979: Wisdom of the Ancients
|Wisdom of the Ancients|
Title text: All long help threads should have a sticky globally-editable post at the top saying 'DEAR PEOPLE FROM THE FUTURE: Here's what we've figured out so far ...'
This comic is pretty self-explanatory, as to the left of the frame is the feeling Cueball gets when he sees a thread on an online forum with the same error and no solution. Those type of hanging posts with no conclusion are majorly annoying, which is why you see Cueball standing up and shaking his monitor in the right frame.
In many forums it is considered polite to post the exact fix that you came across, so this exact event can be avoided.
In a few comics Cueball will get the help he wants.

- Never have I felt so close to another soul
- And yet so helplessly alone
- As when I Google an error
- And there's one result
- A thread by someone with the same problem
- And no answer
