Is it a season thing? I never thought of that…

Young newcomers looking for easy, quick solutions… they will always keep comming.

We should keep the DUC open and unrestricted as it is, and we old-timers try not to get so annoyed.
agreed, though it would be fair to have a popup / interstitial page that says: "hey this is your first post, welcome! please be sure to provide the following info in your message if you're asking for help."

Well, not all first-time posters are asking for technical assistance, though most are. But it's an idea.

Another thing; many newcomers are so new that they won't even understand half of the advise in the "Help us help you" page, or understand what technical info to provide.

I think we'll just have to live with it. But your idea could work if implemented right.

We have here a typical example from just hours ago. I think my comment about laziness holds:

Pro tools won't play.
