So what were those top 10 newbie questions (from the top of you head)?

Excellent article. Thanks Sushila. And I agree with Jeff that this should be required reading.

Steve, any way to pin this article to the top of the heap?

Sushila, thanks for a great article!  I appreciate the time you took to go thru "older" posts and glean those quotes; reality is so much better than a made-up "for instance".  I also read more than I post, as I'm still trying to learn SQL server from a developers standpoint (coming from an MS-Access background).  It's obvious from the posts I've read that there is a dedicated core group here at SQLServerCentral that really likes to work on knotty problems, but they're always willing to help a newbie.  And most of them are very good about explaining complex solutions to the up-and-coming who post their questions.

Everyone has an aberant bad day now and then, so the occasional miffed post doesn't bother me; a trend would be of more concern.

And by the way, Sushila, I love your signature quote, and have since the first day I saw it.  It still makes me chuckle every time I see it - relevance as humor always has a place for me! 




Here there be dragons...,

A little human kindness goes a long way.  Let's all remember we're here to help one another.  Terrific article!

Great article!  Answering posts can be pretty tough, especially when the poster refuses to answer any questions posed by the person trying to help.

Excellent article!  I was once chased off of a forum by a scathing reply (not SSC!); don't think I have ever tried asking another question there. I had searched the forum for hours for an answer. I spent another hour trying to determine the correct location for my post. I obviously got it wrong according to one responder. Maybe you could add one more item to your article on manners ... If you're going to tell someone they are posting in the wrong location, perhaps you could suggest which is the correct location!

Wonderful article.  It is unfortunate that some people have trouble communicating nicely.  Your article is a great reminder and support for those who are doing their best to make this a great site.
