Default Dying diy moral

Diy meant a platform for sharing and helping each other, no matter who was asking.
It was meant to showcase the joy of making things which we have not done before and sharing the experience with others.

I believed knowledge when shared grows many folds.

But it seems that diy now a days i being limited to group buys.and kits.
And people keeping their ideas to themselves for profit.

Links to many good designs are directed to some website selling pcbs or kits for them.

the mere essence of sharing is now limited with very few.

I am very grateful to people like apex audio and many others who share open heartedly.

I am hoping the diy feel return back here.

My words will make many feel annoyed, But this is what i have felt.

There is still a lot of knowledge being shared, and some ignorance too!

However, I have noticed that a lot of questions on a "DIY Audio" site do seem to refer to commercial equipment. The clue is in the name.

viki - do not complain if other members are not doing your own homework ;

all I see is that you are asking and demanding , but without enough clear idea what your needs are .

asking for 200W amps in thread for 25W A class amp

then I mention KSA50 as much stronger class A amp , which will tear apart your speakers ...... and then you are - instead of making small search through forum , asking again in wrong place .

ask questions one by one , do your homework in a way that others have impression that you are really reading answers , and - sky is a limit

if you aren't able to give ppl that impression , you'll be simply ignored .

so - logic is simple - tell what you need , and be polite ; that sometimes means nothing more than to wait for your turn in line

Hi!

Well if you want to change the situation, be a role model and publish some circuits. There is always two sides to this. I share many schematics freely, but not all of them, some things have to be kept for customers.

I also see a trend that some people get lazy. Instead of reading the basics in some electronic books, just toss a question on the forum and somebody will work it out for them...

Best regards

Thomas

I don't recognize anything you say, really. Yes, there are a few people trying to eek out a living in this business, but I mostly see an abundance of freely accessible information and lots of helpful people around. You perceive a problem; I don't. This implies that it might have something to do with expectations.

friends i have no electronic background, I was audio crazy right from mt nursery days, but never had enough resources to indulge myself for such things.

I am trying to understand as much as i can, All the calculations and theories seem a bit alien to me right now, but with a little help and small efforts by fellow knowledgeable diyers could help me in eliminating the foolish questions which i may have been asking out of frustration.

I posted this because there may be many newbies like me with a lot of eagerness to learn and do things, But felt that people like me who have less knowledge about these things feel a bit left behind.

All i asked was for some help from the experienced people here.

If my words have been so bitter and annoying to members, I am extremely sorry to bring out my frustration in such manner

Kits are , and have always been, a big part of DIY. And not just audio. Airplanes, boats, furniture, musical instruments, etc. They make the hobby accessible to many people who don't have the time or skill to design and build from scratch.
Modding is a time honored sport, too.

I have to agree with Mastodon.
