Anyone want to handle this?

Steve Jones, 2005-12-14

I get a lot of email at SQLServerCentral.com on a variety of topics. Complaints about my writing, comments on the site, problems, etc. But there are a couple things I don’t understand. The first is the amount of stuff submitted through our problem report page.

It plainly says in large red letters that if you have a SQL question, click a link and post a question in the forums. But I still get lots of SQL questions sent through and I have a standard signature setup that asks people to post in the forums that I send back.

The second thing that amazes me (apart from the all caps) is this type of question:

THIS IS REQUEST TO YOU THAT I WANT TO MAKE A PROJECT FOR SQL SERVER 2000 SO

PLESE HELP ME HOW TO MAKE IT AND SEND ME TOTAL INFORMATION ABOUT SQL SERVER 2000

. YOU CAN SEND ME THE DEVELOPER OF SQL SERVER 2000 AND SO MORE INFORMATION .

THIS PROJECT IS VERY URGENT SO PLS SEND ME ALL THE INFORMATION

ASAP.

 
AWATING FOR YOUR QUICK REPLY.

How can this even be a question you ask someone? Either this is an assignment from academia or some project from work, but in either case, if you need this much help urgently, perhaps you should seek employment or study elsewhere.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
