obvious homework questions which the OP has not even begun to research on their own.
I also often see postings requesting people asking for help writing the code they need to do their job.
To have these posts thrown in with all the legitimate requests for help from newbies and from professionals who are stuck, seems very wrong.
If the DaniWeb site had some way to mark these types of posts, shuch that they could be given a low priority, or even hidden from view, that would really help me. Then I do not have to wade through them when I am looking to help the people that legitimately need help and should be getting my attention.
I think that no one person's opinion should cause this, it should require at least 3 votes of HOMEWORK, and after that be removed from the stream of new posts presented to me when I log in.
The OP should be told what and why, and once yanked from the 'new' posts list, the post should be reviewed by an official reviewer from DaniWeb to see what happens next.
I hereby volunteer to review these posts, once the code/system is in place to allow the voting.
What do the rest of you think?
Would this improve YOUR DaniWeb experience?
It would absolutely improve mine.
