1)I have never in my life met such a whiny bunch. Would you like some cheese with that?
2)Whenever I have a question they are very helpful indeed.
3)I have never had so many Zardoz thrown my way. My eyes may never recover, the horror!
4)Thank goodness the editor rides herd on this bunch so I can maintain my sanity.
5)I don't much care but like to snipe from the sidelines.
6)Needs more boobies.
7)Get off my lawn? Please?

People here are generally a knowledgeable, helpful, generous lot.
Despite my dislike of certain aspects of the site I keep coming back because of the people.

2 – Painting tips are very helpful.

Mako1111 May 2012 8:58 p.m. PST

Generally 2, but all of the above apply, in many cases.


9-All of the above also, but usually 2 and 6 the most.

Marcus Maximus11 May 2012 10:31 p.m. PST

Without doubt a 2.

shelldrake11 May 2012 10:40 p.m. PST

generally #2, but some are not very helpful at all

FoxtrotPapaRomeo12 May 2012 1:03 a.m. PST

Generally 2 and the others are either intentionally or unintentionally entertaining.

FusilierDan12 May 2012 2:37 a.m. PST

I'm going with #2

ashill412 May 2012 2:37 a.m. PST

2 – unfailingly helpful.

Midpoint12 May 2012 3:07 a.m. PST

If you have something specific and at least a little non-banal to ask then very helpful.

That being said, I do believe there is a segment that really, really doesn't like their own hobby.

galvinm12 May 2012 3:16 a.m. PST


Have never failed to receive an answer to a question.

Personal logo PzGeneral Supporting Member of TMP12 May 2012 3:21 a.m. PST


I think only once have I received a snarky answer…

If I can't find the answer, I ask TMP….

2, but I'll switch my vote to 8 if it means I would finally win a prize. grin


Tuudawgs12 May 2012 4:54 a.m. PST

2; only had a few questions but, somebody always has something helpful to add.

Brent2751112 May 2012 4:57 a.m. PST

These are the same people you will find around a gaming table. Some are more fun to be around then others.

Ron W DuBray12 May 2012 5:47 a.m. PST

Sadly some spend to much time attacking others thoughts and questions in ways not to get DHed for it.

2, but "needs more boobies" is always on the table.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP12 May 2012 6:58 a.m. PST

Other than the occassional azz hat, everyone is very helpful.

kreoseus212 May 2012 7:09 a.m. PST

Well said Bede, the older I get, the more the world can Bleeped text off !

Almost always 2. Helpful and friendly, often funny or at least weird. Most of the moaners have gone.

9) All of the above, but mostly #2.

Chocolate Fezian12 May 2012 10:23 a.m. PST

Mostly 2
But I would be very disappointed if I didn't get the odd bit of sarcasm

corporalpat12 May 2012 11:21 a.m. PST

2. Generally, questions are well and quickly answered. However, you do have to put up with silly/snarky comments, OCD perfectionist types, grumpy old farts, and cyber bullies along the way. You take the good with the bad.

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut12 May 2012 11:43 a.m. PST

2 & 6

ciaphas12 May 2012 11:44 a.m. PST

2, even if i have been stupid and have asked for something to be clarified always a helpfull answer and mostly someone to swing the topic off in a different direction. still managed to get 3 stiffles though.


Wolfprophet12 May 2012 11:51 a.m. PST

All of the both minus number 5.

14Bore12 May 2012 1:05 p.m. PST

Very Helpful

Lord Hypnogogue12 May 2012 2:23 p.m. PST

2. Though I think about 99% fall into this category with 1% being slightly snarky.

McKinstry Fezian12 May 2012 2:27 p.m. PST
