I know David, and I’m sorry for being so touchy and impatient about this. McNeel employees are paid to grin and bear it while the rest of us are here for fun. Many of the volunteer old-timers handle it more gracefully than I do by just ignoring these threads completely. Some are very patient at re-explaining the same few things over and over. Where I lose it is when the new person tries to argue that posting the GH model and/or geometry isn’t relevant, when in fact, they have no idea what is relevant!
Maybe there should be some kind of required test to prove that new people have read the page about How to ask effective questions before being allowed to post on the forum?
By the way, it’s not ideal that the primary link to that page from here lands at the bottom (end) instead of the top (beginning) of the page. Also, in item #3 of that list ( 3. Attach minimal versions of all the relevant files), there is a line on the old forum that is missing from the new forum:
It is especially a good idea to post files that don’t require any non-standard components if at all possible. Not everyone has Kangaroo or Hoopsnake or Geco installed so if your file relies on those components, it might not open correctly elsewhere.
