I am going to nag any way ... User Profile data
« on: May 23, 2010, 08:05:58 pm »
People, I am long enough in this forum to realize , that we have good quality of members.

Good quality =  educated + good characters + positive charged + clean language + humor + they can take teasing ...

And even the ones that does not know how to tease in English,
they get trained , like @shafri does..    ;D ;D

I have only one complain .. related with the public user profile of some members.
It looks that they hate to write down , their country and age ..

All that I can tell , are that by adding this info , you are helping the other members,
so to help you with more specific answers , in anything related with suggestion of products or services.
And helps even of finding people of your own country.

Personally from now and on , I will stop replying to any one with blank profile.
In my eyes looks like disrespect to hide your self that much.

I think thats the silliest thing i've read yet on the forum. Why on earth would anyone feel disrespected if you didn't fill in your age/location. We're not ASL'ing on AOL.

If its pertinent to the information given that you need to know something like, just take the initative and ask, don't just blindly label everyone who doesn't automatically do what you want. After all you mentioned they can take a teasing, i'm quite sure they'd answer age/location if you really needed to know.

Believe it or not , the "how to"  about building forums , was not my idea  ;D
(adding fields about country and age)

Believe it or not , the forums are made by having in mind that the "people - members" will socialize.

If you are use to, to socialize with the mask of Zorro in your face , its your right to do so.

As about me , I am not going to ask 1000 members about their country and age..
As I had clearly explain , it serves their best interest to inform the community.
Not me .... the community.
 
And I , I am acting as one reminder.

Hiding a person's age and location is a synonim of personal data protection.

How on earth would the age affect an answer you would give to someone? Especially within an electronics design forum.

Yeah that's a little ridiculous.  It's not like it would be accurate anyways, you can just put in whatever you want.

Well the forum does not kills , but the electricity it does ...

How about offering an advice for an adult , and this to be followed by a kido , he will be on risk.
So I do not give a shit about personal data protection.

Thats my opinion , any way..

Personally I don't think its a big deal either way.  But if it helps some members post more targeted replies, then we might as well do it.

I thought you had manners.

It seems that the EEVblog forum is going to need some moderators.

This is completely ridiculous. You are not on a dating website or something like that and I see no reason not to reply to someone because you don't know is age or where he live  ??? But hey, you can do what you want, you are on the internet, no one care...

Sorry again for my bad english

This is not dating webside. Anonymity is most big power in whole internet. Of course this have goods and bads. But why categorize peoples by age, profession, education... maybe next somebody want all peoples put they faces public. Of course example I am very very old. maybe you think that I can not do any things with AVR, PIC, FPGA etc... hah. Do you know what is biasing. Avoid biasing you need hide lot of things. More you tell who you are and wqhat is you education, what is your age, profession and other things..even political opinions and so on...more you get biasing. I think it is more clever to read only what peoples write and hide as much as possible all things what may produce biased opinions about what other peoples write.

I think more important is what peoples write. What you say is more important that who you are. If you know who write you go biased... you realize it or it affect as hidden biasing what is even more danger.

If I tell yopu that xxxx pin 18 voltage is between 11.99875 and 11.99923 V and 97% of 1000 samples are  between 11.99905 and 11.99917 and current is 170 - 180nA. What hell you need my age and country. Do you trust more if I tell you that I am Greek. If I am from Kiriwati or Philippines do you think I lie.

So, is it important who write or what he write? I have see lot of lies from well known scientists. I have seen well documented things from young hobbyist so that I can full trust. (and vice versa)

IMHO this is not dating chat and...

 .... I hope Kiriakos can be now silent becouse I have not age and country or other personal data. (I hope he stay behind his own words. Kiriakos: "Personally from now and on , I will stop replying to any one with blank profile." )

I drive a LEC (low el. consumption) BEV car. Smoke exhaust pipes - go to museum. In Finland quite all electric power is made using nuclear, wind, solar and water.

Wises must compel the mad barbarians to stop their crimes against humanity. Where have the wises gone?

I agree with the majority here, and not with Kiriakos.
Whilst I have personally always fully identified myself on all online forums, and do have a better opinion of those who also do the same, I respect everyone's right to anonymity, and ultimately judge people based on what they say, not who they are or how they wish to identify themselves.
I think it's silly not to talk to someone on a forum simply they don't identify themselves, the content is what matters, but hey, each is free to chose what they want to do. So if Kiriakos wants to do that he can go right ahead, just don't expect anyone else to care or do the same!

Dave.

I guess we'll never know what Kiriakos thinks of your take, Dave, because you haven't listed your age in your profile!

well it is nice to know where someone is from but it's not much of a deal if you want to be anonymous, if thats so maybe your loss if we can't offer country specific solutions but I don't see the point in all the hoo haa over it. Of course you can generally spot young indian electronics students a mile off by their style of english and writing questions but then you may have to have good english yourself to tell the difference  ;D

Australians live in a democracy (allegedly).

To say to others "you must do this to participate" is somewhat dictatorial behaviour, and you have no right to enforce that on others.

It is my personal choice not to reveal every minor detail about my personal life on a public internet page.
Besides, if anyone does add an age, who's to say that age is factual and correct, likewise the country?

It really is a surprising attitude for someone of an alleged age of 41 that they will not answer others who rightfully choose not to reveal such details.....

So long as we all act with decorum there is nothing wrong with how things are.

Any one who hides his age  ...  he is underage aka a Kid , that afraid s that no one will speak to him ..

Is that clear ??   clear as the water ?  Yes it is ..

Country - flag - nationality ...  

Is this an international forum ?  Yes I hope ..
Do we have  flaming or basing with countries ?   So far none.
Do we have issues with the technology that China exports ?  Yes with the half of them  ;D
Is this a reason  to flame an Chinese citizen ?  No  and its madness if some one does that.

My mother and father had teach me, in my childhood,  of how to behave properly.
And In real life , I found that socializing equals to public exposure. ( Freelancer )

Even Dave exposes him self , at the ultimate public exposure level.  

I was hopping that I found a place as forum , that I finally have to deal with my one cast of people,
technicians  practical or theoretical ,  the same quality of people like me ..

I was probably mistaken ,  and if so, I have no intention to spent electricity  - human energy - and time ,  speaking with damn avatars and non existent personality s.

And some ones "smart enough"  started talking that its like  " Kiriakos VS the planet " or something ...
As debate or  " attempt for Administration " ..  

Well I will just say , if you plan to stay hidden like the turtles, just do so .

Every attempt of my, for public Polls ,  in the reality looks to have failed .
We have in the counters  1000 members , that all that they care for , are one good laugh.

I had even try , to present few things , and force or motivate others to respond and react ,
with ultimate target , this community to become truly active .
To become an source of knowledge ...
Instead of that I got web links , to some other, more skilled and specialized forums.  
  
I am not keeping any hard feelings, to any one "speaking against" avatar ,
all that I care about, are the true people ..  simple as that.

Dave is one of them ...  and another 8-9 members .. so far .

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Ahhh I love be the " rock of the scandals "   :D  
Or widely known as the  motivator of reactions ...  or the rock that falls in to the pod and cause splashes.

But all those for an ultimate cause, other than my microscopic ego ...  :)

Any way I took new decisions , about my " forum life " , I will start to spent less and less by the day,
time in it.
Probably, by asking from strangers to become members and friends to its other ,
its harder than anything ..

Yep kids with grey hair.  ;D :D :o

Seriously, this sort of behaviour is pure and simple discrimination.
It simply does not matter if these personal details are missing.

The content of the messages will clearly indicate age and experience which is not found on the back of a Corn Flakes box.
If you don't like it, so be it.  ::)

I totally agree  .... thats why no matter how hard some kids are trying to hide ,
their Corn Flakes boxes ...  the knowledgeable will always know the truth ..

About moderation ... is this another bluff or banana to step on it..?
I am a very dynamic man, productive,  and my last wish would be to moderating an kindergarten.
Even at the last recoded video of Dave ,  the 98% of the questions was ... what to study ? what to do ? where to go ?  

It looks like , that the young ones, just looking for guidance ...  I am hundreds steps ahead .. I have other needs.
