Bug Reporting Guidelines
Monday June 7th, 1999
"More and more folks are using mozilla and writing bugs. This is great! What is not great is the quality of the bugs being written. Engineers and I spend many hours pinging back and forth with bug reporters regarding better info needed. We want to fix the bugs! But we need better bug writing."
Please check out the guidelines, and please continue to submit those bugs!
Then clicking "OK" would start a nice window.open() with the bug-guidelines page!
-=Yusuf=-, wondering why such a simple solution hasn't been implemented yet...
To the poster of the 1st message in this article.
To have a window that pops up saying:
"OK, have you read the bug-writing guidelines? Click "OK" to read them, "Cancel" otherwise."
when they click on a bug submittal link is actually a pretty good idea. I'm surprised they don't do that already is it has been such a problem.
...I'm surprised they don't do that already *if* it has been such a problem.
Boy, my typing skills have been severly lacking as of late.

I'd be OK w/that under one condition... a cookie (or some other tracking) is set when you confirm reading of the instructions. That way, you don't have to see the same message box every time (like you do when you go to d/l the binaries, wish they'd do something 'bout that, too... :O)
I hate those stupid cookies! They are thoroughly patronizing and can cause me to disable cookies.
Dammit, wheres that link that allows us to diable patronizing Anon posters!!
Who exactly is this anonymous fool who keeps posting, and writing "I hate those patronizing <insert technological advance here>!"?
Please. Get a Life. *All* js windows are not patronizing. I trust bugzilla.mozilla.org with enough common sense to do the window tastefully.
And please, oh mighty anonymous one, tell us all how cookies are patronizing? Do you browse your cookie file often? Or do you just hate the idea of doing things efficiently?
-=Yusuf=-, flaming gently.
I hate those stupid posters who critisize Anonymous posters! They are thoroughly patronizing and can cause me to dislike those stupid posters who critisize Anonymous posters!

So you want to dislike us posters who critisize Anonymous posters, do ya...
Well, In my case at any rate, I think you'll have to get in line. There's a few others who dislike me for critizing too.
Can't we all just get along?
