If I could get just one reputation point for every time I've been replied to or just seen a reply to someone else saying, "it doesn't work", and even seeing it inside a question, I would have been passed the 10K mark long time ago
Nothing drives me up the wall like this. It is the same here at work, if a component fails, they say it is defective or doesn't work.
What does "it doesn't work" means. Go and think about it logically. Take any code in an answer for eaxample. "It doesn't work" is used for the following
It works, but it is not the desired layout. I want circle, instead I'm getting a square
It works, but I asked the element to be wrapped in an
atag, not a
It works, but there is a bug in the code
The output is incorrect. Instead of A, B is returned
If I add the code, I get a white screen of death
The code has some kind of synatx/parse error
The code is suppose to return A, but instead it returns A, B and C
The pagination links does show up, but it does not page to the next page
The pagination links does not show up as they should. The link is incorrect or the number of pages is incorrect
The code is totally wrong and is completely not what I was looking for, or according to standards, this code is illegal
And I can go on till by fingers bleed.
My plead is, please stop using those these words. If you really need to be helped, explain why something does not work for you, specify the exact problem. You will save everyone a lot of time
