So, I've been using Ask Ubuntu for a while now, but the whole thing is rigged against the average user. So the same thing happens every time I have a problem on my computer and I go here for an answer.
First off, I'm asking the question and I can't use pictures to describe my problem because I need "reputation" So once I do get an answer some bully comes in and dislikes everything. He dislikes the answer because he has a better way of doing things that he doesn't feel like sharing, dislikes the question because:
- He doesn't like it for whatever reason.
- There's a similar question and it's a "duplicate" (which I already read with no success)
Next when a new user comes in and asks a question (that I know the answer to) one of two things happen:
- He gets the answer but can't vote the answer up because he's in the same boat I'm in
- the bully comes in and dislikes it because he has a "better", more complicated answer.
Let's look at this example
So after upgrading my computer will not start so I go to Ask Ubuntu and after an hour I find a solution replace systemd with upstart and my computer starts well I decide to share my answer and again a bully with more reputation comes in dislikes my answer because he has a "better" answer that he doesn't feel like sharing. This happened to me about 5 times
So I pretty much can't do about anything due to the bullies who misuse the reputation system.
Any solutions on how I can actually use Ask Ubuntu would be appreciated because so far the easiest thing is to just switch communities.
