I would like to know why I have been given this warning:



You have been given a warning by .josh.

Reason: Other
Not trying to be anal but...

You've been a member for almost 4 years, and have almost 1k posts...I think you should know by now to use code tags in your posts!



I am pretty sure i use code tags. always, maybe i forgot.


To that end, I will not be helping on this forum anymore. A warning for not posting code tags? wtf? I couldn't post unless i "acknowledged" the warning. This is like school. I have helped people on here because i like helping. not to be a part of some crazy mans empire.


Maybe i just forgot to use code tags, and i get a warning like that, this forum is dead to me because of this admin.


Bye bye

I only post quality responses. Read them carefully, or i'll burn you!

 I don't think it's too much to expect regular members to use code tags.  And I'm sure you did just forget.  Which is why it was a 1 point warning that expired almost immediately.  I mean really, it was the equivalent to a PM.


Also, this happened like 7 months ago.  You're just now getting around to seeing it and saying something about it?  Which means you haven't been active for like 7 months.  I think someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.  

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Donate to me! || Donate to phpfreaks!
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

To add to Josh's point, when you don't use code tags, usually in order to make your post readable for the masses, one of the staff has to go in and edit your post and add them. If you're interested in helping others by posting answers, then I would think you would want your answers to be clear and readable right?

Even I am still here, don't leave out of just a frivolous ordeal, I've been hammered and verbally abused here as well.  I aint leaving, lol.  This place still has very smart PHPer's someone has to submit :P

I learn more on this site than I did in K-12 Grade...  (Barand Is a MYSQL King) I dont offer help to anyone anymore because I am the the person who needs help....
