Hi

I am very new to this forum thing. How do I post a question? Yeah that's how new I am. I have a heater problem in my 1991 Subaru Legacy. The heater fan won't come on until the car is really warmed up and it doesn't warm up too quick with no fan. It just kicks in when it feels like it and it's cold up here where I live North of the 49th Parallel. By the time I get to town, where I work, it finally comes on. Any helpful hints would be very much appreciated especially by my cold toes. Thanks.

Post count. Its not a great system. It means you have things ranging from incredibly knowledgeable people listed as newbies, to complete knuckleheads who dole out dangerous advice on a regular basis listed as Gurus.

Many people, for many years have said we should go to a system that doesnt indicate a knowledge level, but they havent changed it yet. Maybe some day. It really shows its ugly head in situations where someone says "You are a newbie, I dont care what you think, I want to hear from a Guru who knows"

Yea, I agree. Many people can get their post count up pretty quick by just welcoming people in the newbie section, but it doesn't mean they know a damn thing about subies. Something you guys could try is a karma system, but limit it to just moderators who can increase or decrease karma, but instead of it being "karma" have it be a subie knowledge based point system where accurate answers to questions are given positive "karma" and those giving out bad info are given negative "karma" points.

The worst part is when the people who know very little, are great writers.

So you get these people, who READ a lot, and are excellent wordsmiths, replying to posts. At first glance they seem incredibly knowledgeable.

Then you read what they are saying, and its all based on theory, as none of it matches up to real world results.

Sadly, and no offense to you guys who fit this job/education description, most of have engineering degrees. For some reason for so many, the process of earning your engineering degree removes any capability of being able to grasp the concept of "what works on paper doesnt always work in real world application"
Of course this doesnt apply to all of them, but its a pretty established trend. So you have some of the smartest guys around, becoming some of the biggest problems around. Again, not all of them, but a lot.



Then we have the case from a few years back.

This person could talk, WOW could he talk the game. His posts sounded like you were talking to a 30 year master tech, and automotive engineer.

Unfortunately, almost everything he posted was wrong. In many cases, dangerously wrong. He regularly gave out advice and answers that if followed, would almost certainly cause damage and cost people money. But because he had a Guru title, and could talk the game, people believed him, and would chastize people who questioned him.



Then the day came. This was like a gift from heaven.

A buddy of his posted. Posted pictures of this person, and some facts about him.


He was 13 years old. He has never driven a car, likely never seen the underhood of a car in real life, and certainly had zero experience with a wrench. Everything he posted, was just him reading something, misunderstanding it, then spitting it back out how he understood it, or how he WANTED it to be. Basically, he was telling himself what he wanted to hear about many things.

The ownage was classic. I have a screenshot of the thread somewhere.


So you gotta be careful.




On the flipside you have guys who really DO know their stuff, but either dont word it in a way that sounds impressive, or they arent super tactful about the things they say. Perfect example is Uncle Scotty. He has forgotten more than many people here will ever know, yet because he typically comes off fairly abrasive, a lot of people write him off as not possibly knowing what he is talking about. Personally, I love the guy (ibyouloveguys)

Exactly.

And just to confuse things more..

Sometimes you get the guys who REALLY know their stuff, disagreeing, with both sides having very convincing arguements.

Hang around here a while, you will get a feel for who you should and shouldnt listen to. (That doesnt mean that sometimes an unknown wont come in and be 100% right)

and on that note... opening the "Newbies & FAQs" doesn't seem to change from week to week, and that having been said, i do like to give them the little advice i think i know. but i'm thinking Nate should relocate a gigantic search box right in the middle of this section that can't be missed lol

sometimes I think there should be a quiz that you have to pass to be able to use the "reply to thread" button in any thread but your own

Not a great solution, but hey

+1. and if you fail you should be sterilized. it escapes my why the common sense gene does not activate in SO many ppl. the entire point of the newbies section is to give good advice, not to have to sort through the incoherent jumbles of text and try to find out what to do

In your OP, the part where you flamed people for giving misleading information, you have every right to do so in my opinion.

It's not even close. How can you HONESTLY think that a generic map is going to be just as good as one made for YOUR car, with the same fuel you use, at the same altitude, and all the other variables (there are THOUSANDS)?????

Quit pulling theories from your ass, if you don't KNOW what you're talking about (in this case you don't have a clue), then don't try to give advice. It's not helping anyone, only making it worse when people have to come in and correct your misinformation.
