Do what makes you happy, not what impresses people on upload sites

So what would you do if impressing people on upload sites is the thing that makes you happy?
find an upload site with very low expectations ?
Now that would be quite pitiful.
Surely I am not the only beginner left here now?
know some are put off by the comments and the ones deemed as experts who don't have time for the likes of me!
Thanks for this section and hope I won't get too lonely in here!!!!!
no you won't - I shall be popping in
I asked what I knew to be a dumb question the other day but I had a mental block and got the usual read the manual reply!!
it would be nice to have a section where you you can ask what you want without being made to look stupid! We all have those mental block moments

What thread was that?
sorry it wasn't a thread - I know it was meant in jest but it just gets a bit tiresome when you're trying to get help
I get lot of inspiration from here and there is a lot of help and informatin available
sorry I don't mean to cause offence to anyone
actually I'll ask the really dumb question now if I may
you know when people mention stopping down or one stop intervals ie exposure
and given the dial is -1 click click 0 click click +1
if you stop down one from 0 is that just one click or click click -1
does that 0 click click -1 = one stop down
how do I do an embarrassed smiley lol
If your camera adjusts exposure in increments of 1/3 stop it will be 3 clicks to change your exposure by 1 whole stop (If it works in 1/2 stop increments it will be 2 clicks) HTH
Whilst I have a great sense of humour I cannot help thinking some people here forget this is a section for the beginners to feel comfortable in asking any questions and if they are just going to be mocked what is the point of this section.
Emailed the admin as the section is pointless as it stands.

And your question was?
Having just bought a tripod I can vouch for how helpful they are. It allows you to take your time and get the composition you want and once that is achieved you can tinker with the various settings on camera to see what you achieve - without losing the composition. It helps me think more about what I am taking and helps me be more relaxed when shooting... and prevents me rushing into shots and dashing off.
My lightweight Manfrotto Modo Maxi is ideal to carry around, if anyone worries about having a bulky tripod with them, and is cheap too when budget is tight.
There's a trick to repyling to what you consider and 'irritating' questions from newbies like me.
1) ignore it
2) answer it
3) answer it with a clever answer which makes someone look or feel small.
4) consider what three makes you look like to everyone else
5) return to 1
I hope I haven't offended anyone by this but this has been an issue on other forums I belong to (not Photo sites).
Everyone starts knowing very little and..yes.. some of the questions can be answered from the manual, but to be honest, the answer sometimes only really makes sense if you already know the answer, I can think of one or two of those in my Canon manual.
Need to be nice.
