Maybe we are asking questions too stupid for them to answer ?
My reasons for not answering every single stupid question?
1. I am a qualified Mikrotik Consultant and Mikrotik Trainer - please explain why I should give away all the answers I know for free? Can I tell my bank every month, no worries about your bank loan, I gave some free advice on a MT Forum instead of charging for all my hard work setting up an identical setup on my Routerboards and coming up with an answer as to why some setup does not work. So, I now have no money to pay you with as I spent all my time doing that for free, but that's OK as I helped some stupid questions get answered? So now I have made one guy happy he has a solution and I end up with no house. Yeah - great idea!
2. As "time is money", why should I waste that time trying to understand what the heck someone is trying to explain? Sometimes I have asked again and again for more detailed information and all I got in return was more complaints that I am not helping with a solution. For free. So after a few messages with the original poster not actually doing what I have asked them to do, I give up. I simply don't have the time or the patience to deal with people who cannot read the wiki, read the manual or even how to google!
3. Some questions are so stupid I get tired reading them and on principle refuse to even bother replying to them. "I want to build a WISP using only Mikrotik equipment, please can someone list all the bits I need and also explain how to set it all up? Thanks." - Oh, come on!
4. I have a family. I prefer to spend my free time with them than sitting in front of my computer answering stupid questions!
OK i understand your frustrations. I wasnt directly asking you as a member more just pointing out my frustrations at this board. As i said there are some very smart members out there and i do include you in this list as i see you respond to a lot of problems.
I have a house aswell, and a family . I even have a van too. Yes these wont get paid by answering questions on this board.
So far i have learned mikrok from scratch by myself ! From finding out how to login up to reconfiguring and replacing radio cards and basic testing. I even had to figure out how to access the unknown password by using some web tools. I even had to learn some linux commands to sort this out.
So after i read all the wikis and instructions and after reading probably every post in this forum I did not think it was a big problem to ask a few questions ?
From what i can tell there are no answers to my questions either in the manual or on the board. Even google cant give me any help.
I would have no problems studying an online certification for this but I cant find one. There are no local classes. China is a bit far !
I was not looking for an easy fix ! I dont mind what extra work i have to do.
As you quoted earlier about giving away the answers ! I would like to think that you know the answers !
Can you/anyone even help by answering if my questions are stupid ? I would take it as a valid answer ?
Maybe there is something i have missed ? Actually after this sort of reply I feel like i missed the whole thing ?
