help-circle














  • As a #2 person, when my level-of-current-knowledge hits a ceiling and I ask for technical advice in forums or lemmy or even social media, it often comes from a #1 person.

    Assuming its specialized knowledge few other #2 have.

    Half the time I get an answer (about what and how) AND background explanation (giving context and WHY).

    But half the other time a #1 doesnt realize easy things for them are hard for me. When they are miles ahead their answer assumes I have a host of other skills already in place. But I dont know what I don’t know so I dont ask for them.

    But … every answer from a helpfull stranger is appreciated. Just bridging knowledge is hard.
