    I have something that I want to ask the staff but I am kinda of uneasy as I have been pestering the same guy over and over again in the past few weeks over a few issues. can anyone tell me how I can send the PM so he won't be offended and at the same time not find it irritative? I know they already have a hard time so....

    Here are my presets :

    1)

    "Respected Sir,
    Pardon me for interrupting you but if I may, can I please request the *****
    Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience caused"

    2)

    "Oh high and mighty _______,
    I request your great presence on this issue of mine.
    **********
    If I hath in anyway disturbed the great one, forgive thy user."

    3)

    "Hey bro,
    I have this issue I need solving. Will you please help me?
    The issue is ****"

    Oh and BTW, this is a valid question which needs some clearing. So I would appreciate, nice and sensible answers.
    RW.

    I think that you should simply wait.
    Honestly, these guys are all busy getting on with their lives,
    and they will reply to you, I'd guess.

    I tend to send 1 reminder, just in case it got lost in the mayhem,
    but they will reply. patience I would say RW and you will get your reply.

    Honest answer:

    "Honoured member, your request has been denied"

    "You have reached high and mighty 's answering machine. Please leave your message"

    "Yo dog, wassaa. Doing the slam dunk now, y'know, gtfo ttyl"

    So here 's the proper one:

    "Hi Jazzc, I <insert issue>. Could you <insert request>? Thanks, RW"

    Wasn't that hard, was it? :)

    Hi Jazzc, I have a hard time understanding what you mean and doing this manually. Could you make a web app that takes that text and offers a 2-field form where i can enter "issue" and "request" and also a "submit" button? Thanks, MadOctopus

    imagine you're a staff member, and that 99% of the stuff you deal with is bullshit that looks exactly like this.^

    under these circumstances, your best bet at getting your issue addressed would be to state it as directly and concisely as possible.

    the issue itself is what we look at, not all the filler you surround it with. if it's a valid issue, it'll get handled. if it's a bullshit issue, no amount of sugar-coating is going to make a difference.

    :)

    By the way MadMaddy, I have to be honest - you've been way to brave to say 'fucker' - even with joke purpose lol

    Lol.

    I didn't think too much about it when i posted that. It was meant to be a joke and i am glad that everyone got the meaning in the correct sense :p
