Give me your opinion about Copy-Paste answers

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

In my opinion it can be both good and bad.

If the pasted message is helping the user and is actually solving the problem then i think it's a good thing.

However, if the message is near unrelated to the question and doesn't solve the issue at all then i would rather have that person not use copy and pasted messages.

To be honest, I see it quite annoying. Some people seem to be so focused in being seen as helpful that they reply to every posts in the Help section, lots of times just with the same copy/pasted answer. Sometimes it's helpful, others it isn't. What I don't understand is how, being the Help section strictily moderated, some of those messages get to appear, when they are clearly unrelated to the topic. And some of these people even use copy/paste with replies from other users in previous topics and don't have the decency of mentioning the real author. I can tell because it has happened to me, one user sent a reply that I found very "familiar". Looked into my content and saw that it was the exact same reply that I had sent to another topic several weeks earlier, posted by this person as if it were his. I have sent replies from other users, but I always use quotes, not copy/paste, to let everyone see that the solution had been given previously and by whom.

 

Sadly, there are these people who think that they'll be accepted more easily into the team by flooding all Help topics with just 2-3 answers, pasting one or the other, depending on the topic. They should realize that it's a lot more helpful, for the topic and for their chances to be seen as support-team worthy, if they take the time and effort to work their own answers instead of using the same ones over and over, every day.

If they can Copy-paste answers to solve a problem is because the Help topic is "copy-pasted" also...

 

So the real problem may be all these Help topics  which are solved on previous topics , but there are no visible enough or the players who need help do not use the Search function...

Hello,

it is good for me as long as we receive the information or help that we would Need/Like to receive.

 

Sure, but most copy paste links have many informations... So you have to filter every link for your needs. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

It's bad either way, it's really not that hard to change up a few words and come up with something that at least doesn't sound like a bot printed out.

I agree that it is annoying.
Personally, I would like anyone who wants to help me to write his personal opinion in his own formulation and not copy one on one from someone else.
