People usually say "I'm new to AHK" when they actually mean "I don't even know what AHK is, I'm just here to beg for a gaming script or something like that"...

I've noticed that in most support threads, usually the first person to respond to that thread is the one that is the main help in the thread. Now, when it comes to the more complex scripts and such, there is a lot of input, but for the smaller ones where people just need a touch-up here and there, it is usually one person who responds to the thread the whole time. Either this, or it just gets resolved in such a timely manner, that no one else has a chance to respond.

If any of that made sense. Posted Image

I have observed the same thing. I am only speculating, but I see two main reasons for this. 1) the first person to respond is likely someone who believed they had the correct answer, and if they did in fact have the answer then other users don't usually have reason to post on that topic. 2) once a topic has a response, unless a second user is particularly interested in the topic or think they have something significant to contribute, most other users would be hesitent to 'but in', as it were, so again they are less likely to post...

And you seemed to think your post was convaluted. Posted Image

Bahaha, yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Just like you said, usually the first responded has the correct answer, it's just the OP either doesn't know how to implement it, or messed it up during the merging with their script. At this point, most other users skip over the topic because the correct answer was already given.
