Quoting someone when asking a question

#1 Post by Lord Hisu » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:33 pm

Not really a Renpy or programming question, I know, but I will ask anyways.
I know my questions are not simple, and sometimes they don't really have a right answer, so that limits the amount of people here who can be of some help or at least start a discussion.

Said that, recently I have been resisting the urge to quote people I know could help or at least give some thoughts about the topic, just to make them see my post. Is that bad? I don't ask that many questions, so I think it wouldn't be a bother for whoever I quote, but that's really relative.

What do you guys think? You would be bothered to be quoted in one of my topics?

I don't think you should quote people as a means to ping them. It puts people in an awkward situation of looking like a jerk if they don't have time to answer you right then. It puts pressure on people. Post your question and let people who are moved to answer, answer. Just my 2cents.
A Close Shave:
*Last Thing Done (Aug 17): Finished coding emotions and camera for 4/10 main labels.
*Currently Doing: Coding of emotions and camera for the labels--On 5/10
*First Next thing to do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Next Next thing to do: Set up film animation
*Other Thing to Do: Do SFX and Score (maybe think about eye blinks?)

That's exactly the type of feedback I wanted. Thanks!
