Trains wont run at full speed.

Okay, look. Every time you complain about something, people have to pull teeth to get any sort of information from you.

I am issuing you a public warning, because you are wasting the time of people. I remind you that this is not a paid game, but rather the effort of volunteers, and you are stealing valuable time and resources of people trying to help you.

From here on, if I see you  making a vague complaint without giving FULL DETAILS - enough to REPRODUCE the problem - enough details so that people don't have to reply multiple times to get any sort of information out of you, I will end up banning you from the forum.

Let's not let it come to that, shall we?

From here on out, when you report a problem, you will give enough information so that a stranger would be able to reproduce it and understand what you mean. That means more than a three word reply. That means fully describing the problem, what version of Simutrans you're using, screenshots if needed to help show what you mean, and actually writing out the problem.

I'm very very tired of seeing people have to reply to you to ask for basic information to understand what you might possibly mean.

If you end up writing too much information, well, tough. That's the price you will pay. And it's not about the length of the post, it's about providing enough information to understand what you mean.

So here's the plan:

1. If I see a post with insufficient information again, I will make it so I have to approve all of your posts.
2. If I have to approve all of your posts, I will simply not approve ones with insufficient information.
3. If you do not learn by the time I tire of having to do that, then I will give you a temporary forum ban.
4. If you continue not to learn, I will permanently ban you from the forum.

All of THAT being said, I hope you improve so you can continue to be a member of the forum and community. You are welcome here, as long as we can fix this problem.

Do not forget my warning. No reply is necessary to this post, just do not forget it.

I have friends with autism, so I can understand how that can make things difficult. I myself have severe ADHD, and while it's nothing like autism, it and Aspergers are on the autism spectrum, so I do have a tiny insight directly - but only tiny.

I don't think that excuses not giving any information about problems, though.

Either way, though, please just try to give more information when you report a problem.

Just to say though, what is the minimum sentences that is needed to solve a problem? 2 or 3?

There is no fixed number for that. Generally, we'd like any information concerning the running of the game that you can give. The sticky post at the top of the bug report board has some guidelines.
