    rant and raving!

    -.- recently more so than ever, im getting more and more people on AIM/MSN asking me for help... sadly

    they all start with
    how do you
    and end with
    thanks

    sadly since everyone on aim/msn seems to think i live to help them out, im getting rather sick of it -.-

    homebrew is not for the lazy, this has been said to death =\

    one was a guy who asked me how to do the savemii wad uninstall, and it ended with him having 2 weeks to figure it out as his modchip came, and he still ended up asking me how -.-

    another guy.. decides he wants to ask me 6 "last questions" -.-

    seriously if you want 1 on 1 support from me, and want to pass all your troubles to me, i EXPECT PAYMENT! because that is rude and uneeded, and im getting to the point i might remove them so people will not do this to me in the future

    This is exactly why I stopped linking my chat info on forums. The only solution is to keep a WiiHacks AIM SN in the event you feel like taking open questions. Having a shared personal / forum AIM SN is a nightmare.

    Admiral, I can't imagine what you go thru! I only see whats on the forums, ppl asking the same questions over and over before ever reading ONE guide or FAQ!!

    I'm tired of reading the post where ppl ask if they can play backups without a modchip or what are WADS, etc.!! I had that same questions a month ago and you know what I did?! I read for hours on here and finally did the HBC etc and now I have a butt load of games to play!!! Without asking one technical question on here. I had plenty of questions but I searched and read and always found the answer!

    Everything that needs to be asked already has been 100X over. We've answered them so many times over ... and over ... and over. Folks think that their situation is unique, but it's really not considering everyone follows the same guides.

    If we tell people to search, we get yelled at for being not moderator-like. If we answer properly, people get their info and never post again.

    Are there any non staff folks that be recruited to be "mentors" for the newbies to help relieve the stress from the actual forum staff. I myself try to jump in when I think I can help. I am no expert but can certainly try. But I have to think there are others with better experience than myself we could use to help out.

    @ At90s2313: we dont have the man power for that, we have a few people able to do it, im sure you and Rossy could do it.... but if you only did a few.... people get pissed that they arnt special enough to get TOP TIER treatment

    in addition, most of these people dont put in the time past the wii... to the topic, look at it like this, we make tons of guides or past topics, yet they never help, its clear the adverage atleast posting user is just asking not looking.... i would like to see a program but i dont see one helping them, or helping the forum get better
    • noob, forum would just be another neglected forum
    • Rec Faq, no one really add's to either guide, and most people avoid looking there first
    • Search, well theres tons of great topics but they overlook it
    • compulation threads, too much to read!
    • etc


    now lets look at this forum, you dont need to be a master to figure out most problems, since their common... realisticly you can go from nothing... read all the guides, and then master that, read topics for 2 weeks and become just about the master in their eyes =\

    the big thing, that appears often enough to become a problem... is people think their time is valuable and they dont have enough time to look for their issues... its mantality like this that insults me, and leads me twords my rants, that people openly say their time is more valueable than someone like myself....

    heres a good example
    popibros1 says (7:54 PM):
    *so i need a REAL zelda and i need to use tucha....whats tucha (noobish question sry)
    Fleet Admiral Victorinox says (7:54 PM):
    *man
    *youre ****** worthless
    popibros1 says (7:54 PM):
    *sorry
    Fleet Admiral Victorinox says (7:55 PM):
    *-.-
    *you HAD WEEKS
    *to learn how to do this
    *and you didnt spend a min figuring it out
    popibros1 says (7:55 PM):
    *dude i've been very busy
    *with school and etc
    Fleet Admiral Victorinox says (7:55 PM):
    *and im not
    *im just some loser who sits here and magicly fixes all you lazy f***s problems?
    that guy banner bricked THREE weeks+ ago, and look at what he had to say when he needed the program.... its not that these people do anything, its one of those... "all the data is out of date" all this all that....

    i think its safe to say, unless 3.5 comes out, there isnt gonna be anything new in the HB community or really modchip community...

    SINCE 3.4 heres all the things i remember comming out....
    • Cios 249
    • Cios 37 Rev 3
    • Cios 36 Rev 7
    • new Softchip loader
    • mii channel update
    • twilight hack beta 2
    • downgraders
    • the error 002 fix's
    • and finally a few new ribbon style modchips + flatmii

    so thats all thats changed in idk 2 months+ -,_-, there are tons of little apps, but their nothing useful =\ or something that anyone is gonna go OMG new world of hacking.... things like starfall have existed, and never got a better app, or the ISO loaders are all about patchs and edits -,_-, its just.... yeah
