    Copytechnet Forum

    I must be one of a dying generation that had courtesy, customer service, and integrity as a core business model. My intent when joining Copytechnet was to contribute to and benefit from the collective knowledge of the professionals in our industry. When I respond to a question or have a solution to someone's headache its because I have experienced the issue and have a solution or feel I can contribute to the knowledge base as a whole. If I care (which I don't) if someone is "factory trained" or not because of the nature of their question or need a reason for why they have the gall to ask [the service elite] for help then I don't provide a response. I believe it represents a lack of character on my part if my response is to call out someone's question with a response that is only meant to show everyone else I am above answering your question based on how smart I think am. You know who you are, I see this crap all the time on here. If you don't have a solution or want to help then shut the fuck up and don't respond.

    What in the world? Chill out. This place has been nothing short of great to me. And if you think you're smart, you should read some posts from some of the experts on this site...they're REALLY smart. Really, really smart.

    ever heard of what a enabler is? I dont prefer to reinforce lazyness. theres alot of them here from time to time...(one hit wonder posts, you know where they are)

    if someone went out of their way to search for an answer, got no hits. come here, look for help given the following

    1. you have used the search function
    2. you have exhausted options available to you (factory certified or not)

    then, happy to help

    Kyocera has sort of keep their QA up to date since techs were starting to use it more, Canon and Konica are generally pretty good. and HP? have a six pack with ya, just in case you get lost in their WISE search function.

    but since few years ago, there has been many lazy attempts here. I backed away from forum because even half arse solution has been posted. there has been less attempt to find what "solution" is, but more so temporary workarounds.

    But this is not to say this forum in its entirety has gone bad, but the "anything goes" culture in the younger generation is showing here sometimes as well.


    i dont see any reason for animosity tho.

    One of the main reasons i like the site is because its by technicians for technicians. Also enjoy the community. Would be good if we can be patience with each other. Then there are guys that really should not be on the other end of a tool.


    What about a 20 pointer quiz on printer theory that needs to be passed before you can sign-up for an account. Keep the riffraff out.
    Just kidding.
    Whatever

    Absolutely agree! Unfortunately the likes seems to be under 1% ...
    Truly lazy society today. Sometimes I'm close to the point being disgusted and it ain't going any better.
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    100% agree, when I first joined this was a really friendly site, I've had a few years where I wasn't particularly active, I've recently come back on, and all I see is name calling, rudeness, and trying to prove you're better than someone else. To my mind, if I have no helpful input, then I don't say anything at all
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary maths and those who don't

    I heard today this phrase "driving is simple thing...but it's not for simple people"
    Maybe just pass very basic intelligence test for membership?
    Besides allan is one of the coolest guys around here and I generally don't agree that this forum should be only sterile place for best professionals. Some moderate degree of entertainment should be added to keep this place alive.
