As @jo-r, I, and many others can attest to, probably 80% of the people who post questions in the “Help and How To” forum category are brand new BSS owners who haven’t read any of the Tutorials, watched any of the videos, and have absolutely no coding skills.
Their questions are rarely asking for help with program features, but rather on how to build things that cannot be accomplished by simply dragging and dropping BSS components, or changing their appearance and function via the the program’s visual UI settings.
Some of the posts are so ridiculously outrageous, they are tantamount to, “I’m having trouble figuring out how to use Bootstrap Studio… can someone please show me how to use it to create a website just like YouTube?”
90% of the questions originate (I suspect) from impoverished countries where it’s common for the schools to indoctrinated the youth into believing their path to wealth is to become website or app developers, and then sell their services to “wealthy western clients” who outsource their needs to cheap overseas developers.
About two years ago I was very, very busy building websites, so I tried “offloading” some of the labor by using an overseas website company to build a website for a new client. I figured, “even if they get me something halfway decent, I’ll be able to spend a few hours polishing it up, and save myself a bunch of time.” I believe they charged me $300.
What I got back was essentially a free Bootstrap template I had seen many times before on the web, with inline CSS added everywhere, tons of spelling and grammar errors, and stock photos that were very hi-res, (5-10 megabytes) shrunken down via CSS to fit in spaces 350px wide. On top of it all, it was done in Bootstrap 3, while Bootstrap 4 had already been out for over a year. Needless to say, I was furious with myself for being so dumb.
They kept asking me to “send them the next project” while I tried to explain to them that the first site they did for me was essentially useless. They kept offering fix it, but I just wanted to forget I had ever even made the mistake of hiring them to begin with. It was obvious they had no idea how to build websites correctly.
The… cluelessness… that goes on daily on the Quora website is growing exponentially. We are getting just a fraction of that here, but even that fraction is filling up the BSS Help and How To forum category with questions that are just inappropriate. They are the sorts of questions that should be asked on stackoverflow or searched for with Google. I don’t know anyone here who wants to teach people how to build websites for free, because most of us who frequent the BSS forum are building websites ourselves to make a living. It just adds insult to injury when people come here expecting us to give them coding lessons under the auspices of “help with BSS.”
