Default people asking for image resizing at the "somebody help" section

i think there should be a rule against that. the help section is for questions, and asking people to resize is not a question, it's asking them to DO something for you. those people should go to a graphics shop and ask for a resize, or use a guide and resize their own graphics. recently i see a lot more of those requests in the help section, i think that's too much. it doesn't matter if there's a request or two once a while, but currently there are just to much of those requests, to my opinion. what do you people think?

It's being posted in the wrong section. I think that you're supposed to post those in the graphics section...

Actually I beg to differ. I've seen a lot of helpful re-sizers helping people out in the Somebody Help! section.

Although I agree that these should be posted in the Avatar and Signature section, I see no problem with them being in the Somebody Help! section. I mean, they need help, isn't that what the section is for? And a lot less people visit the A&S section of the forum.

Anyway, maybe the rules should confirm you should post it in one or the other, or certify it's okay to post in both.

Default Re: people asking for image resizing at the "somebody help" section

Well, it is in the Somebody Help section, and they are just asking for help, which there is nothing wrong against. But I personally think it would be better for them to put it in the A/S section because in the Somebody Help section, people go there to make helpful nonfluff posts, so there are a lot of times almost 30 posts on one resizing section. And I don't really think that resizing something should be counted as a nonfluff post. But I could be wrong.

Default Re: people asking for image resizing at the "somebody help" section

I think sometimes people don't always think it is okay to post threads that are not shops in the Avatars & Signatures section, and that is why they post them in the Somebody Help! section. (: I think maybe just a sticky with"GRAPHIC RE-SIZES" in the title would work well (inside there would be a link to the A/S section explaining why it is better to post there.)

Along with that, any member who wants to become a GT can get some of their 50 posts by saying something along the lines of posting in the A/S section would give you better results. =)

But I also agree with you that there are more threads being posted for requests instead of questions, and that could be the beginnings of a change in that section's purpose.

I disagree. I always am there to help them; though it would probably be better to post in the A/S section, doesn't mean they can't post in the Somebody Help! section.

I agree, Bree. I posted a resize request because i know more members visit the somebody help section more than the A/S section, so i would get more help. So, sorry but I don't support this idea.

I notice that most of the threads in the somebody help section are made by newer members. When I was brand new and had no idea how to do things, I'd be a little timid and shy to post a thread in the avatar and signature section. I think members are more comfortable with help threads then asking people to create things, so that means more Somebody Help! threads.

Agreed with both of them.
And actually, I put one in the Somebody Help a couple weeks ago, and they actually moved it to the A/S section.
