Car analogies are simply inappropriate and do not illustrate problem solving in relation to software.

Moreover, in my view at least they potentially constitute an unfair comparison and invoke incorrect ideas about improving software applications such as Cubase.

In the very least they are unfair to developers and provide an excuse for trolling from individuals and invite corporate trolls.

OK so this is more your own philosophy. I find nothing in the "Terms of Use" nor can I find any official statement or warning from Steinberg regarding or forbidding the use of car analogies.
In many cases I agree, car analogies can be inappropriate and even misrepresentative. This can be true of any analogy however - it's the nature of the beast. Any analogy should be taken with a grain of salt!

should we categorize that post under "exhaust", "catalyst" or "gearbox" ?
it is not directly related to cubase though.

Kettle? Black. Black? Kettle. A non-issue griefing post. Not trolls but not everyone is a nodding dog to every griefing post.
As I say, if you have issues there is a support desk and the issues section. If it's not in there it's NOT an issue.
It has been moved to the lounge because it has no relevance.

Issues:
Use this forum for an overview of collected issues and to report new ones.


If the forum is not used properly how can anyone take it on face value that an "issue" is not caused by the user (who cannot use the forum properly) not knowing Cubase which is infinitely more complex? That's the position we're in.
Can you not see that? Please try it might save you a lot of wasted time (name calling) in the future. As would giving some system details when reporting a specific issue.

If an "Issues" thread is real, then it is moved to "Collected issues" or "Solved".

And I grin when I realise the car analogies are aimed at explaining the real world to those who have very dodgy "issues". And who haven't a clue how to use a simple forum let alone Cubase. :lol:
But yes, car analogies must be a waste of time given that. :mrgreen: If one can't use a forum then what hope driving? :mrgreen: Do cars really have six wheels?! Must be a bug because one's on it's side and the other's got no tyre. Call that a professional car? :lol:

Car analogies are very good. If I buy a car, I expect it to drive nicely. Surely I don't want it to freeze and turn off itself suddenly here and there. Probably they make them reliable, because they know there will be no chance for bug fixes. If there are bugs in a car, the whole series will get a bad name, probably the whole company too, and they will be soon out of business. But if cars could be updated with bug fixes, then I bet they would be half reliable too, just as software.

Sounds like there are some Car experts here, that's great, because I found another tire in the trunk. Now I'm wondering should I put it on the car? Where? I don't see any place to fasten it to??? HELP

That's the point, it's like comparing apples and oranges.

It simply doesn't work and any one who promulgates such nonsensical ideas should be given short shrift before a warning and then a ban shortly thereafter.

Am I serious?

Yes I am but I do understand new users will need to be cut some slack.
