Your point is valid and I believe everyone really do try to behave accordingly, but ... and there is always a but, isnt there...
We see quite a few users posting on the forum for the first time, expecting others to solve their issues, asking questions like:
"I want my box to drop faster and move other box, how to do that"
"i want to make flappy bird app, can someone show me code"
"i want to center a ball but it is not centerd on screen, why? give me full code please"
and my favourite...
"here are my 2000 code lines, the bird doesnt flap. where is problem, help"
Then there is formatting. When asking for help it is imperative the post includes enough info so that someone who doesnt know the app can read it and understand the intentions. In most cases that means providing all code snippets involved in the problem. We see quite a few partial code postings, making it something between mission impossible and playing cluedo to try and find out whats going on.
One has to learn how to crawl before one can start walking, and one needs to walk steady before one can try running. Yet, I have the impression that many are just looking for a quick fix so they can get up and running from day one, which is impossible.
To learn coding one must first understand how code logic and setup function (pun intended). It's a little like, you wont be able to read russian before you have learned the russian alphabet. Any and all attempts are doomed to fail. Time spent studying is time well spent. Nothing will bring you faster up to speed than... good old fashioned studying.
People who read these forums are mostly users of different skill levels, and having to read incomplete, not to mention demanding and sometimes impolite posts, feels like a waste of everyones time. The result is people will unsubscribe and forum will slowly die as nobody read it anymore.
The main purpose of the forum is to have a place to ask other users for help when one is stuck with a problem after having tried to solve it troubleshooting own code step by step, reading the documentation, running and checking demo samples, and searching on google.
I often end up referring to the documentation when i know the question is explained there. Although I sometimes link to the related page directly, my purpose is to give a hint as where to find answers and learn corona, step by step.
I may sound like a broken record but I stand by it by my own experience.
Corona docs is all you need to get going
