Im starting to notice that :/ Guess ill start using the math section too
The social science group isn't too bad but @dmndlife24 has helped me A LOT!!
Posting in math if it is not math means you are spamming. Other alternatives are to tag people and post the url for this post in the chat.
Doesn't help. And it's not spamming when people in the math section are willing to answer because no one here will.
@im_no_smarty_pants When you signed up to use this site you agreed tho the Code of Conduct, see this section: ``` Don't spam! Common forms of spam include: Posting a question multiple times within a short period of time. Posting a question that is off topic for a particular group (i.e. posting a physics question in the Mathematics group). Posting a reply that is not relevant to the topic of discussion within that question. Posting questions that are not, in fact, questions (for example, starting a question in the Mathematics group to wish someone "Happy Birthday"). Sending the same chat message repeatedly. Filing false abuse reports on a user repeatedly. ``` So yes, what you are doing is spamming. I used to help out in the economics section, however... People ask questions without showing their attempts, and simply just want an answer, which is not how to use this site.
Most people don't show attempts because they don't know how to solve the problem there asking. That's why there asking. Ive asked questions and no one has even gone on my questions. Also its not spamming when people help on the question that is asked and many economic questions are math related.
Mathematics is a tool used in economics. Economics is a practice, and theory it is not suitable to put a lot of economic questions inside of the mathematics group since most deal with situational theory, not calculations. As for not showing attempts, for people to not show their attempts because they do not know how to solve the problem, merely is wrong, showing an attempt can be an attempt at even trying to understand the problem (or researching keywords in a question). When did I ask for people to show they could solve the problems or even attempt to solve for the problem. The reality is attempts, would fall anything related to the question that they understand. Things that are economics, but not mathematics can simply be shown, for example: How did Marxism view the economic system called capatilism? How does GDP determine the level of development of a country? Questions that could be economics, and mathematics, for example: How does a person find the annual interest of a bank account, (+15%)? Either way most people here will not help you until you try to help yourself.
The reason you do not usually see attempts on here isn't because they didn't try, they obviously don't understand the question but tried it BEFORE posting it on here. And as for the posting an economics question in the math section, first of all, yes. Math is needed in economics a lot. Second, anytime I did that it was not on purpose, I removed it as soon as I realized it was the wrong group but people WILLINGLY, got that? WILLINGLY still answered my question. So back off because I did absolutely nothing wrong.
The economics group is kind of small :(.....but yeah i would post in the social sciences section. The best thing to do is copy and paste the question's URL in the chats and/or tag people you know can help you.
Again, they could attempt to Google part of the question, there are plenty of people who do that, and then say exactly what they fail to understand. Posting a question, and not even saying or giving hint to what they are confused to only makes it harder for people to help them. This site does not allow direct answers. This site also does not allow posting questions in the wrong section, your original post implies, that is what you are doing. See: "I post my economics questions in the math section and I get better results. I would not recommend anyone posting questions here." No indication that it was an accident, "I post" impliens explicit action. I never said that economics is not related to mathematics, just that mathematics goes into theory of social structures something mathematics does not touch. (I gave you an example.) Even if people willing answered your question, the mathematics section is not to be used for economic related questions. You agreed to this when you signed up. (The CoC has something against this, not anything against answering non-related questions.) This post you currently have is also considered against the Code of Conduct: http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct The group OpenStudy Feedback is more optimal for complaints of group activity, and may actually promote this group to be more active. As @dmndlife24 hinted, using the chat is a good way to attract attention for help.
@Algorithmic are you seriously still typing? Don't waste your time because I'm sure it's not important. And you're probably wrong.
Just read the Code of Conduct. Something you already agreed to when you first signed up. No need for hostility when I am merely the messenger.
@Algorithmic you think we haven't thought to use google? I don't know about anyone else but that's the first thing I do. I may not have said it was an accident but I didn't say it was on purpose either.
I am not saying to Google your questions, I am say there should be at least some effort shown that a person has taken time to understand the question. A number of things can be done to show that. Other users have been able to comply with such, and they had zero idea on what their question was about.
Did I ask you to be the messenger? I knew someone would be so big headed to say something about this post but thank god it was you because I'm sure anyone else could've done a better job at proving me wrong. You however, simply failed to make me see anything except your annoyance.
"Again, they could attempt to Google part of the question, there are plenty of people who do that, and then say exactly what they fail to understand." That's not saying google your questions? Then please, tell me what it is saying.
I am just following the rules, something you seem completely oblivious to. Seriously: http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct "Again, they could attempt to Google part of the question, there are plenty of people who do that, and then say exactly what they fail to understand." That's not saying google your questions? Then please, tell me what it is saying. > "part of the question" Assume a question is: "How many different Marxist views are there on a free market?" Googling will return not an exact answer, a user still has the ability to Google keywords, and at least understand the basis of the question. (e.g. 'free market', 'Marxist views on free markets'.)
This has gone too far. You need to learn when to say when @Algorithmic. I'll close this question but that doesn't mean I'm done telling people not to use the economics section. All this post was supposed to do was make a point that no one EVER helps in this section. Whether you attempt the question or not.
I was pointing out the reason why many people who used to help here got fed up, and left. The reason is quite simple, people here fail to follow the rules often. > "I'll close this question but that doesn't mean I'm done telling people not to use the economics section." That is fine by me, however just do not promote off topic posting in other groups, and keep your 'telling people' to your private messages. Posts like these are spam. Peace.
