Was poking around my usual haunt, the MS-Access tag, when I came upon this disaster:

MS Access VB forms

I hope I didn't come off sounding too snotty in my comment, but the guy/gal didn't even tag it properly, and it's clear he's fresh from Boot Camp. In the old days, this was a no-brainer: Close it because even a minimal understanding of the application wasn't shown.

So, what do we do now? Do we just downvote it?

    Option 1: .. unclear what yu are asking ... Option 2: This question appears to be off-topic because it lacks sufficient information to diagnose the problem. Describe your problem in more detail or include a minimal example in the question itself. – devnull Feb 19 '14 at 13:39

Can you figure out what help the user needs?

  • Yes, I can, but I am irritated that the question is so cluelessly phrased.
    • Edit if you can, downvote if you want
  • No, I have no proof this person can work the tool or knows a single keyword from the language or what a database even is.
    • Close as unclear what you're asking because you don't know if they are asking for code, instructions in the tool, design advice or what

Works for me.
