hey so!!! are you asking a specific question online and not getting any help?

make a second account and answer your own question incorrectly

people will be piling on to correct you with specific explanations within an hour

it works literally every time ive been doing it for years

@Duende I used to have a friend help me with this in MMOs. Stand in the middle of the main city, shout/broadcast a question, then friend gives an obviously wrong answer.

Downside is 1/4 of the time others will instead chime in with more obvious wrong answers, and it'll become the meme for the next half hour.

@Duende well I mean yeah it's good for a laugh but I just wanted to know how to get to the leather amor merchant in the dark elf city without either the guards or skeletons killing me

@Duende I would be proud to nominate you for a Nobel Prize

@Duende or you'll be leaving wrong answers for others to find when they stumble upon the same question.

People are 100% more likely to swoop in with a correction than they are to help with the answer.
