Oh god I'm guilty of the second one. Also hi Trihan!

To be fair though, I think that *most* people say "Would it be possible to...?" just to ask in a polite manner, instead of going with "do this for me" or "can you do this".

Unless of course, the person clearly uses this phrase in a sarcastic/condescending way, in which case it becomes even more infuriating.

Fair enough. I just think more people should ask "would it be feasible" instead of possible. I guess I've just had bad experiences with that one in specific because it usually comes with something really annoying to do or just basically redoing something entirely.

"It shouldn't be too hard" they say, while being unable to achieve said thing themselves, having no knowledge of what they're actually asking you to do, and trying to make your work seem far easier and less time consuming than it actually is.

I am guilty of the third one. As @ScorchedGround mentioned, I use it in the same manner as you'd use please, though.

I just had one bad experience. Most people that I do commissions for are always so polite and easy to talk to. Guess I have luck ^^

I love that "this should be easy" most, but another favourite is "I tried and it did not work", especially without further clarification or proof.

"I want you to recreate in painful detail this specific system from a game. I will just tell you I want that without bothering to ask if you've ever played the game or are familiar with the system. I will provide no additional information so if you take the job you will literally be researching the entire thing yourself with no extra compensation to make up for the timesink."

@Avery OH MY GOD YES. "I got an error". Well okay, there are a lot of those. Any chance you could show or tell me what it was?

It may seem stupid because I don't code... But I agree so much! ><

I spent 3 years on RPG Maker MV without posting anything (there is A LOT of issues which were already answered somewhere somehow!)
People act like we're in their head or should do their work...
Damnit, it's your game: just do it or stop, but don't ask SO MUCH to others!

Sorry, got fired cause I saw a post asking how to download the game!! ><

"I saved the image, but it doesn't show up in my game."
"Where did you save it?"
"To my desktop."

You forgot " oh I changed my mind I want it to do this now - it's just a little change" and " why can't it do this?" Which wasn't in the original request.

(And I don't even code and know of these lol)
