I was wondering, how much of you check out the articles for help
and how much people do challenges without any help?

I sometimes need to check articles and forum posts, about %50 of the time I'd think, just because I have a nasty habit of seriously over complicating the challenges, or just missing a small grammar bit or way of wording, etc.

When it comes to understanding the basic concepts, though, I rarely ever need articles/forum posts to help.


The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.

It depends on the challange I guess. If it's something I'm at a complete loss with then I'll check an article.

Most of the time challenges are just a case of trial and error if you're on the right track. Articles can help you get on that track if your going completly the wrong way.

I check out articles if I'm stuck for more than 10 minutes.

You should read more, You've posted for help on damn near every challenge you've done. Use the forums as a last resort, You'll learn more by searching yourself.

I understand, but that's a huge exaggeration. I've asked for help around five times for 60+ challenges I've done. Now five might be a large number, but it certainly isn't anywhere close to the number of challenges I've done.

Even out of the threads I've made, Realistic 13's logs part is certainly flawed. If it works once out of 20+ times for the exact same input, there's really nothing that can be done about it. Today, the Basic 24 IRC bot quit.

The forums are my last resort. I try Google, HelpBot and the article before that. But I'm sorry if I appeared like a nuisance.

You seemed to have posted them all in the same week it seems, and I deleted a few more than what is still posted too. (Spoilers). Space them out if you need help not one after another that gets annoying.
