Default Don't Be Afraid To Intervene Sometimes!

Hey, everyone
Often times when looking through the forum (mostly in the Somebody Help section), a person will ask a question and get an unclear or incorrect answer from a member. This isn't their fault at all, but don't just let it go! I sometimes will quote the incorrect information and say


"This is true for another situation, but for _____ you could try ______",
or
"I think that you actually need ______ for that particular game, not _______".

That way, the person who asked the question doesn't try the wrong thing, and get frustrated, and you've let the responding person know for next time what to tell someone!

Just a reminder

Awesome reminder to everyone. Great example how to respond to someone constructively and politely. I always struggle sometimes how to word it because I don’t want to offend anyone but do want to help our with the correct information.

This is a great idea.
It's not rude at all, you're just correcting the person.
I like it

great point! if they have the wrong idea, its not anybodys fault! no one on here would try to mislead someone else, its just a misunderstanding. always be careful to be nice when correcting them. also, dont be mad if someone corrects you. there just trying to help you, not to start a fight or make you feel bad.
