I'll answer since I've been working online for almost 20 yeas and I have owned, managed,
and operated forums, not to mention owning various programs online, etc.
I don't know how to sew on a sewing machine but I received one a couple of weeks ago and
decided I will learn. I jammed the machine and wouldn't work. I had some options. In my
frustration I could quit. Oh yes, so easy to quit. After all, the machine was jammed and nothing
I did would fix it. Also, since it is a new limited edition machine, I did not know what to do.
So what did I do? Did I quit? Well first of all, I looked through the OPERATION MANUAL and
read all the trouble shooting but nothing worked for the issue I was having. Then I decided
to do some google searches for this machine. Again, I drew a blank because the machine is
so new, there was no info about the issue I was having with it. I did submit an email to the
company but I knew it could be days to receive a reply. Then I decided to go to Youtube and
see if others had this same or similar issue with other sewing machines. Sure enough, several
various videos came up and I watched several. FINALLY, I came across one in which the answer
was so simple, that I was so amazed and was sure it couldn't me that simple.......but I did what
it said.....I took my hand and I gave the HandWheel a hard turn.....barely moved which of course
was the problem as the motor was jammed......but as scared as I was I would break it.....again
I did what the lady in the video said....she said give it a little UUUUMMMMFFF......so I did...I turned
it by applying more strength with a good UUUMMMFFFF.....and TADA! It now works fine. BY
simply giving the hand wheel a hard turn, I was able to unlock the motor.
YIPPEEE! I patted myself on the back, felt great, so happy it was fixed and I almost feel like
an expert now......even tho I can still only sew in a straight line.
So what was your question?
Oh yeah......well you see, there is LOTS OF HELP here....LOTS. There is info about tasks
in more than one place at ClixSense. There is also the TASKS sub forum. There is even
the CrowdFlower Moderator that answers questions in the Tasks sub forum. In addition
there is the CrowdFlower forum. Also, for most tasks all one need do is click on it, read
the directions, and follow the directions. IF a member does need help with a particular
task, they can always read and/or simply post the question here, there, or yonder.
People have options. Its the internet and there is loads of helpful information on just
about any subject you can think of. I could have given up learning to sew simply because
the answer wasn't blasted on a big sign in front of me. Some times people look for an
excuse to give up. It's almost amazing how many people do look for that excuse.
EVERY DAY, I deny payment proof posts. Every day. You know why? Because people
don't read. It plainly states to read the rules about posting payment proof and most
do but there are plenty that don't. I have to deny them because they post their email
and/or transaction id.
This is also what moderators are for and what helpful members choose to do. Answer
age old questions, over and over and over and over again.....even when the answer may
be right in the face of the person asking the question.
