at the risk of sounding like a complete asshole elitist, its these people that frustrate me the most. it gets tiring seeing the same questions being asked when they have been answered time and time again. im not bashing anybody who came here to learn, but the people who sign up and think they are entitled to every bit of information thats already here without even bothering to use to search bar.THEN there are people who just treat StP as a regular internet forum, like Reddit or something, and I find that to be ridiculous. I think, personally, that if you are going to be a member here, you should associate with/contribute to at least one of the sub forums that exist on StP.
i will also take great offense if you say anything about how my planned first freight trip from key west to anchorage alaska isnt a good idea. i only have 3 days so i gotta make good time thanks in advance for the tips.Hey I'm new here just signed up today and I've never traveled before but I'm going to hitchhike and hop freight when I get done with uni. So take about an hour or two out of your day to create a list of everything I'll need to bring, tell me how to do it and where's nice to go, k thx.
Says the lurker without a profile picture....i tend to like this being a community of people who contribute to each other, rather than get the info they need and peace out...im not trying to sound like a dick, but......yaWhy not just ignore it and not feel so obligated to answer, instead of posting skimp replies? If it’s not affecting you don’t worry about it
I more meant people who currently working, like you, or are too old, disabled, taking care of a sick family member, ect....mainly former travelers....New A really creepy lady in Cleveland told me that she wanted to live vicariously thru me, with my experiences as a traveler. I feel like that's the closest we get to people that want to talk about traveling but can't, for whatever reason.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with these type of people being here. I am one of them. I work seasonally, like right now, and it happens to be the time I contribute the most to StP, less so when I'm on the road, but that's when I actually rely on the info ON StP to get me where I need to go, when I'm traveling.As someone who is currently housed and is saving for the next travels, I don't see the problem with me or the like being here.
since youd like to participate in the community by commenting would you mind filling out yer profile a bit and maybe uploading a profile picture as @Coywolf pointed out. we kinda generally arnt interested in having people here who arnt at least pretending to be part of the community.Why not just ignore it and not feel so obligated to answer, instead of posting skimp replies? If it’s not affecting you don’t worry about it
