Question Posted Saturday December 31 2011, 9:22 pm

Do you guys have any advice for a newcomer on the site? Like how to rate, how to give good advice. I've already answered a few on here but I'm worried that my advice might be bad.


(PS. I added my username for a reason so that you guys can give me a nice feedback and fully informed advice)

Welcome Denabella!

Answer the questions the best you can and try to relate to the situation as best you can. When I answer questions I try to think of a time or experience that is similar to the person's situation. That way the person knows that I understand but also can understand they aren't alone. Do your best! Good luck! :)

I took a look at your site and I would say so far so good.

Giving advice is a learned experience which comes mostly through our own experiences. You said in your column that you wish to give advice to teenagers as you are one yourself. This is a good starting place as you are giving advice based on your own life experience.

As you get more comfortable giving advice you may want to venture further a field. Have you ever heard the expression that someone can't see the forest for the trees. What it means is they are too close to the problem to see the solution. We get a lot of these questions in the form of; "How do I find?" If you are good at doing research or using search engines then you may want to answer some of these questions.

We also see a lot of questions asking for help with what looks like homework questions. Most of us will not answer these questions. Some may steer them to where they can find the answer if it looks like it may require research to answer the question. Use your own good judgement with these questions.

Most of all as you answer more question your confidence will grow.

As some others have said, giving good advice can't be taught.

The best advice comes from your own life experience. There's a reason that I almost never answer teenage dating questions. It's because I didn't really date in high school, and I have no clue (also no patience) when it comes to that sort of thing. I answer what I know. It means that you avoid the sort of "I dunno XD hope I helped LOL!" answer that you see from time to time.

When you're going through questions, take a look at the advice that you see from others. I have my favourite columnists, and I've learned a lot from seeing what they have to say.

Don't be afraid of bad ratings. I've had a pretty low average rating before this. Why? Because sometimes people will ask for advice without actually wanting advice. They want you to tell them what they want to hear. That's not advice. They'll rate you low because you dared to go against what they wanted. Don't be afraid of them. Even if you don't get through right away, maybe some shred of wisdom will make its way through.

Aside from that, it's all about having good intentions and being honest.

I have to say for the advice thing just be yourself when it comes to that and answer what you know. I was new here once too and 1 thing that I did was I went to different columnists page well there column and looked and the advice that they gave to others. That really helped me alot. When you give advice to someone most of the time they will rate and not alot of people do this but when they rate they leave a side not saying like thanks for the advice so on and so forth. Like I said before just be yourself and you will do just fine.
If you need anything else and you want to ask me just send me a question in my inbox and I will try to answer it as soon as I can.
Hope I helped.

You can find everything you need to know about the site (including the ratings system) at the following link:

As for how to give good advice, I'm not sure that's something that can be taught. What I will say is to always make sure you have read and understood the question fully, and be honest but polite. You will soon start to see how well your advice is going down by the ratings you receive.
