(Natural?) frustration

Postby david613 » Mon Apr 20, 2020 11:04 am

Many times, I ask and receive help from very nice people on the forum.

In return, I can give nothing to help others because of my very limited knowledge about Open Office.

This is feeling frustrated on a very nice forum. :knock:

Don't worry.
Most, if not all of us were in the same situation when we started on the forum.
It takes time and study to learn anything.
At some point, hopefully, you'll see a post, whether already responded to or not, that you do have knowledge about.
While we encourage participation from users to help other users, it is not a requirement to be able to ask questions on the forum.

We can not be proficient in all fields. You can compensate by helping others in things you are proficient in.

In open office to you will get more proficient with time and will be able to help.

You know what? You just helped.

The assurance that we do something useful is an important motivation for us (not the only motivation, but still important). You just supported that part. Thanks!

Keep up the good work, and provide assistance to your fellow man, to the best of your abilities. Have an excellent day, and these days: stay safe!
