Looking back at your own posts

Today, I was (still am by the way, 4 hours left) making a back-up of my laptop (which is a good habit) and it is taking quite some time. So I decided to take a look around on wiihacks, because I still needed to download some things that I need to softmod the wii of a family member of mine. Suddenly, I started wondering what had happened to the threads I had reacted to. Had the problem been solved? Did things go wrong? Was my advice of any help, and if not, whose was and what could I learn from it?

So, I decided to use the search engine to find all the threads I reacted on and the results were quite interesting. I discovered for example, I had given bad advice more often than I had thought I would have (off course, everyone believes their advice is correct). For example, in one post, I had overlooked the system menu in a sys check and had redirected the poster to the "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" guide, while the poster was on system menu 4.2 ( whoops ). In another, I recommended cIOSX rev19 to fix things, whilst cIOS249 rev17 would have been a safer choice.

So why did I make a blog post about all this? Well, because I believe everyone should once in a while take a look at his or her own posts. Nobody is perfect and everyone can make a mistake. So if your have some free time on your hands and don't know what to do, why not take a look at your own posts?

Small side note: I don't know for certain whether this post belongs here, but I believe it does. Furthermore, I believe this could result in better advice being given of wiihacks, to the benefit of the whole wiihacks community. If it does not belong here, please accept my apologies.

    Nope looks fine to me and I think it's excellent advice for advice givers. We're only human and mistakes do happen. Good of you to share your experience of personal growth with and for the community.

    I agree with both the content and the placement as a Blog. As humans, we make mistakes and we are fortunate in that we can look back and learn from our mistakes. In looking back, I hope most can also see an improvement in ability to communicate to a diverse community, maybe gained a broader perspective, and learned flexibility in problem-solving. It sounds as you are well-positioned for these benefits. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience.
