    Lightbulb Spoonfeeding.

    It has been discussed lately that there has been a problem with too many users, myself one of them spoonfeeding new users and the detrimental effect it may have on new users(i.e. dependency and not really knowing what's going on. Having been too dependent for too long on others, I'm changing now and suggesting we stop writing big sections of other people's code for them.....unless they are truly as lost as a goose in the woods during a hail storm, then we can give them a nudge in the right direction by writing a larger than normal part of the code...this time...for them. How about that. And the discussion should be here, not in "What's Wrong with My Code?", lest copeg skin me alive.

    This is something that we will address properly soon. We are about to compile an official list of forum rules and guidelines.

    This will cover everything from spoonfeeding to cross posting etc.

    Everyone will then know what position we take on these subjects and will stop problems in the future.

    We will shortly be rolling out a major forum upgrade. You can expect the new rules to come into place along side this release.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
