Is it me silly or I am doing something wrong? I was constantly learning during my System administrator career, but when I review serverfault or superuser questions I find myself very difficult to help somebody with their problems. When I say that I was constantly learning I mean that I tried to troubleshoot each problem that came to me from users. I not only tried to fix it, but understand why the problem happened. Fixing the problem = reinstall Windows. Understanding the problem - finding fault module in Windows and replacing or repairing it. Perhaps may be my problem is that I am eager to learn too much topics: Linux, networking, Windows, security and it make it difficult to become expert enough to answer questions on serverfault. Serverfault is interesting for me because of job opportunities and personal pride.

    This is off topic here. But seriously, given the extreme low effort some people put into the basics - I would assume a 2nd year sysadin can contribute here and there. 10 years and - well - half the relevant question should definitely be in your answer capacity. Otherwise I would question your career choice and your learning. Want some fun? I AM NOT EVEN A SYSADMIN. I just do that on the side. But I do RTFM. – TomTom Jun 15 '18 at 11:36
  • This doesn't even really fit on Meta Server Fault, where questions about the site should normally be asked. – Sven Jun 15 '18 at 11:36
  • @Link08: He means that many questions here are very basic and should be easy to answer, because people don't put any effort into trying to find a solution or asking a good question. I don't know where this could be posted, becuase frankly, I don't get what the point of your post is in the first place. – Sven Jun 15 '18 at 11:46
