OK, we’re really going to have to get peple to start using the search facility a bit more. This was in my PM box when I got back from a meeting…

how do u make them thumbnail, ne chance u can help me make a picture page like where its a slide up top as thumbnail and when clicked it opens reg size below or know where i can find a tutorial about that
I’m certain there’s a tutorial on this on if they just spent 30 seconds looking…

Sorry about the rant here. Bad day all round at work so I’m pretty edgy anyway. :smirk:

LOL, we get worse questions like that. Some like…

“How do you open a new browser window in Flash”

“How do you make a button in Flash”

“How do you make a preloader in Flash”

"I just started Flash about an hour ago, I was wondering if there was any way to create a fully functional live chat room with an AIM type instant messaging system. And oh yeah, my server doesn’t support CGI, ASP, PHP, or have a mySQL database. Can someone please tell me how to do this? Remember, I am a newbie :slight_smile: "

Yep… things like that.

the one I always love:

“please explain like you would to a baby.”

I have seen that a few times.

ahhhhh I HATE THAT!!!

Reply with…

first you open up flashy washy

Then you … gah gah weeeeeee boof :fart:

Thats like a baby no?

wow. lol

actually i would just eat them. :crazy:

haha, babyeater :stuck_out_tongue:

yeah, whenever I get mad I always walk around saying that i want to eat babies. It freaks some people out…

"What is an FLA? "

“I want to make a flash website but I don’t know HTML. Can you help me make a site like”

I still just point them in the direction of the search button. I know it can seem condescending sometimes… but whoever said I was a nice mod? :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s way too tempting to be sarcastic with these guys, especially after a rough day at work… ;smirk:

We ought to make more of the search thing though. I don’t know, like make it a big flashing arrow or something. :slight_smile:

**"What is an FLA? " **

That reminds me last month along I told 3 people that their site wasn’t showing because they were trying show the .fla file!!!

They didn’t know you have to publish the .swf file and they thought embedding the .fla file would make it work!!!

These people need to be introduced to the help files of Flash before they even start :sure:

You guys should simply create a default message that you can copy and paste over and over again for people who ask questions WITHOUT making any effort in trying to figure it out on their own.

I have started using one for every Flash help e-mail I get =)

Kirupa :rd:

Hmm, I don’t have any default message for when people e-mail me for Flash help.

I just delete :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok, not all the time, it depends on the question.

i’m going to make a new footer. :slight_smile: take a look in about 15 minutes

there. I like it. :slight_smile: I will be modifying it later, but just for starters… :slight_smile:

HAHAHAHAH!!! I love it!!!

hmmm I never get anything like that :-\

consider yourself lucky…

:frowning: i don’t see anything.

yeah my server is down for some reason…
