If you didn't use such a vague/incoherent topic title and force people to click the thread just to see what your question was, you may have attracted more informed readers that could have given you your answer.

Next time put the question in the title and you might have some luck.

Perhaps nobody had an answer? I don't know the answer.

there was nothing vague or incoherent about uni's question. I haven't been to the forum in almost a month. it's dying and our community is a shadow of its former self, and people like me are at fault. he's perfectly right to be annoyed/sad. used to be there'd be a dozen answers within a day of posting something like this. Sorry uni!

He didn't say the question was vague, he said the 'Topic Title' was vague; and I agree, it was. Did you ever think maybe 51 people had no idea how to answer your question?

Unimatrix just needs to stop whining, he sounds like a 31-year-old child.

You can get a cable which does the transfer but costs. IMO though it's easier to just download them again by looking at your history, and is free.

i agree about the topic title. so many people dont realize that we're seeing the topic [i]outside[/i] of the subforum - perhaps in the Spy or the main page. seeing "new console question" can mean a myriad of things. i only clicked on it b/c i thought you were asking about the PS4 or next Xbox :/

it's like those people that title their topic something like "quick question"...

and, back to your original question, i'm one that didnt know the answer either.

even so if you figure something out on your own its always nice to post how you resolved your issue so that people in the future that see this topic will know how it was done.

the topic said new console question. in the old days of the caring neowin where we were actually active you'd click on the thread, read the post, and answer. you wouldn't look at the thread, think "oh i'm so high and mighty and president of the universe so my busy schedule won't allow me to actually try and find out what this is about", then go into the thread only to complain about how vague the topic was. neowin is dead, and again, it's people like me that are responsible. i can't be bothered to come here anymore, lost all motivation to do so. and this obnoxious attitude from some members doesn't help. uni's topic and question were completely valid.

i disagree. most views were from the people who though it was the question about the "new" consoles. ps4 or xbox720(or whatever)

i know i did it.

and all you "old time" members, i have being here for since 2001.
your whining does not help in the slightest. the feedback about topic name was actually more helpful for improving the forums. bitching about how bad it is is not helping anyone, really.
if you can't be bothered to come here anymore, then don't, simple as that. it will improve it for others who actually come here once in a while.

Yes. It would have been nice to see the solution posted, the topic title changed, and maybe even the topic pinned to help others.

All well and good [b]if[/b] the person reading the question knows the answer.

Which people only did after you chastised the 51 people who viewed the topic and didn't reply (probably because they didn't know the answer or wanted to know what the actual question was since your topic/thread title is as vague as you can get).

You know, it works both ways. You need to post informative thread titles. You need to be patient. You need to accept that there are tens of thousands of users to these forums and not all of them are going to know the answer to your question. Hell, you're a member and didn't know the answer. You ever stop to consider that there are others like you around here?

And that both ways thing - it's generally considered polite and good forum etiquette to post the answer to the question if you figured it out yourself so future members can find an answer easily by searching (which is also a great reason to use a meaningful thread title).

it wasn't my question metal dragon, it was the OP's. and panacea, just be quiet. you been here four years longer than me but your post count is half. I guess you'll say each one was a gem of wisdom while mine are whining fluff. anyway, my point is that there was very little patience towards the OP. Etiquette? What is this, congress? He didn't use offensive language and didn't do anything wrong. Could have posted updates or showed more concern, but beyond that there was no call to jump down his throat like that.
